  • Well, we recycle all of our aluminum cans, and we get about eight bucks for twelve trash bags full of cans... I don%26#039;t consider that to be very high, but I do know that it is different for just about everywhere.
    I suggest first finding out where you need to go to recycle your cans, then either going there and asking them or calling them. 40% 2 Votes
