Each scrap yard is unique and it can take a few trips to find the right one. What material to look out for depend on how you plan to source it but the one that can be the biggest money maker is copper. It is very common and its price is huge given how available it is. If you have access to scrap copper wire then that is a great way to make some money. Another aspect of being a good scrapper is your methods of sourcing material.
