    Yeah, I did, but wanted to compare and make sure I wasn't getting ripped off.

    No real way to do that, unless you call the yards around you. If a member here lives even 1 state away from you, and they say they are getting paid x per pound, it might be higher or lower than you. Doesn't mean you are getting ripped off. Just how their yard is paying.

    I know here, the yard I go to, is the BIGGEST yard around. All the smaller yards sell directly to them.

    Your welcome. I would definitely contact all the yards. Stainless is non ferrous as you know, so even another yard could have a better price.

    Stainless is an alloy made up of both ferrous and non ferrous.

    This place is out of Detroit so keep that in mind, but their website might have the prices your looking for, for comparison only.

    I just looked at the spec sheet for 18 SR stainless and the nickel content is near zero. It is a ferritic stainless steel and magnetic.

    At the scrap yard I use 18 SR stainless would just go for the light iron price.

    I was hoping you would tell us what the price was that you were quoted although i know its none of our business but then again, it is our business if its on this forum.

    I just called one of the larger yards in my area (CMC) since seems most of the other yards follow them. Got the following info for GA.

    #2 copper - 2.77 / lb
    Shred - 12.50 (should be 100#)
    Stainless - .50 / lb
