About this book
What makes this book unique is a specific focus on aluminum recovery, rather than just recycling in general. It also offers an integrated discussion of scrap recovery and re-melting operations and includes economic as well as technical elements of recycling. Important topics include a discussion of the scrap aluminum marketplace and how secondary aluminum is collected and sorted, the design and operation of furnaces for melting scrap, the refining of molten aluminum, and the recovery and processing of dross from re-melting operations. This second edition features more information on aluminum scrap pricing and the economics of recycling, the analysis of dross processing methods currently in use by the industry, and drosses produced. The book has been updated throughout to include the most up-to-date information.

About this book
"An excellent historical account of recycling over the last 230 years." -Choice "The author deserves praise for his remarkable research and his attention to the particulars that defined the growth of the U.S. scrap industry. . . . For those who know little of the industry's past, an astonishing vista will open when they turn the pages of this book." -Scrap "Zimring goes beyond the limited historical literature on municipal solid wastes. Cash for Your Trash gives us a sweeping account of industrial recycling long before residential recycling became popular. It is a fine contribution to urban and environmental history." -Martin V. Melosi, author of Garbage in the Cities "Cash for Your Trash is an insightful study that deepens our understanding of environmental history and contemporary environmental issues from the perspectives of business, social, and urban history." -Joel A. Tarr, Carnegie Mellon University Long before our growing levels of waste became an environmental concern, recycling was a part of everyday life for many Americans for a variety of reasons. From rural peddlers who traded kitchen goods for scrap metal, to urban children who gathered rags in exchange for coal, individuals have been finding ways to reuse discarded materials for hundreds of years. In Cash for Your Trash, Carl A. Zimring provides a fascinating history of scrap recycling, from colonial times to the present. Integrating findings from archival, industrial, and demographic records, and moving beyond the environmental developments that have shaped modern recycling enterprises, Zimring offers a unique cultural and economic portrait of the private businesses that made large-scale recycling possible. Carl A. Zimring received his doctorate in history from Carnegie Mellon University in 2002. He was an Environmental Protection Agency fellow from 2000 to 2002 and is an assistant professor of social science at Roosevelt University.
