I'm seeing prices drop on several commodities. The main reason is the shipping lines that take the stuff to China are trying to raise their rates.

If your percentages are low.. just sort more. If your percentages are high.. just sort more.

I cashed in a few bags of cans and about 30lbs of extruded aluminum and about 100lbs of steel. Didn't weight the cans, and didn't ask what the price was, but I got 28 bucks, which was more than expected. I go to this guy all the time and I trust them so I don't bother weighing it all up.

I went to a yardsale and found 2 big brass candlesticks. I am 6'1 and one was up to my hip and one was over my knee. She wanted $20 for both but I talked her down to $10. I took one apart and turned it in and got $14 just for the one up to my hip. Still have to turn in the other one.

Also turned in the contents of a bucket I bought at a church yardsale. There were a bunch of little copper pipes in the bottom along with a sledge hammer. Got $5 for the copper paid $2 for the bucket.

50 lbs aluminum cans @ $.40/lb $20
18 lbs copper (various scrap) @ $2.00/lb $36

Total: $56.00

I was kind of inappropriate languageed though. I called the place and they said they were buying stripped wires at $2.30/lb, and other copper at $2.20/lb. I shouldn't worry about an extra $3.60, but it's the principle damn it!!

Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.

Hate to see a yard not pay what they quote. Maybe that price was for 100 pound minimum.

I should've said something, but it was my first time. Beginner's anxiety I guess. :P

Besides I left my other aluminium at home because they only offered $0.50 for extruded & $0.30 for cast aluminium. I will wait & hold what I have & see if the price gets any better in 2010.
