    Hey there scrappers. I am located in Monterey California , I am somewhat new to the scrapping world , I started scrapping during the pandemic, so Iíve been at it for a little over a year now. I have a good scrap yard I go to for all my scrap metal. However Iíve not once sold all my PCBís that I have . I have a fairly large amount of boards , including a large collection of gold plated boards. If anyone can recommend the best buyer of PCBís I would very much appreciate it. Iíve researched quite a bit of different companies that buy , but I havenít gone thru with selling them yet due to being unsure .Any feedback I welcome.

    Small world I grew up in the Monterey area! Born at the County hospital lived in Salinas and Prundale until I was a teenager. I am sure with all the Tech coming out of silicon valley there are PCB recyclers in the area. If you can't find an actual scrap yard to buy them see if one of the other recyclers will buy them. At one point for about a year I was selling to another recycler that had chinese buyers. He would pay me not much under what he was getting just to pad his loads and make them happy by getting more product.

    Hi, Iíve checked out your webpage before you even responded to my post. I just didnít see anywhere itís posted that I can ship to you. I did see pick up , but that was only i your state . I may have just missed where it was mentioned. Is that an option to ship ?

    Hi and welcome to the forum from Las Vegas! If you check the Buyer/Seller section of the forum you can find a lot of circuit board buyers including myself! You've got responses already from great folks in this thread so hopefully you're covered already. But if not check that section and you can find pricing from lots of buyers.

    Members often post what they get for shred and may even comment on which yards are trustworthy.

    It could be perceived that I'm trolling in truth would like our newest member to have a profitable sale and not one that would discourage him from continuing the trade.
