    Every yard I've tried to sell copper/brass wire ends at has happily bought them as low grade copper or brass breakage. It's not a lot but should be at least twice shred price. Don't expect a lot more...

    Dunno exactly what you mean by clean copper wire. Do you mean bare bright scrap? Bare bright unused production scrap? Post-chopper/granulator Cu #1 or #2 slivers/pellets? Your best bet is going to be...

    Starters, alternators and AC compressors can be sold to just about any core buyer. With aluminum being so low right now it's almost a guarantee that even a low price core buyer will be higher than...

    If you make .15-.25 profits on aluminum, .20-.45 on copper and brass and so on it's very plausible to run a low profit on iron. In Patriot's math at a lot of smaller yards that would cover payroll...

    Depends on whether they have usable parts and what kind of $/lb you can get for towers near you and how much they've been stripped already. My general rule of thumb is if I can a decent approximation...
