Recycle old aluminum soffit and fascia
 
Assuming I can recycle aluminum soffit and fascia, about how much can I get for it?

Tom Struble 04-10-2011 09:02 PM

:yes:about 60 or so cents a pound

Nice, easy money.

Honestly, if its just soffit and facia that you want to recycle, you will probably spen more in gas driving to the scrap yard than you will get. I'm a remodeler and recently recycled an entire house worth of aluminum siding for about $350. That was soffit, fascia, siding and accessories. Average size house just soffit and fascia will be about $40. Maybe $50.

$40 in your pocket is better than paying $20 to bring it to the dump.

I go out of my way to recycle.

I took all of the aluminum soffit off of my house last fall and I believe we got $35 for it at the scrap yard. I was just glad to get it out of the yard and would have given it to them for free.

Sold a little a few days ago for 70 or 75 cents per. As high as I can remember it ever being. But, I haven't really kept up with it. I didn't know it ever got ove .49 maybe .60 a few times when I happen to see the price.
