    Odd items scrapping

    A little while ago I had submitted the possibility of a sub forum here for listing items that some yards pay for that we would not normally think about attempting to scrap, or thought it would be nice to scrap but do not know of any place to take it. In case it does not happen, I would like to start a new thread for the same purpose. This could give folks other ideas of items to start hoarding.

    The trick now is getting all my cardboard from Portland, ME to Portland, OR.
    People may laugh at me, but that's ok. I laugh all the way to the bank.

    Greenblott's recycling in Binghamton, NY

    -Refundable aluminum cans for $.06 each ($.06 1/2 if you want to cut out a coupon from the local paper)

    -Pays #1 price for #2 copper if it's mixed in with #1

    -Puts a coupon in the local paper for 10% added to your total
    There's nothing more fun and more effective than hitting something repeatedly with a sledgehammer

    Do they pay a good price? Most places I've been to take printed circuit boards as mixed metal.

    keep in mind, I am in Canada, so lower prices... last load I took in was 311 pounds... I have a couple of washing machine shells as bins.... I got $46.65.............. I don't mind holding on to some stuff for a while as I have one of those 10x20 carport tents for storage
