    Moved to rochester indiana went to scrap yard got these prices.

    Hi been a while. Moved to rochester indiana thought id have more clients nothing so far=(. Took in my scrsp i saved up from when we moved. Copper was good 2$ insulated wires still number 3 even extension cords considered 3 instead of 2 so i strip them even though 100ft cord of 16 gauge is only a lb ends up being 300 if you count all the wires. Beats getting .75c vs 2.20 for bb. Good news they take circut boards yay. .10c a lb though is that good or bad?

    10 cents a pound is not a good price.

    Congrats on the move. Hope the new local works out great for you. Like Jim said you should be getting substantially more for *any* circuit board except maybe trim boards and heavy iron boards. The very low end otherwise should start around .20/lb and go up quickly from there

    Oh wow thanks. So im getting ripped wow. Not that i do alot of things with boards anyway tho. At least i can get rid of them in a good way instead of putting them in the recycle.

    You may or may not be getting ripped off but you could be getting more for them. A lot of yards still buy and sell circuit boards generally as low grade copper breakage. So what they're paying you may well be proportionate to what they sell for.
