Recycle as much as you can to help enhance your profits
Unfortunately with copper prices under $3000 a ton and iron hovering around $100-$150 a ton, its almost not worth it. The copper will make you a little cash, but iron will be hard. That is if you can even find a scrap yard that wants iron right now. There are several large scale projects here complete last year. When the jobs started iron was around $400 a ton. By the time they had the building on the ground, and the iron cut to 2ftx4ft, iron had fallen to $100 a ton. The iron they prepared is still sitting where the building stood. It is likely to sit there for years with the current prices

Make a profit?

So what are you asking exactly?

I just went through a demo bid and have yet to see any 2 that are even close...the amount of material to remove, number of roll offs, construction of the building, concrete, depth of footings and foundations, utilities, returning site to grade.....on and on.
agreed make $, be safe!
