Nice job! You should make battery recycling into a business!
Well, I thought about it, but apparently copper recycling is more profitable.

I've read several stories lately about thieves stealing copper. In Halifax harbour, someone cut up an 11 km long copper cable from a dock crane that will cost $100,000 to replace. They were only able to actually make off with about half of it though. Crazy.

Yes, I've seen stuff like that online, that's it's big and all.

Last year when I worked at the shop the new guy would always talk about how people would steal the rain gutters and things for aluminum scrap. Crazy times.
