Metal plates that are in good, sellable condition can be donated to the locations throughout the A2 Reuse Network. If the plates are broken, or in a unsellable condition, they are accepted in curbside recycling bins, or at the Drop-Off Station and Recovery Yard.
Metal is a widely accepted recyclable, so do not throw any old (bad condition) plates away.
Live Zero Waste!
Always try to salvage/donate any old plates!
