Whats the value of scrap metal at the mo? I have a shitbox 1996 Escort auto that is quite possably the worst car I have ever owned, and it's geting binned in the next couple of days. Is it worth me arseing about taking it to be weighed in or not? Or shall I just get some one to pick it up and take it away?

Cheers

Most charge to take it away, due to the cost of recycling. £40 - £60 is what I've heard.

I have just been offered £80 to come and get it. By the time I have driven it to the nearest place and Jo has picked me up, we would use £15-£20 in fuel. I'll strip what I want off it on the drive and they can come and get it.

Cheers guys

cats vary between £1.00 for an aftermarket to around £160.00 for an exotic most bmw genuine cats are only about £6.00 as they are not ceramic
