How much to recycle

I recycle my scrap copper, brass/bronze aluminum (other that cans) and scrap iron. My question is has anyone tried to recycle aluminum can slaw or screw tops. How about the twist off metal caps? Not too sure how the scrap yards would react to 100 lbs. of can slaw.

My guess would be they wouldn't be to happy with a mixture of metal, they like keeping aluminum separate from all the other metal because it paid different per pound. Can slaw would cost them to much to try to process, there set up to catch, weight and compress aluminum cans.
