Scrap Steel Business Shares Payoff
After a tornado passed over my farm and knocked down a couple buildings, I decided to get rid of a lot of old machinery that had been stored in those buildings.
  Most scrap iron dealers are not reputable. They'll take your steel but they won't pay you for it. So I shopped around and found a local scrap metal dealer who operates in a different way.
  Greg Lattig, Tower Hill, Ill., has been a scrap metal dealer for 10 years. He splits whatever the steel is worth with the owner, minus his expenses. He showed up with a long trailer with a beaver tail loading ramp for loading his tractor. He loaded up the trailer and paid me a couple hundred dollars.
  The lesson I learned: Shop around when looking for a scrap dealer.
