The garbage guy won't take them...leaves them on the curb time and time again.

What is everyone's suggestion on where/how to get rid of old rotors. They are heavy so you would think the scrap metal people would want these. In my area, they don't.
I actually have several sets now sitting in my shed. They are an eyesore to leave in my hard somewhere.

I usually just put them in the mixed recyling bin on the street. They take any kind of scrap metal though - steel, cast iron, whatever. If I didn't have that, I could take them to a city recyling center.

Is there a recycling center run by a city or county authority that takes scrap steel and iron?

Maybe you can throw them away one at a time in your trash bin, or maybe at a trash bin at work?

I take them to a metal recycler and get money for them. You don't get a lot, maybe 4 or 5 dollars for a set, IIRC.

Yeah- I'll call around for a recycler- a few bucks is a few bucks!

Metal re-cycle center. I was thinking about just burying them...send them back where they came from, but the local metal recycler gave me a few bucks.

I typically call the first ad I find on Craigslist for Scrap Metal. You leave them on the curb and they pick them up. I've even gotten rid of old stoves, dishwashers, fridges, etc...

I'll bet there's something fun on Pintrest that could be done with them :p

I'd try a recycler though like others mentioned. I'd say search for an apartment complex that you could toss them into a dumpster, but that would probably be illegal. The bonus of a recycler is the benefit of getting money for them even if not much.

Put them to the curb with a sign saying "For Sale $10": somebody will steal them ;)
