The day before I came in I was told they would pay $150 a ton which is .75 a pound. I told the man what kind of metal I had. They actually paid about $20 for 300 pounds. Good for some quick small amounts of cash, but don't expect .75 a pound or $150 a ton. The process is simple and quick. Weigh your vehicle. Dump metal items. Weigh vehicle again. Go in office to receive payment.
