    Chicago & Burbs E-Scrap Guy

    I'm an E-Scrap guy located in the Chicago land area. I've been handling e-scrap for a few years now so although I'm not new to scrapping, I am new to the forum. I'm hoping to use the forum to learn more, bounce ideas around & share best practices. Below is a list of items I am familiar with and could share some insight to those who are interested. I'm especially interested in circuit boards and the different "grades" there are. Drop a line to say hello!

    Welcome to the forum. Do you buy these items? If you do how much do you pay for Ni-cd and Ni-md batteries?
