Pick up price at the Jeddo Mine, just outside Hazleton PA, is $126/ton. You can pick up as little or as much as you want. I have been picking up in half ton increments. Delivery price around me (Stroudsburg, PA) is $186/ton 2 ton minimum.

I probably ought to keep my mouth shut, or at least, my fingers off the keyboard I "mine" Craigslist for coal and oil. Last summer I picked up what I estimate to be eight tons of stove and nut anthracite coal. This came from three houses. The only cost was my time and fuel for my one-ton dump truck. There has to be thousands of tons in some of the older housing stock along the Atlantic states.

This was an offshoot from seeing my first ad for free oil last June. Since then I have picked up 3200 gallons of #2 oil and removed 26 tanks. Since October, I pay $1.00/gal but charge for the tank removal. It usually takes about three hours to pump and rig out a tank. In some cases, the homeowner helps with the rigging and that speeds things up.

I have also gotten 200 lbs of propane, 2 modern Haas and Sohn coal stoves (1 brand new), seven barrels of sealed Mobil lubricating oil, and 600 gallons of used refrigeration oil. I sold the Mobil oil the same day and will burn the refer oil in my Diesel vehicles at around 25%.

This is only an option for those who don't mind working hard and have a truck. The free coal offers have dried up during the winter but I expect they will pick up in the late spring. I am currently looking for a conveyor to help with the coal removals. I think I could be proactive in this coal removal business by contacting real estate brokers. All three of my sources came from houses that recently changed owners.

And by the way, two days before Christmas, I sold a lump of coal for $5.00 to a fellow who placed a wanted ad in Craigslist.

I picked up some coal yesterday. It went up $7.00 a ton in the last 2 weeks. It's now $206. per ton.That's still not too bad. Since I bought it here in Cayuga Co. there is a 4% tax on heating fuels.

Worth it I guess but that's a lot of work moving coal by hand with buckets. Using two 5 gallon buckets it's like 25 trips+ per ton. Lot of work, I know as we had one customer that paid dearly for that service to get it into his house. Moving 3 tons up a long graded yard, up some steps, through the entire house was no picnic. The house sat on steep incline, the front was street level but you had to go up steps to get into basement in the back.

No sales tax on coal in PA, there is taxes already included like you have for gas but that's applied to every ton coal.

A long, log time ago when coal was $8 a ton, the additional cost was $0.25 a ton to have it bag delivered. The same coal lift truck made the delivery but it was bagged at the curb, carried in and emptied. I can only remember my parents buying it bag delivery once. I guess it was too expensive.
