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.

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.

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

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!

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

HI, I'm Joe

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.
