    I seen no one out yesterday. It was a bountiful day. Every vac, tv, fan, ect had cords still. I like when the locals stay home and eat cheeto's or what ever else they do.

    $85/ton Denver scrap metal recycling. Glad I had more than 200 lbs of ferrous. I couldn't resist picking up some metal yesterday morning after seeing ONE ad that remained un-answered for almost an hour for what looked like a small pile of aluminum turns out it filled my truck bed - small amount of ferrous but mostly aluminum.

    The guy was a plumber and threw in a 5 gallon bucket full of brass and copper, also threw in romex and other solid core copper wire - I still haven't sold the wire or stripped/sold the romex. That's what I got so far from making one stop.

    At this point steel should only be a by-product of dismantling scrap

    I get what you're saying, but every Wednesday morning I drive right past the scrapyard on the way to my route, so it's basically a free trip anyway.

    When my dryer quit I told it that it was going to the scrapyard if it wasn't a cheap fix. It's 20-something years old and I have another one at my MIL's house that I was going to Craigslist anyway.

    Dryer is loaded up along with a found water heater & a microwave & computer shells for tomorrow.

    I warned it!

    Wednesday I called the yard and was quoted low prices. I had a load so I hauled anyway. Yesterday the prices had dropped again.

    #1 prep iron - $105/ton
    # 1 unprep - $ 65/ton
    Cars $ 35/ton
    Appliances $ 10/ton

    Non ferrous dropped as well but since I am stockpiling that I did not bother getting prices. In the ten years of scrapping this is the lowest prices I have seen.
    Give back more to this world than we take.

    Was quoted $65/Ton for Appliances/Shred today. For that price I will hold it. They also offered $0.05 for electric motors. Called another yard and they offered $0.14. Called third yard and they offered $0.13, but asked me what my sell price was. I told them $0.15 and she made it happen. Thought I had 300#-500# range, turned out I had 1140#. Nice surprise since I cant move my shred right now.

    It has been a while since I posted one, but I got a ticket today. I passed a big pile of aluminum light lenses for the 2 x 2 and 2 x 4 drop ceiling lights. I also had some brass collected from garage sales and curbco and some from jobs. The only reason I went today was because my job for today cancelled. Oh well, money is money, and I got the job rescheduled for tomorrow. I was headed over to check if the woman was home and I passed a huge pile of debris. I thought I saw a faucet, and thought I needed to drive back by on the way home. Well, I went by and saw a couple sinks and some cast iron pipes and turned around to get the faucet. Ding! Ding! Ding! A cast iron sink, a SS sink, a bunch of 4" cast iron pipes, a hood fan, a DTV satellite dish still in the box. There was a copper vent pipe (yes, copper snap together venting pipe! 4 feet or so), a copper connection to the cast that was seated in lead to make the transition, a 4 x 4 sheet of SS, and a crapload of bed frames as well as some other fluff. Looks like I might be making another trip to the yard tomorrow.
