There are metal recycling options nearby, some that will even pay for metal if you have enough. We generally don't go through enough metal cans here to make that worth it though.
For other types of metal, we do so much rocket mass heater, and appropriate technology building with metal and welding that most shop metal scrap we keep for projects.
