Scrapyard local to me is an Amish place in Middlefield, OH called Honest Scales.
Scrap steel is currently $.08/lb and aluminum is $.45/lb.
Last summer I cleaned out the back of our property and came up with 1700 lbs of scrap. :mad2:

I try not to scrap much because it is very easy for me to come home with a new found jewel that I didn't even know
I needed..Scrap yards can be marvelous places to go shopping.I have even forced myself to take the VW so I won't be too tempted.I have also had that theory backfire on me and have gone home for the truck on several occasions however.Haven't been in a while and today promises nice weather,hmmmm.

I find it is worth the time to separate metals from other stuff and take it in occasionally when I accumlate enough. Relatives give me small amounts of scrap they don't want to bother with. This year with the house teardown is a record year. I am approaching $1,000 cash for scrap. It helps cover gasoline and other pocket expenses. It is no wonder there are so many scrap theives out there.

Lots of old ranges are set up to use Kero. When we convert them back to wood or coal, we remove the old kero burners and the old copper lines. The copper lines go into a wood barrel. Last week the barrel went to the scrap yard. $499.70 for wood barrel that two of us easily put in the truck. Love it!!!
