Those are good prices on your scrap. Aluminum Breakage (Hard Drives) is about
16 cents a pound and cards run from 40 cents to $2 per pound depending on the
age and how heavy the gold plate it. Cut fingers go for more. HP gold plated
boards go for $3 to $3.50 per pound. Ask your scrapper how to sort your cards
for maximum value. Remove all Aluminum and Iron for maximum value.

There are several chip recyclers out there also who will pay a premium if the
cards have chips they want to pull for resale.

Many scrappers will buy small quantities. I could direct you to one in
Portland, OR but I think you can find one locally.

Astoria, OR
