None of the local scrap metal recyclers would accept it so ended up having to take our dead safe to the dump. Apparently, the concreate (and flame-proof materials) inside the walls makes separating the steel not worth the effort. I know I was not going through the trouble of removing whatever it was filled with. Especially since I still wasn’t certain that any place would accept it even after I did the work. I had to pay the minimum tipping fee. But, it was much better than leaving it sit around.
