    New question here. Disposing of old parts

    I just installed a new chain. After I was done, I looked at the greasy heap of metal at my feet and thought, "There has to be a better way of getting rid of this thing than dumping it in the trash." So, what do folks do with worn out bits? Will some metal recycler take my chain? How about all of those old tubes? Help a brother out.

    I put old parts (rims, chainrings, etc) out on the curb with the rest of the recycling (paper, glass, plastic, metal) every week. It is metal... of course it can be recycled. I realize not all cities have recycling programs for everything, but somebody will always take scrap metal. I'm not sure what to do about tubes though other than building slingshots or furniture.
