Just curious what scrap cast iron goes for? We are gutting an apartment complex and we have about 80 cast iron tubs! They are about 300-400 pounds a piece I think.

Here it sucks.
Local place's current price is 2 cents/pound. Another, farther away, is 4 cent.
There is one that will jus TAKE it and one tha will actually charge you. Tho they will send out a dumpster for you to fill on our own free of charge.

Figure 80 even at 400lbs/ea @ .04/lb is $1280.

My lazy ass would unhook them and call a scrapper to haul from each unit.
Figure gas alone will take a good chunk of money. Then time and the labour to move....?

Make some scrapper do all the lifting! ;)

Wish you were closer, we're getting 11 1/2 cents a pound now......80 of those would be a fair chunk of change!

I'll have to check them out. I thought they just took cars. They take anything? Even down to aluminum cans?
Looked at website but they don't list prices or what they take besides cars. Just that they are ferrous and non-ferrous processors.

I understand the need for ID to recycle these days due to all the theft but still sucks.
Wait 10-14 days to get paid? And if they think it's stolen they don't pay and keep it and YOU have to prove its not stolen? How they hell do I prove something isn't stolen?

If you have a business license and register with them, then you get paid immediately and don't have to wait.  Scrapping is a nice little side job....did almost 20K with them last year!

They take refrigerators (but the refrigerant is supposed to be professionally removed first), electric motors, aluminum, stainless, cars, appliances, cast, etc.  Just about anything but gold and silver......gotta go to Pacific Iron and Metal in Seattle for that.....
