    I try to do my civil duty by using my assigned city recycling bins separating the news papers from the glass, the plastics, and the tin cans.

    What happens to a piece of metal like an old carburetor that's not allowed to be recycled? What are the chances of it making its way to the scrap metal yard?

    Texas, unfortunately.
    Good. Most garbage companies won't pay to have the thing buried, so they send it to a scrap yard.
