Default Recycling/crushing a boat hull costs

I'm not recycling a hull but reading the many threads where people part out boats I've always wondered what's the cost to get rid of a stripped hull at a recycling facility ?
Do metal fuel tanks need to be removed or are they seperated during the crushing operation ?

Depends, if you take it to a dump around here they charge by the ton and they make you remove the gas tank.

Sawazall and set it out for the trash guy in Florida. Took about 4 weeks for a 30 foot cruiser in Florida but they will take anything you drag to the curb here
