The price for aluminum is up from 30 to 40 cents a pound.

Employees are constantly working with a customer and usually have two or three waiting in line. Most customers say cans are the easiest to keep and recycle and it's a bonus whenever there's a good price.

“When it's full, just drop it off. It takes twenty minutes usually and I’m out the door with a check.”

It's not known if the price will keep rising.
