    Yeah, totally agree guys. You can't pick and choose if you're providing a scrap removal service for a regular customer. You gotta take the good with the bad. That part of it wasn't clear.

    Around here ... you could chase steel if that was your specialty but it would be pretty hard to make a living at it.

    I just told one of my regulars (he contacted me) that I could pick up is stuff but I was perfectly honest with him and let him know very tactfully that this was pretty much a favor and that prices are critically low right now for metal. He insisted on paying me to come get his stuff. I guess the short time I have been doing this, I already built a stronger relationship with some of them than I thought.
