Default Scrap Steel, Iron, Brass and Aluminum Recycling

My business generate a lot of scrap steel, iron, brass and aluminum. I hauled three loads recently and made over $3000.00. Mixed steel is about $250.00 or so a ton and brass is $2.00 ish a pound.

Used to be called a junky for hauling but now it's "recycling" and totally in vogue.

Maybe I should write a new song, I was a junky when junking wasn't cool.
Wake up and smell the Fool-Aid.
