    I haven't bothered to fire up my truck at least not to pickup any metal at these prices.



    It's not worth it to me to pickup anything unless it's something on the street where I live, or things being disposed of at work. If I didn't live within 2 miles of a yard I wouldn't even collect on my own street.

    I just hauled in a trailer load of iron (shred) in Houston. $0.03 a pound. 3,540 # = $106.20. That is the lowest I have seen since I have been hauling in scrap metal (started in 2006).

    I had wondered how that would work for you, if you were doing a clean out and there was lots of metal if and how it could effect the price you charge. I would think you could get enough scrap metal to cover dump fees when prices were higher...

    It did affect prices in the past.........When metal was at an all time high we would factor the value of the metal into the bid and possibly give a discount on trash based on volume of metal..........I don't really haul much straight trash anymore........I try to concentrate on metal only but at these prices I have to charge minimum of $25 to all residential customers just to cover gas and basic expenses...........We still remove all electronics for free and even pay a small fee if they have enough of something that we want..........Each individual call is different but the normal homeowner who calls needing to get rid of an old fridge gets charged every time now
