Seriously, if you have the ability to scrap your metals, do it! It’s easy income for a homesteader. We have recycling services that come to our property, but they get the benefits and the payouts for the metals they collect. And the sad thing is we have to PAY for them to pick up the metals they turn around and make money on. So scrap your metals yourselves! That is if you have the means to do so. My daughter and I started scrapping for fun when I came in to a bunch of spare copper.
Scrapping was one thing I liked to do to make easy money. Think it may be worth while to get back in to. This was a video of scrapping some BNC wire to get copper.
This was one of our small trips the scrap yard.
