I've found MANY places to recycle aluminum, but not that many that BUY aluminum, which is what I was looking for in the first place. I'd love to sell all these cans and donate it to a deserving charity too, but at this time in life we really NEED the money that might come from it. I'm trying to save cans, build small items by hand, do work on the internet from programming to writing articles right now, just ANYTHING that might earn a little money, some work, some don't. As for selling the cans, I might be able to do it at Atando, which isn't that far but the traffic is awful. I'm only about 17.5 miles from another place in Harrisburg, but that's a long drive even though I know the traffic won't be that bad. I'm also looking to dump a couple of Atlantic City $10 silver tokens, and they might even be worth more than that since they are .999 silver. Well, that's about it. And no more arguing!

Such a nice fellow.. You can buy crack pipes if you need some (or one) from any number of places, just do some searches. I certainly don't have OR need one, as I don't do crack as you seem to. The only cans I'm using are pure aluminum, the stuff that soda and beer come in usually, and I don't think I need any tomato (no "e" Mr. Quayle, unless it's plural you *) cans, or any pickled anything (like your brain, maybe?)

Yeah, you could definitely say "One flew over". What the heck is your problem?

Definitely do some checking on these tokens as there may be a numismatic value to them well beyond the melt value. (currently $18.10/oz) Some of these tokens are worth hundreds of dollars depending upon rarity and condition. There has been a huge upswing in people collecting and holding onto bullion metals and .999 silver rounds are very popular. The US Mint, for example sold 30 million silver eagle coins last year. If you have any pre-1965 coins, you can get about 12X face value regardless of condition because they are 90% silver. This applies to the dime, quarter, half dollar and dollar coin from these years. Dollar coins however usually also have a numismatic value to them beyond the metal as does any coin with an S mint mark. Do some checking if you have any of this like you should do with the tokens.

On the cans, I recommend making a can crusher and just storing them until you get a load big enough to take to a place that will pay you good money for them. You can easily reduce the size of an aluminum can down to 5% or so by volume without much effort.

Any metal is valuable these days as the prices of commodities continue to rise because of the $ being turned into junk. It's one of the reasons that pre-1982 pennies are quickly disappearing from circulation as they are worth 2.3 cents due to the copper in them. (it's illegal to melt them)
