Ugh guys. I seriously need help. I was forced by my insurance company to take down a shed - so I hand demolished my dad's old shed last summer with the help of a couple of friends. Did not have the funds to have it professionally demolished OR taken away. Now I am stuck with tons of 2x4's and 4x4's (some nailed 2, 3 and 4 together!!) ...and I can't manage them on my own. They have been treated in linseed oil (They are 20+ years old, grayed, but the wood is still good on alot of it) They do have nails in almost every single piece, though.. I also have a decent amount of scrap metal (Large metal door, pipes, etc) ..
Does anyone know of anyone who will come take (at least some) of this material off my hands for free? One company wanted 1400 hundred bucks to come take it. I don't have a truck or a trailer to haul this stuff, and some of these 4x4's are extremely long. I've tried taking a chainsaw to them, and being a small female, none of this is working out! It is driving me absolutely crazy, I want the stuff gone! I had a guy come look, he said he wanted some of it, but once he saw it he refused. If anyone can give any advice I'd really appreciate it.

You can try to Freecycle it.

You'd be amazed at what people want and will take. Post it there and just say, you have to take everything or nothing.
