Arrow Scrap Iron... anyone want it, FREE, Northern NJ

I was going to post this in the Northeast forum... but figured it would get more exposure here.

I've got A LOT of scrap iron (old radiators, etc.) from a 2 family house. I can get an exact count, but it's more than 12 radiators... likely closer to 20. Half are the original ones from the early 1900's and the other half are from the 50's.

If anyone has interest, you can have them free, just come get them.

PM if interested. They're located in Hoboken, NJ.

Thanks,
Pete

Scrap is paying nothing right now. Just scrapped 1/2 of a factory and got very little.

I know... apparently people want them, even if they need to be repaired, people apparently fix them or use them for something... not sure what, but they do. I believe they are cracked (freeze damage)... but not sure if they all are.

Short time back scrap was paying pretty decent.
I just heard today a guy brought a pickup full in and ended up with 5 bucks.

One guys said $10 for 200lbs. But that's if we brought it to him... less since he'd pick it up. But I could just tell that it wasn't going to be pretty. If I didn't care, I'd just post up on craigslist and let some brutes come in, drag them out, and throw them down the stairs (I've done that before and the stuff is gone in an hour)... trouble is, I need them carried out (hardwood floors)... so I'm hopeful that a THTer might give a crap a little more. LOL.

Heck, I'm even willing to pay to haul them away... just don't want any issues.

He is talking cast iron radiators from a house, not from a vehicle. At least that's what I think.

If they are not cracked as you suspect, there is a market for them as people that remodel and add to old houses use them. I did when I added on to my old house years ago.

If cracked they might make excellent anchors for mooring buoys. I seem to remember cast is very slow to rust when no oxygen is present.

Can they be repurposed at a home resale store like Habitat for Humanity?
