Scrap sales soar as prices rise

2008-07-25 00:00

Scores of locals who have been able to get their hands on scrap steel have flocked to scrap metal dealers across Pietermaritzburg in the wake of rising steel prices and a certain amount of desperation from those who have felt the pinch of the tough economic climate.

Sellers bring along a wide variety of ëscrapsí, including unusual and even rare items such as ëcollectableí cars manufactured in the 1940s and 1950s, farming implements that are well over a century old, old coal stoves, kettles and sewing machines. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
