Default Best places to cash in aluminum cans in RI?

Hello! I am from Warwick, and have been saving aluminum cans to cash in for some extra $$$. I was just wondering if anyone could point me to the most reputable scrap metal dealers to cash them in. Is anyone else out there doing this too? Thanks in advance!

John from Warwick

I know people that cross into mass to collect .05 each for cans and bottles. Other then that I am not sure.

I'm not sure if you can go to the Johnston landfill and cash them in. I never tried. Good luck!

I don't know of places anywhere in RI that cashes cans. I go to Mass in one of the supermarkets to cash them and there is like a $15 limit(i think) on the amount of money you can get.

Thanks everyone. I guess it makes sense to save them and then head into Mass for the deposit. Take it slow folks!

You guys take them up to Massachusetts and still get a deposit refund even though you didn't pay it??

No wonder they have a limit on it in MA... All you crazy RIers going up there and cashing in.
