    Yankton said. “ We will accept white goods, but not pay for them. Anything with an intact compressor (ac units, fridges,freezers) will be refused.
    I didn’t ask why Sioux Falls said $1/ton for white goods. I laughed and he laughed. Their ferrous prices are always low. The only thing we have ever sold to them is non-ferrous and only when we have a back haul for the truck.
    Both Yankton and Sioux Falls are owned by the Sioux City yard. Both feed the Sioux City Texas shredder.

    I am afraid we will all be seeing lower prices for scrap metals for awhile... China no longer buying is just the beginning. If the green recycling movement stops, businesses will no longer feel pushed to be green. Cheaper to use new material than recycled and no public outcry the company will no longer be forced to recycle. Most plastic recycling costs more than to just landfill the stuff. Waste to energy seems like it is looking more possible as regulations are softening and more and more trash is being produced.

    Labor costs, shipping logistics and many more factors as well. Cheaper made appliances made with less metal equals less good stuff in the shred and more trash to dispose of.....

    The company i work for phased out cardboard recycling last year. We were taking an awful beating with it. Best guess is that we were spending 20 dollars in labor to get one dollar back on the sale of cardboard.

    Green is all good and well but it has to be self sustaining from a money point of view.

    Ewaste appears to be taking a beating here. It was subsidized by state government for a number of years. The idea was that you document the piece of electronic gear and then bill the state for reasonable disposal cost. In turn ... the state bills the manufacturer for an end of life fee.

    Yeah ... it's not to hard to imagine how that all worked out.

    The state pulled a Sneaky Pete and changed the law last year. They made the recycler responsible for billing the manufacturer an end of life fee directly. The Ewaste company that did a great job of servicing this area of the state withdrew shortly after the change in the law and we were more or less left to figure it out for ourselves.

    We do have a new waste to energy plant in the works.It was scheduled for completion sometime this summer so it may already be on-line by now.

    There's a fairly good article on what we have, and what we're transitioning to here.

    I have a couple of water heaters on the pickup I'ma take in tomorrow and see what I get. It's found money, but at some point it really isn't worth it.

    The tin would have got you $7.25 at Atlas in my area - it's actually $25 per ton or .0125 cents per lb. not $20 per ton - well it was as of a few days ago.

    Just got my check in from the last dumpster of steel. Prices are looking to hold steady at $45/ton. I never thought the day would come where less than 3 cents a pound was a good price. Oh well, on to the next load!
