Default what to do with old A/C compressor?

So my old A/C compressor finally bit the dust. It couldn't hold a vacuum. Got a new Nissens and it works great, but I don't know what to do with the old compressor.

Is there a place to sell it to? or for recycling? or is anyone interested in purchasing it? It's around 20 lb.

If the compressor just has a bad pressure valve (RCV), it would be worth something to a person willing to rebuild it. If the cylinders/pistons are worn out, it's junk for a metal recycler.
