    Re: Metal Prices

    I was talking to a fellow that said he took two #12 extension cords, each 100' long, to a local scrap yard. Still with all the insulation on them, he said they paid him just over $25.00. Can this be true?

    They would need to weigh about 12 lbs each at $1.05 a pound around here to make the quick $25.

    Re: Metal Prices

    Can't believe what I seen today. We had an ice storm in
    January or sometime last winter. Knocked over hundreds
    of powerline poles. A couple people have called and asked
    if they could have/buy the poles that fell over on my brother's
    360 acres so I talked to him and he said sell them and keep
    whatever you get. I went out and pulled all the poles away
    from the highway into a pile and will sell them. What I can't
    believe is the copper wires that were on them. The utility
    company never picked up the wires. Uncoated copper
    wires about 3/16th inch in diameter. 4000+ feet of it just
    laying there. I will find out if I can claim it soon. What
    should I hope for in price per pound if I can make this
    score. Would it be considered #1 or #2, how do you tell?
    It is uncoated but has a heavy patina or tarnish. Does
    anyone have a website that shows current prices, all the
    sites I find want you to register and I am not comfortable
    putting my address on websites just to see current scrap
    copper prices.

    Re: Metal Prices

    If the power company left the wire on your property, it's yours to do with as you wish. I'm guessing you are talking about the ground wire that runs down the pole? All yours! You may find it's kind of tuff to remove the wire from under the staples, but it can be done.

    As for value. Check the wire with a magnet to be sure it's not copper plated steel. If it passes the magnet test, it should sell as #1. $3.10 or more per pound.

    I don't think the wire is going to be solid copper.
    Check it out.

    Three of the four wires are solid copper, been there for many
    years. There is a large large large amount of copper laying
    there. I rolled up maybe 10% of it one day after I cleaned up
    the busted poles. Then after thinking about it I thought I
    might be getting myself into trouble.
    I talked to some people and some said I
    could go to jail, others said it was mine for the keeping. I
    am uncomfortable taking it. The thing is after this incident
    which knocked down hundreds of poles and the blizzard
    covered everything up, then this spring we had another
    horrendous ice storm that knocked down thousands of
    poles including the huge supply lines. I think the
    utility company is so overwhelmed that this one mile of
    line might have been forgotten. If I remind them they
    might say it is theirs and say leave it alone, on the other
    hand, if I take it I might get in trouble. I don't want
    to get in trouble but I don't want to remind them of an
    oversight and loose a huge windfall. Don't worry, I
    will do the right thing, just trying to sort this out.

    I am talking 3/4 of a mile of highline wires, three of the four
    are solid copper, the fourth is copper coated steel. by my
    calculations this is approximately 1000 lbs of copper not
    counting the ground wires on the poles which I have not
    attempted to salvage yet. I hear what you are saying about
    getting the ground wires off the poles but it is worth the
    labor even if I can't claim the other wire. I still think they
    just got so busy they didn't have time to come back and
    eventually they will come looking for it. I sure don't want
    to be labeled a theif but I don't want to call them and remind
    them they left $3000 worth of copper laying there if they
    already wrote it off, what to do?
