after calling around, i found alter's was offering the most for copper wire. however, the quote i received over the phone, 15 minutes before i arrived, was not upheld. it was reduced by .10/lb. i realize metal prices fluctuate, but within 15 minutes? also, i had a small amount of aluminum wire and WHILE I WAS AT THE FACILITY, i was quoted .58/lb as i stood there!!! i was paid .48/lbdishonest people. and condescending, too!
