Remove all non-aluminum parts, such as wood, screws, nails, plastic, screens and glass from the frame. Aluminum doors and windows are often fastened together with screws and are usually dismantled easily. If the aluminum is attached to the wood of a window, use a flat bar to free it.
Place the longer pieces in a vehicle or trailer and place the smaller pieces in a garbage can or other container. Use a hacksaw or reciprocating saw to shorten or lighten longer and heavier pieces.
Bring the aluminum to the scrap yard, place it on the scale and collect your money.
Things You Will Need
- Screw driver or drill
- If you are also bringing other types of metal to recycle, separate them to shorten the amount of time it takes to drop off the materials. There may be several people waiting to use the scale.
