    Default Aluminum can crusher?

    Aluminum can crusher?

    Got one? Which one?

    Wall mounted? Counter mounted?

    I'm not up to elbow or forehead crushing anymore.

    Wall mounted. I can't remember the brand. We crush the cans and take to
    them to the Humane Society who sells them to raise money.

    Here in NY there's a 5 deposit, I return all deposit containers.
    But still I crush empty food cans so they occupy less space in the
    recyclables barrel, I lay the can on the door mat and simply step on
    it. Even when I lived without deposit containers I crushed everything,
    mostly my stomping. Anyways, a real manly brewski guzzler should be
    able to shred aluminum cans with their teeth.

    Janet,

    I didn't know that. Great idea. I'll call them! I just dump them into
    the recycling bin at the park.

    I would like to reduce the bulk of them.

    Best,

    Andy

    Sheldon,

    I've got a recycling bin but dragging it up to the curb is a chore. I
    just bag them up and dispose of them at the park on the way to the
    supermarket.

    There's no refund in PA and I'm not about to re-enact the Seinfeld TV
    episode!

    Best,

    We have a 5 cent deposit - can't crush them, they have to go through
    the recycling machine. Anything with soda in it, anyway....no deposit
    on flavored water or any non-soda.

    I give them all to a friend of mine to cash in as I don't have time to
    drive over to the recycler.

    I simply step on them. :-) Works for me and it's free.

    In the little beach town of Ocean Beach, San Diego, CA, USA, my
    enterprising house roommate hired the kids to collect aluminum cans for a
    few pennies. He had a scale to make it appear legit. He'd then add lead (?)
    nails into them and crush them, making probably 10x the weight. Kept us in
    beer. I was NOT a partner in crime, just a proud shareholding beach BUM!!!

    The kids were so genuinely industrious running around town for pennies. He
    just sat there soaking up the sun. I did too. LOL!!!

    I have two. Neither are mounted. One sits on the counter, the other sits
    on the floor. I find it is just easier to stomp on them or just crush them
    with my hand. They don't get as flat when I use my hand, but it works for
    me. We have recycling through the trash collection so I just put them in
    the can they provide. They don't care if they're crushed or not.

    I have a wall mounted can crusher. I don't bother with it
    anymore as I just switched to two cans/bottles recycle bins
    if a month's worth of recyclables doesn't fit in one.

    I used to collect them to cash in for an independent rescue person who had
    been spending a lot of her own money to help animals. She wasn't 503c but
    she didn't let it deter her from doing what she could. I put a message on
    freecycle that I'd collect people's cans and come get them. One person gave
    them to me already crushed but the rest weren't. I'd spend hours crushing
    them with my foot. Took it's toll on my knees.

    Need to check your local regulations - Here in Cali-fornicate the recycle
    centers are ONLY obligated to pay the CRV (deposit) on 50 units or less per
    type 'plastic glass or aluminum cans. Over 50 units they revert to the per
    pound price which is about 1/2 to 1/3 the deposit price. Its a rip-off.

    Be careful too - you have to say I want the 10 cents per bottle CRV else
    they weigh the plastic.

    I used to have one mounted on the wall. They don't want cans crushed
    anymore for our recycling program. I don't remember why and I don't
    care... I just throw them in the bin and they take care of the rest.
