    You might want to check that battery price. I've never heard of anywhere that cheap. Works out to 0.028/lb. As a middleman, I pay 0.12/lb.
    People may laugh at me, but that's ok. I laugh all the way to the bank.

    That is a really good price. With my sign in the yard, I usually end up with 2 or 3 a week, and I don't have to go get them, they come to me,,, lol

    The only other place I know to drop off batteries gives $2.00 for car batteries so I'm not sure if its just like that in my area or what.

    Escrap where are you located? It must be a regional thing. Batteries around here go for .20-.23/lb.

    And Mick is getting .14 I think the last time he posted. Might be worth it to transport a load down for .10-12 more a lb.

    Interstate Battery in Boise is paying $12 per battery. I need to weigh a few of mine and see what that comes out to.

    So only about 900 miles from me. Definitely a different regional scrap market.
