Is there something else I should be doing with it or should I just throw it in the steel? May 1, 2017 at 6:07 pm #3061 DttG8611Participant I seperate mine in its own barrel. I get 15-20 cents a lb for clean, 5 cents a lb if its got iron, steel, plastic etc mixed in Author Posts You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
