Scrap happens

Got scrap?

Call Bob at L&K Scrap Metal. He's a crusty ol' fella who can heave a cast-iron sink better than a pup a third of his age.

Corroded interior of cast-iron drain pipe

Be ready to roll before you call.


Today I called him to pick up beat-up metal cabinets, sinks, screen doors and all the old plumbing pipe.


He shot back something in his particular mumble-holler.


"What?" I said.


Then, over the phone, I could hear the ding-ding-ding of his truck door opening, and I translated: "Be right there." Sure enough. Now that's service.
