Default What are the best things to recycle for money?

Just as the title states. I know copper is worth quite a bit, but what kind of every day things contain copper? What types bring the most money? What about house wiring, getting it and burning the plastic off. What about batteries, how much do they normally bring? Old radiators, aluminum wheels. These are some things that I can come up with...
I'm just wondering what people are recycling for the money?

Also, anyone have any experience with cutting of cat converters? What types bring the most money, I heard toyota tacomas are worth quite alot.

If you can find a shady recycler get a trailer and steal a shitload of milk crates repeatedly. They're expensive. You'll make bank.

Copper is the most expensive acquirable metal. Again with the shady recycler you can steal ladders, metal fencing, other aluminum or steel shit.

What do you mean milk crates? Are you talking about those small cubes they're made of fiberglass I think. Like 18"x18" and they stack together perfectly, kinda snapping into place?

Yes those are worth mad money. They aren't made of fiberglass though. The older ones are some sort of nylon which is more expensive, but the newer ones are worth alot too they are just an industrial plastic. Soft drink pallets and bottle transporters are the same material and usually more dense/less bulky

Wow man, I never knew that about milk crates or drink crates. I've got access to tons of those for real! Do you know what they're going for?

And getting ladders is a good idea but don't you think the dude at the scrapyard is gunna look at you kinda funny when you bring a perfectly good ladder in to scrap?

Thanks for the input guys, keep em coming!

Break into a foreclosed home and steal all the copper pipe. Just make sure you shut off the gas. Some asshat scrapper blew up a vacant house in Cleveland by removing copper gas pipe.

EDIT

These are very valuable as well...

I see alot of metal threads popping up. I'll just post this. These go for a pretty penny.

http://www.ehow.com/how_4593684_remo...converter.html


Due to the external location and the use of valuable precious metals including platinum, palladium, and rhodium, converters are a target for thieves. The problem is especially common among late-model Toyota trucks and SUVs, due to their high ground clearance and easily-removed bolt-on catalytic converters. Welded-in converters are also at risk of theft from SUVs and trucks, as they can be easily removed.[16][17] Theft removal of the converter can often inadvertently damage the car’s wiring or fuel line resulting in dangerous consequences. Rises in metal costs in the United States during recent years have led to a large increase in theft incidents of the converter,[18] which can then cost as much as $1000 to replace

yea, on my first trip on the 'grey goose' I heard this dude talkin about stealing road signs and scrapping them. I guess you would burn the paint off and then just smash it into a ball, as flat as you can with a hammer.

The intact ladder would probably fetch more than what it would by scraping it...if you still want to sell a ladder to a scrapper I'd cut it into pieces first or put a big ass twist in it and say a fat ass climbed it.

Copper is only worth $9000 a ton (1000 kilograms) - I stripped about 9 computer Power Supply Units and only got 1/5 of one kilogram (200 grams) worth less than $2.

You could be a bum and collect cans...

I just a news story about a thief that targeted a tanning salon and got about $10,000 worth of copper. It seems that because they use so much power the wires are huge. Anyways, he shut off the power, cut on end with bolt cutters, climbed onto the roof and cut the other end, then tied one end to his car and drove off, which pulled it all out.

This should be so fucking easy.

alright heres my two cents. any large truck under a 1 ton is going to have a fatty converter on it, the ford f250s that are made in the late 80s early 90s have a huge four chamber one that will go for 300 if you find a shady scrapyard, steel manhole covers will go for 50-60 each. the aluminum rims that people put on trucks will go for 20-30 each for scrap or you can throw that shit up on creigslist and sell the whole set for like 200. if there is a local moving truck rental place go and check under the trucks for converters, if they have one then it will go for 500 min but you gota cut it off with a hacksaw and it takes forever and its noisy as all shit.
