    Score!

    I hadn't heard from my IT contact at an accounting firm in a while about any escrap to get rid of and I worried he'd maybe decided to do something with it himself. On a whim I gave him a call to see if he had anything he wanted to get rid of. On the phone he says, "I do have a little bit of stuff to get, I keep forgetting to call you about it." It turns out that his "little bit" was two pickup loads of towers, servers, phones, copiers, wire, hard drives, laptop cases, and a half dozen lcd monitors (which I got rid of for him as a favor, he gives me all the other stuff for free, I'm not gonna be stingy!)









    Bonus round, after I loaded up all this stuff, he called and asked me if I'd be interested in picking up BIGGER loads like this from their other offices scattered around the southeast part of the state. After tax season is over, I'm gonna be taking some day trips!

    Just a little bit?
    I give my contacts a call if I haven't heard from them in a while.
    They get busy just like everyone else and forget about everything that's piling up in the storage room or warehouse.
    Awesome.

    I'm so into scrapping.. When my Steel Toe Boots Wear out, I cut the Steel out of them and recycle the Toe!

    We purchase laptop computers and many components for greater than scrap value. We offer a shipping reimbursement program.replies

    Get to work! You'll need every minute that you can get when you're running all over the state!

    Great score- especially for a "small load"

    The whole mess took me about 9 hours to sort and breakdown... I LOVE my DeWalt impact, I don't even remember life without it!

    The pics are from my parents back yard. I'm away at school, but my Dad lets me use their place as a base camp for some of my adventures :-D
