Metals

Instructions

Drop scrap metal off at the Berkeley Recycling Center at 1201 2nd Street, Berkeley. If not, the City of Berkeley offers 1 Bulky Waste Pick-up per calendar year for single-family homes and multi-unit residential buildings up to 4 units, but bulky waste pickup will not be recycled.

A wide variety of metals can also be recycled at various local businesses. Consult - www.recyclewhere.org.

Alternatives

Use for as long as possible before disposal.

Facts

Make sure any metal is clean of food residue. Each year North America recycles more steel by weight than aluminum, paper, glass, and plastic combined.
