Cash value of the shelves as shelves or scrap metal? Scrap is worth almost nothing, maybe $20-$30/ton. Those would have to be some pretty heavy shelves to be worth even $1. Not even worth the fuel to take them to the recyclers unless you have a LOT more or have some copper.DS3 told DH that he wanted the old metal shelves that we removed from the rented Connex which we were planning to sell for metal. He is paying us the cash value.
Yep, the "He is paying us the cash value." sentence immediately followed the shelves topic and immediately preceded the "which kid is buying their insurance" topic. You can see why my feeble mind didn't keep up!Something must have been left out of my post.
Um, copper yes, aluminum isn't worth the time to sort it out from the regular scrap metal. I took a bunch of metal in April, 2,200 pounds mostly regular scrap metal but also a decent amount of copper and aluminum. I'd been saving out the aluminum cat food cans from the others as well as the non deposit aluminum soda & tea cans, had a BIG box worth almost nothing. The only reason the metal fins I took off the copper pipe was worth anything is because "clean" copper is worth a fair bit more than "dirty" so removing them made the pipe worth more.Yes, the price of junk metal is very low unless it is copper or aluminum.
