Default quick question regarding recycling and a starter

Does it go in the recycling? Or, what should I do with it? Burned out last year and is now a paper weight. I replaced it as soon as it was an issue and it's just sitting around in a closet. Need to rid myself of it, but don't want to be a hassle to the City or an environmental concern.

Engine starter? Set it out by the curb, a scrapper will surely pick it up.

Better to go into a scrap yard than recycling. In "recycle" bin it will likely end up in the landfill. It's not "recyclable" as in curbside collection. At a scrap yard it will be properly recycled as metals.

BTW - Good question, and responsible of you to ask.

Ables Bradley will pick it up, the guy that hauls scrap metal, and repairs appliances

Take it and have it rebuilt and keep as a spare.

I think this is what I'm going to do.

Thanks for all the responses, fellows.

Peace and tight lines to everybody.

Edit: Who rebuilds starters around here? (Clicked the button too fast.)

They are awesome had a couple of starters and alternators rebuilt by them. Think they charged me 45.00 to rebuild the starter.

I took an alternator to the local alternator repair shop and he had a pile of old ones and offered me $3. Better then nothing and it keeps it out of the landfill.
