Unhappy scrap prices

Scrap prices are getting so low it's a judgment call to do anymore...I guess because you don't have to pay to get rid of it, and if it makes time sense. Or does a guy stockpile? (if you have the means)

Around here the more tons you have the more money you get

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

Dump here takes scrap iron for free. Last load my cheap help hauled in was a penny a pound. Easier to haul it to the landfill and less chance of getting a flat..................

Penny a pound here too

Take it to the dump, $50 a ton in fees.
They get the scrap to sell.
I don't think so

Yeah, no charge to dump scrap at the landfill here. 12 bucks my cheap help got at the scrap yard didn't even pay for his flat tire repair. Not worth it. I'll haul it to the dump.
