For a homeowner getting rid of old nails, screws, and an assortment of random pipes and metals from a demo, I was very (positively) surprised at how quickly the people at C&D made it through. They told me what to do and where to go and even helped me unload! I even got out with far more money than I expected and of course, got a $2 bill and an aluminum cup on the way out. Thank you for a quick and smooth transaction!
