Not So Precious Metals Recycling
Like everyone else who works with sterling and fine silvers, I collect my scrap and send it off to be refined. I send mine in to Rio Grande and really enjoy getting the credit applied to future orders. But what about base metal scrap? I'm really diligent about saving every tiny snip of wire and sheet and my husband recycles it for me at a place in Pensacola. I hadn't really paid much attention to the current values of those metals so, I was surprised when my latest batch was worth almost $18.
How do you deal with your accumulated base metal scrap?
