Hey scrappers! Jeff here from RBF Products The other day I was asked if I strip all the wires I get even like Christmas light wires and my answer for the most part was yes a, there are a couple of exceptions but a….. I put together a demo here to explain why. As you can see I got 2 boxes here Each one of these has got the volume of a 1 gallon container. The reason I did that is because I usually haul in 5 gallon containers at a time. Ahh…..that way I can just calculate what we got here and multiply by 5 to give you some numbers What I got here is a container full of Christmas tree er, Christmas light wires Now that’s gonna go for low grade insulated wire at about 20 cents a pound. Now that box there weighs a little over 2.3 pounds Sooooo, if I take in a 5 gallon bucket of that at 20 cents a pound I’m only gonna get around $2.30 Now here is the same 1 gallon container with bare bright Now that weighs 5.485 pounds and using September, 2014 numbers for 5 gallons I’m gonna get around $71.30 for 5 gallons of bare bright So as you can see, I mean hauling 5 gallon buckets at a time I’m not going to drive to the scrap yard for $2.30 but, now I will drive to the scrap yard for $70.00 it’s just more economical that way I don’t do this as a full-time job. I usually do scrapping in between or filler work so to me it’s just alot more economical to just go to the scrap yard everytime I have increments of 5 gallon buckets of a material to turn in If you liked that video, Go ahead and click the LIKE icon, comment on the comment section Subscribe to my channel I’ll get you updates on all my new videos and updates on all my old videos See ya!
