    Hi Martin,
    We cut them up with the oil in them. After the winding core is pulled, we dump out the oil in a bucket under the cutting table. The pan under the saw is to catch copper dust.

    I get 50 cents a pound for 410, but I have to send 400 pounds of either R22 or R12 to get that. Those are some pretty big units to have that much 410 in them.
