I would like to know if Boardsort buy Tantalum Capacitors? I would like to know what type are you looking for. I know the small yellow boxes are one of them. What about the other types? Is anything in the picture worth anything to you. Which ones are Tantalum Capacitors? I have come across this and somewhat using this as an ID guide.

None of those are tantalum. The only thing I wouldn't call trash is the type in the top right because your local scrapyard will accept those as a form of brass or copper. Grading varries at each yard. Boardsort has stated in previous responses to this question that they do not typically buy them unless brought into the facility because misidentifiacation is so frequent.

I agree the top right corner (Voltage Regulators) can be sold to the scrap yard for copper, brass or copper bearing.

The top left corner (green and red rectangular capacitors) can sometimes be sold as dirty aluminium.
