Another Scrapper took my Scrap!

Posted: May 20, 2013

Sunday Funday. Commonly termed for day drinking, Sunday Funday has become a great day for scrapping during the April and May months. With spring cleanups in full effect, it is an exciting thing to see all of the scrap that starts to get put outside on the curb.

For instance, on Mother’s Day I went to my Moms house and had my pickup truck with me. Her neighbor was throwing out about 500 lbs of light iron that I went to pick up. Before I threw it into my truck I went into the house to give Mom a big ole hug, hand deliver flowers, and by the time that I did that another scrapper came and scooped the scrap right up.

While I was dissappointed that I didn’t get the score, I was happy to coincidentally see that scrapper come to Rockaway Recycling a few days later with the metal. Sometimes just getting a piece of the pie is better then being greedy and having the whole thing.
