    Now, I know that a lot of businesses are a little less than efficient in some of their dealings, but you'd kinda figure that someone would question why a memorial plaque was being brought in for scrap. Unless of course its in a bulk sale, I guess.

    Many years ago, I did an armed escort for a 5 ton truck filled with weapons parts that we delivered directly to the smelter. Dumped the truck right into the hopper and then witnessed it being dumped into the smelter itself. We could have loaded dead bodies into the truck, I suppose......

    And don't forget about the dirtbag scrap yards that will accept this stuff, no questions asked.

    The only thing I could think of SPFD is if bronze is easy to bust up with a sledge or something so it's not as recognizeable to the recyclers <-- Yes, I know, big benefit of the doubt!
