Made two runs to the scrap yard and dumped 720 lbs of metal. How the heck did I accumulate so much? :shock:

With the price of scrap steel below $100- a ton, it just accumulates.

Metal detecting, I frequently find pieces of machinery, big nuts, bolts, and other scrap metal. I add that to the acreage scrap pile.

Probably have several tons of assorted steel on an acreage concrete pad. Loading up, and then with a 60 - 70 mile round trip to the scrap yard, it's not worth it.

Besides that, if we need metal for a project, scrap pile search.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Not worth your time to haul it, but it sure comes close to being justified not to have it in the way! :lol:

I have a disabled fellow, who stops in occasionally, and I give him my scrap metal. Works out well, I get rid of it and he get's a little spending money. He'll take about anything, even the stuff I can't figure out how to dispose of. Like Stanton said, it's not worth my trouble and I avoid the flat tires that often happen at the scrap yard.
