I have a cast iron radiator and sink that I was going to toss out in the trash until a relative said I could get money for if I sell them to a scrap yard.

Can anyone recommend a good place to sell it and do you know how much the going price would be so I don't get ripped off? The sink is a bathroom sized sink (porcelain glazed) and the radiator is about 1 and 1/2 feet high by a foot wide.

LOL, funny, true, but funny. I don't think cast irn has that big a value for a one shot drop off. Leave it out at the curb, and let the junkies pick it up.

Truth be told, I have no idea what cast iron is going for. I was hoping to get around $50 total for both items, but if $10-$20 is really all it would be worth then yeah, I'll just leave it for the scrappers who drive around in the morning.

Anyone know what the going price is regardless?

It's not worth it. We had something we needed to get rid of before we moved (and for the life of me I cannot remember now what it was) and we looked into it - it was TOTALLY not worth it.

Oh, just remembered - it was an iron railing that had been on our old front steps. Would've gotten like $5.

If you have an old boiler to get rid of like we did they gave my brother in law 80 bucks. He scraps alot we can't be bothered so we gave it to him.
