    Thanks! I have a huge pile of shit that I need to take!

    In addition to that Im sure the scraggly tooth tweakers are going to be creating lots of work for us.

    BTW those dumb mother f****** have already stolen like 10 cats out of our vans. Even got the cats on the new truck that was inside our cage. Police say there is nothing that they can do because they cant id them.

    My last haul was about 200lbs clean bare wire, 400lbs clean copper, 400lbs dirty, 400 lbs insulated wire and about 120lbs in coils. All in all about $3k. Over a year to save up and cashed in to quick(around 2-3 months ago).

    I had 500 lb , but unfortunately a bunch of Evaps and Cond coils

    They only bring 1.30 lb

    Still have like 60 fans , but im deciding on whether or not taking them apart to rob the copper , because if you cut out the copper winding its 3.38 lb and if just the motor its 0.24

    BIG time !
    Actually you did pretty good if you got $ 1.30 with the end sheets.
    Here's the current scrap pricing.
    Clean Alum/Copper is at $ 1.50

    I have a rolling tote for coils and some brute cans on wheels for copper and wire. That trip had about 10 bags full of wire and copper. But 500kcml and 3/0 had a lot of weight to my clean bare wire weight and 1/0 was a pain to strip so it went to insulated thhn pile. I still toss out condenser coils, motors and compressors. Well we have a guy that comes and claims them.

    I just unloaded 142Lbs of #1 clean Bright copper @ $3.25/lb. Thats the going market price in Rochester. 18 months ago it was going for $1.96/lb

    Im going out to buy a new Stihl MS 150T c-e In-tree chain saw (one handed Limb saw = 5.7 pounds)

    I have 14" chop saw, I cut line sets up into 12" to 20" sections and put them in a 30gal drum.
