    I dot find E Bay a good medium to offer scrap

    Computer e waste I offered did not get bids.
    Posting a 25kg boiler through the mails is just kinda expensive.
    Offering a collect it service may be better but you run the risk of
    unsavoury characters turning up

    Major changes to the scrap business have taken out many of the "want to bee's". I suggest you look locally for buyers. By local I mean within your country or a nearby country. Save up enough material and package it to the specs required by your buyer.

    As an example I have always been a very small ewaste scraper. I learned to save up material and to separate it into like material making easier for my buyer to weigh and pay me. A pallet of material ships for far below what it costs to ship a 75 lb box per pound .

    I don't know which country you live in but searching for a big buyer is the very best answer meanwhile save up the ewaste.
