Yesterday my husband and I hauled a load of scrap metal to the recycling center. When we went inside to pick up our earnings, we were surprised to see that they had items for sale in the lobby. Metal shelving, vintage gas cans, tools and the big galvanized wash tub that you see above.
And the prices were crazy good. They were only asking $3 for the wash tub (and it’s a biggie). So, basically, it looks like they’re rescuing usable items from the scrap bin, and selling them at their scrap value. Pretty cool.
It always made me a little sad to think about the things that were getting melted down just because someone needed the cash, so I love that they’re doing this. And being a bargain-loving kind of girl, it looks like I’ll be stopping by the recycling center more often.
