Scrap metal collectors

I'm not a junk collector just wondering who's going to cash in on all that metal.

On LBI the towns are taking all the metal collecting it and taking it and cashing it.They were vehicles leaving the island to make sure no on was visiting and taking any out with them. I think you could take your own but most are just putting them out for trash.

I hear some towns have the residents making signs to put on garbage piles saying don't take my garbage.
In some cases, the insurance company tells them not to throw anything out until an adjuster shows up, so I have seen "Do not take, waiting for insurance" signs on those piles.
My adjuster said to take pictures and toss things out (with the exception to save a piece of any rugs I needed to remove).

I watched a pick up on my street the other morning come by and pick up some appliances. I tossed my cast iron boiler on the curb...probably weighed over 200 with the the burners and circ pump. I'm not going to break my back for pennies...there is money to be made collecting trash...if you don't care that the neighbors see you as a garbage picker. I'm tossing everything except for copper. Seemed like the same bulk cleanup crew brought their trucks in to collect the appliances..
I scrapped metal for a good year and made a living doing it. I used to remove boilers out of apartment buildings in Newark and whatever other metals i could find in those basements. If your willing to get your hands dirty and do some heavy lifting, there's PLENTY of money to be made. $1000 days were not uncommon (split 2 ways). I could understand a home owner throwing away a small boiler or water heater because honestly it wouldn't be worth it to bring just that to the scrap yard. Think about it, if there wasn't money to be made in the scrap business, there wouldn't be scrap yards all over the place and you wouldn't see the guys with pickup trucks filled with scrap all over.
