They called to me a couple years ago looking for scrap, I asked how much they would offer for lead. They said it depends on the quantity boss, have you much?The transit driving minority were around last week looking for scrap for the first time ever, offering €200 for scrap cars. I offered them a length of pipe with a trigger on the end and a cartridge inside. Don't think they were expecting that.
Id be wary saying or doing much to them. A lad my father knows well told them he didnt want their kind around his property. 2 days later his tractor stopped going down a main road acid in d back end and engine. Another man i knwo of his shed full of machinery went up in smoke 1 night after running them off his placeThe transit driving minority were around last week looking for scrap for the first time ever, offering €200 for scrap cars.

Oh ye are a funny bunch, there’s no doubt.
I could say that Fiats don’t go for scrap as rust prices are bad but that would be poor taste 😅
There’s a scrap pile here and I’d like to cash it in so we can make the next tractor repayment.
Got €140/ton today for light steel today.
Delivered it myself, its only two miles away so regular small deliveries.Your "Scrap " machinery would be better/ newer than the likes of what a lot of us work everyday .
Did you deliver that yourself, or was it collected from your yard?
If collected , they can tell you , that they are giving you €300 a ton because you won't have many tons , by their reckoning .
If a lad was to head off with a trailer of scrap , could it be classed as an essential journey? 🤔 . Wouldnt be much point if you got a heavy fine ..
Railway line was €2/ft as gateposts, the gates would probably sell for €5/ft or more and water troughs were around €1/gallon. Just as a guideline.€160-170/tn is a great motivator for getting rid of stuff. Had 8-10 old railwayline gate piers that were pulled up when we widened gaps etc over the years. Great weight in them.
Have 10-15 gates to sell too. Galvanize ones probably ranging from 10-17ft at a guess. No rungs missing. At least 3 big concrete water troughs too if any one is interested.
Must do a stocktake and put the whole lot on Donedeal.
I’ve bought and made piers in recent years, generally galvanize now.I just think it would be a shame to scrap them if they could be used again!
