    I would say about $20-30 but dont quote me on that, also you will probably have to cut it in half before they will take it

    Around here they need to be cut in two or they wont take it. It goes as light iron - about .085/lb.
    People may laugh at me, but that's ok. I laugh all the way to the bank.

    How would you go about cutting one of these suckers in half?

    I took in a 1000 gallon tank, and all they wanted was a hole big enough for the man to stick his head inside and see that it was empty. I cut it in the center of one end, because I know they'll cut it in half and use it for a bin anyway. I figured I'd leave it as useful as possible for them.
