I have made alot of new friends over the last several years. One group of them has been men that drive around in trucks seeking metal for recycle. There is a whole group of these guys. This is how they make their living. They are some of the nicest people I have met.
I cant tell you how many times I have flagged them down to pull out of stove or old washing machine out of a basement. You can see the excitement in their eyes. Most recently, I met Francisco who cared out an old TV of my basement in exchange for a bunch of metal the contractor left (8 years ago). He couldnt have been more helpful and appreciative.
So if you have metal waste, be sure and park it curb side. These guys have regular driving routes they follow each day.
