Trip to the scrap yard

Comments Off

[Today’s run: 5.75 miles]

I have today off for President’s Day!

So I determined this was a good time to take my scrap metal to the scrap yard.  This is stuff that I’ve been taking apart from my pallet load of electronics and laboratory items I purchased from Tuscaloosa a couple of weeks ago.

I had been dividing up the aluminum, brass/copper, stainless steel, etc.  And I’d been putting the screws/nuts/washers and connectors and such in my scrap bucket.  I’ve sold a few of the bits and pieces on ebay and I have a few things up there now.

I was very happy with the result of my trip to the scrap yard.  They weighed my sorted buckets and bins separately.  And then I drove the truck back into the big scrap yard (weigh-in/weigh-out) and unloaded the few items that were either boring steel or I just had not wanted to dig into.

(The lead-acid batteries were actually from another auction purchase; for a total of $35.75 for the Tuscaloosa pile.)
