The Answer

A. $7.51.

Hence I'm no longer dumpster-diving metal.  It's just not worth it.

I am going to keep collecting pop cans, and I'm going to finish stripping a nice big pile of copper wire, though.  The pop cans are easy and copper will surely go up in price by the time I get through that pile.  (Plus the copper I do on my commute--he drives, I strip, since reading in the car gives me a headache.)

But scooping up random metal things on the curb?  No, not worth it.

  1. Well, it also helps keep the metal out of the landfill, right? It's a hard choice, to figure out what things are worth intangibly.
