Scrap Metal Cleanup

Gathered almost three thousand pounds of scrap metal from around the farm; metal roofing, cushed culverts, an old silo auger, metal chairs and even an old swing set complete with a teeter totter.

Of course no good deed goes unpunished. I called the scrap metal yard in Culpeper before I drove it down there on Saturday morning. It closed at 11:30 and I got there at 11am. After I got off the scale the guy came out and told me they aren’t accepting any scrap metal because their machine is broken. Told him I literally just called and he said they forgot to tell the lady in the front office that I spoke to…great.

Ended up taking it to the Orange county dump which accepted it for free since they are going to recycle it too. The dump trailer proved to make this much easier than it would have been otherwise.
