Dunno how much it weighs but I had to move the barrel and couldn't even tip it on edge to roll. It is the residue of two houses and a schoolhouse. Last burn would have been in the early 80s.
Due to the liability I don't think I will be talking to any more scrap yards unless I find a way to clean it :)
They will accept salvaged copper from cleanup after a fire, no
problem, so why not from your ancient burn barrel??
I would lay it out on a driveway and have at it with a pressure
washer, then bundle up the cleaned copper into "logs" about 4 inches
by a foot long , and haul it off to my local recycler - I know my
local recycler would take it and at close to the top price.

The issue is the _burning_ of it, not the cause of it being burned. I seri
ously doubt it would be accepted. Burning it is illegal and it could be str

guess that the 'document from law enforcement' would cover that.
