    Preferably around Clackamas or thereabouts but west side is fine too. I've been to a few around North Portland/Marine drive etc. and don't really like those just due to location and or other requirements ("you have to buy 1000# of lead minimum") lol.
    Mainly looking to get rid of (sell) some of your normal old stuff (stomped aluminum cans, bent aluminum ladders etc.) and to buy lead.
    Thanks

    I actually had to look twice at your post/username to make sure this wasn't more crap from Deadeye.

    That is my industry, but I never roll my scrap trailer south. I always hit the Tacoma yards. Wish I could help you, man.

    Been a long time since I've been there, probably 6-7 years, but use to go to Clackamas Steel off 224/Evelyn quite a bit. Never really sold them any scrap, but did buy scrap by the pound from them quite a few times, as well as dimensional steel. I've used them and Newberg for dimensional and really can't complain about either.

    I had been hearing some radio advertisements for Davis Recycling (I couldn't really remember the name though) and called them today.. I like the location and of course they take all metals but only sell lead, which is fine with me.. said to call first though.. fair prices.

    I don't know why I spaced Davis, but we've recycled with them for years cardboard and my churches youth group growing up use to take tons on newspaper there. They are also very pro-gun!
