    Default Recycle Brake Rotors?

    Do brake rotors have scrap value?

    I am not positive, but I'm thinking I took some rotors to my metal recycler
    and he didn't want them. I know I took something down there that he didn't
    want, but I can't remember what it was -- rotors are the only thing that I
    would have laying around though ...

    Rotors are usually made of iron. They would want that.

    Scrap yards take them. But they don't like to deal with folks that
    only have a few pounds of metal. I've hauled in rotors and drums
    along with other parts, but only when there is enough for a trailer
    load. When in doubt, call.

    Cast isn't worth much at all for scrap...

    I'm just going to toss them into the recycle bin that I have to put out at
    the curb and let the trash company sort out what they want to do. It's not
    worth my effort to go to the recycling center ...

    I have read online somewhere that any bit of scrape metal has some
    value at the scape yard. thanks Jamie

    That's too bad. Because they will probably just send it to a landfill,
    they probably aren't set up to recycle iron. Whereas if it goes to a
    scrap yard, it will get recycle.

    According to reports, our curbside recycle is pretty good. I have to put
    recyclable stuff, newspapers, plactics, bottles, etc., into a separate can
    from my regular trash. We're told that the can gets sorted somewhere and the
    various materials are separated into piles where they do the most good.

    Assuming what They say and what They do is the same, my rotors should find
    their way to a good home. I'll be out a few bucks, but I won't have to buy
    gas to drive across town to the recycle center.

    Take it to an iron foundry (iron casting company) its usually pretty good stuff
    and can be remelted for garden furniture, brackets and plain exhaust
    manifolds/headers. Turbos tend to use spherodial graphite iron as it doesn't
    crack so easy under extreams of temperature change.
