Aluminum can prices down to 40 cents a pound

Recycling in Frederick Md

The price paid for aluminum cans has fallen... in Frederick Maryland I used to get $.55 a pound and now I'm getting $.40 a pound.

This is because the price of oil fell a bit... fear not, we had a mild summer on the east coast of the US.

Winter is most definitely coming... if we get a blizzard or if we get a violent cold snap, the price of heating oil, especially the price on the spot market will shoot way, WAY up... and the price of aluminum will shoot up with it.
