Imagine my horror when Charlie loaded into the car and brought home the above enormous, non-working air conditioner!!! He assured me “it’s worth something.”
A few days later he had it all apart and loaded the parts back into the car.
We drove the constituent pieces down the road a few miles to our local non-ferrous recycling business. (For some reason they did not want their name in the photos so I blocked it out. They have 6 locations throughout Maryland.)
Charlie unloaded the various parts: a motor, some aluminum, some wires. The recycler’s agent weighed each different thing.
When everything was weighed and counted Charlie went to the cashier.
He was presented with $35.65. (I had guessed about $35 although I had no basis whatsoever for my guess.)
It just goes to prove one man’s junk is another man’s trip to his favorite Mexican restaurant.
Do you deal in old junk?
Sidebar: Apparently on Wednesdays Senior Citizens get an additional premium.
When questioned the agent said it really only applied to aluminum cans. We were there on Thursday and weren’t cashing in cans.
