    Best yard I have ever used! I love there computer system, makes going to the yard much less of a hassle and they are polite.

    Picking seems pretty slim these days!

    Hello and wellcome to the forum. I'm just east of hudson, off shaddy hills rd. I just moved here from st. petersburg last summer. Still use the yards down thiere but gas is getting to high to keep driving down thiere. If you don't mind me asking where is one steel? Shore would like to find a yard with prices as good as in st. pete.

    Happy I mentioned it in another thread, but One Steel is on Hicks Rd.
    It just changed hands not to long ago, it is top notch as far as being professional goes! (Hopefully making brownie point here!)
    I remember when it was Bill's Place, that was years ago!

    St. Pete is a long ride unless you have a good amount! Are they paying that much better?

    Sasquatch; I like that better! I take it you are of a smaller frame type fella... Lol
    I have been looking to network a little as far as ewaste goes. There is a market here but will take much work to exercise it proper.
