    Yes wood may be better now but plastic cardboard and glass sell well year round.
    A lot of my non metal selling is based on seasons right now it's wood wood wood and getting it "free" is helping the cause greatly
    acorns and apples do ok but it's all about the wood

    More places buying glass and plastic by me.
    Glass bottles and jars (4 places) .03 - .04 lb
    #1 plastic bottles (5 places) .30 - .45 lb
    #2 plastic clear (2 places) .08 - .10 lb
    #2 plastic color .02 lb
    Cardboard .02 lb

    And these are the places that pay .80 - .95 lb for alum cans!

    No luck yet for ABS plastic....

    Well my cardboard place stopped buying it. There is another place but they only pay .01 a pound for it. The only reason I was saving it was the place that payed .02 a pound had a good price for alum cans and I was going there anyway. Guess it will get dropped off to the city program. I only had about 200 lbs so whats that $4. Less stuff for me to keep around here!

    Wood is going to be on par with last year, I see no need for prices to go up.
    added this year. campfire wood $3 for 6-8 pieces bundled w/ kindiling, guys closer to campgrounds and in town are charging 4-5 bucks.... that's gotta be close to $1,000 a cord$$$$$
