you wont get anything for scrap, and they might not even accept them with Freon inside.

put up on craigslist for $25 each or donate them.

IF there is copper inside, mine is aluminum.

still, not enough there to be worth hassling. Curb it and let the scrappers who do truck-loads at a time mess with it.

Could be a good item for a small workshed or a garage or camper or something.
If not I agree with groo. You may even get more fulfillment out of donating it than selling it.

Most older window AC units have 2 coils. One is all aluminum and one is copper tubing and aluminum fins. I scrapped several from some of my rental houses last year. IIRC we got about $15 to $18 for each set of 2 coils. Housings went to one of my workers. At $200 - $300/ton, I don't have a big enough truck or enough time to mess with that type of scrap.

Set them on the curb, in the evening, with a sign for $50 each. They will be gone by morning!
