    probably the best feature of this site id finding whose working around you and what they do and specialize in. soon u got a whole local group of scrappers who all are out to get money but can scratch each others backs when stuff comes up. If you found the site your already ahead of the game. Welcome

    Welcome ruben23 , I am just over the MA border from RI and focus mainly on computer scrap. I would be interested in sharing info on what yards you use for your scrap. I use Electronix Redux in Norfolk, MA for my computer waste, but really need to find a good yard for my aluminum and copper. I have gone to Schnitzer (formerly State-Line Scrap) in Attleboro, but have not been to happy dealing with them.

    Glad you found the board.

    i'm studying business entrepreneurship at BCC. The main yard i use is A and E metals in wesport mass. they are great over there, i am not sure how there prices compare to other yard because the only other one i have been to is mid city scrap who i avoid like the plague.
