Come on Copper, you're KILLING ME!  Prices keep going down.  Is anyone hoarding until it bounces back?

Scrapping Questions  - 
 
Is anyone shipping their e-waste off to buyers?  I don't have a local yard that will take circuit boards or other general e-waste for  anything more than shred.

I'm going to try it for the first time and I'm curious if others have had any success.

My major question at this point is shipping cost.  I know there is a weight (70 lbs, i think) and a box dimension (I'm not sure what that is) that increases shipping costs dramatically.  I want to make sure that I am below those numbers when I send stuff out.

Any insight would be helpful. 

I'll be sure to post the results when I have them.

Would you be interested in giving us a price list of what you buy?  Do you do toll refining?

Not too bad on the prices, there about the same as we get in South Florida.

Borrowed a truck and took a load in this weekend (big for me because I'm a small time, part timer without a truck).  500 lbs of steel, 40 lbs of stripped #2, 119 lbs of #2 insulated, and a bit of aluminum and copper piping.  It was a long time accumulating this for me but it was a good payday.  Now I have more room for more junk!

I got a talking too from my wife this weekend for my out of control scrap piles.  Does anyone hold onto certain metals or do you just dump them as soon as you get them?  I might be a scrap hoarder.

Right now I'm holding most of my non-ferrous metals until prices go back up. Steel takes up too much room for me to hoard, but sadly It's going for $30.00 per ton right now.

This is awesome and should be reproduced in as many places as possible.

It's nice that this forum has become an A&R Metal Recycling advertising page.

Do you know of any other groups where the actual scrappers share things and have conversations?

Rehabing my kitchen means the old appliances go to the scrap yard.  Pretty small load but $62.28 in cash is nice.
Steel: 0.08/lbs
Insulated Communication Wire: 0.90/lbs
Stainless Steel: 0.45/lbs

Ron, I am well aware of that. But with a kitchen in disrepair and three young children I have neither the time or space to try and sell 15 year old appliances.

Made a new contact today.  Answered a craigslist ad for a free computer monitor at a business.  Told them I take all sorts of e-waste if the had some stuff to get rid of.  They told me they were going to throw out a fax machine and I could have that too.  When I went to pick it up, an extra keyboard came too and they asked me for my phone number because there were 3 desktops and a server they were looking to get rid of soon once the data was wiped.

Since I'm a small time, part timer scrapping out of a Hyundai Elantra this was a pretty good deal for me.

That's how it's done. I had some cards printed ( 3 1/2 x 8) on card stock, with things I look for to scrap. I post them on bulletin boards and give them to Craigslist contacts. It brings in quite a bit of scrap. One card got me 3 calls to a law office for E- waste, got about a 1/2 truckload.

Found this guy a few months ago.  It weighed about 40 lbs.  It was broken, so I took it apart.  A bunch of wire, aluminum and steel

Pleasant Plains is a hidden gem! The teachers, administrators, and staff are wonderful. We couldn't be happier with the experience we have had in our first year. Thank you to everyone there for all their hard work.

This was never a very good store. Then it burned. Has been closed for months. No sign of it opening again any time soon.
