Sourcing recycled keel

During the Covid confinement, I built myself a 22’ daysailer based on Joel White’s Fox Island Class design.

The design called for a 950 lb. lead fin keel. I had no interest in the aggravation, danger or cost of casting a keel or paying someone to do so. Instead, I recycled the keel of a J/24 that was being scrapped.
It all worked out fine.

I’m now thinking of building another, bigger, boat, recycling the keel of some other boat.
Here’s my question. How do I, in some systematic way, source a lead keel of roughly 2500 lbs and tolerable design for its scrap value?
