What is stainless steel scrap price in your area ?

I don't do much scrapping of metal, but I could be interested in it if copper or stainless steel.

What are prices like in your area? I would guess it varies from state to state or even localities.

Thanks for that info. I posted about a stainless steel shell over a outdoor light timer that I got and one of the guys said the stainless could be worth as much as $15. I found that hard to beleive for the small quantity. The whole thing weights maybe 25 pounds but 23 pounds of that is transformer, etc.  That would make the thing worth $1 if broken out. Hardly worth the effort involved. 

Will wait for some other responses.
