    What to do with old rotors?

    I just did a rear brake refresh on my 2010 Boxster Base. I now have all four old rotors (did the fronts last year) sitting in my garage. They really aren't taking up a lot of room, but I'd still like to get rid of them. There's a lot of iron in these things, so I'm reluctant to just drop them in our recycling can. Does anyone know if any auto parts stores take old rotors and pass them on to the proper recycling?

    Thanks,

    Mike

    I've dropped mine off at AutoZone. No problem.

    Just a guess, I have no experience with this but maybe a local scrapyard/metal recycler - you may even get money for them.

    +1 I dropped mine off and a bunch of other metal at my local metal recycler, they pay by the pound....it only comes out to a few bucks but better than me having to pay someone.
