    Had to clear some space so I sold about 5000 lbs of steel yesterday in for 2 cents a pound. Could have made an 80 mile round trip for a whopping 1/2 cent a pound more.

    Wow. That's AFTER the cleanup? What a hack job. Since you weren't awarded the original job, I would suggest that it is up to the property owner to make the next move.

    No one nearby and no ability to store up quantities that make transport feasible.
