I took about 300kg of what is locally referred to as light iron in this
morning - covers just about anything that has meetal on it - office
chairs, printers, keyboards, filing cabinets, cars etc. The load I took
in was the stuff that is left over having stripped all the easily
accessable non ferrous material and as such is little more than rubbish
I didn't expect to get much for it a couple of quid for the diesel was
all I hoped for. There was a notice up in the office window informing
customers that ferrous scrap would no longer be paid for - ie they will
take it but won't be paying for it.
Non ferrous prices this morning
(they were still using Friday afternoons prices - hadn't received the
Monday morning list)
They reckoned that every load leaving the yard to go to their recycling
facility was still losing them money.
I suspect that things are going to get worse. Get ready to see the
reappearance of dead cars in laybys etc :o(
