The bastard copper thieves might be making it harder for regular people to get rid of assorted scrap metal now days, but I think one wrecking yard I usually use to dump scrap steel is just being a dick. I had two scrap piles (a "Woo-hoo" pile & steel pile) to get rid of Friday & Saturday, but I had a problem getting rid of one pile.......surprisingly it's the steel pile.
The "Woo-hooo!" ($$$) scrap pile of assorted aluminum (plate, sheet, cans, etc), and old copper water pipe & brass valves (remodeling parents house) was accepted at one yard without any real hassles other than giving then my drivers license & truck tag numbers.
But for some reason the wrecking yard I have always gone to in the past to scrap steel wouldn't take the load today because it had scrap floor & firewall parts out of a race car being built mixed in with scrap tubing cuts, sheet metal cuts, busted engine parts, (etc, etc).
In the past they would take floor/firewall parts without a title, and outer body skin & frame sections if you had a title. Today they said no car "body" parts PERIOD!! (with or without the title.....WTF?) they said it was the LAW because of the copper thieves (again WTF?). He also refused to take the other non-auto scrap iron just because it was mixed with (and touching???) the auto stuff. An automotive wrecking yard that refuses to take automotive parts??? I'm confused.
