Hey guys I've been collecting up e-scrap for years not really knowing where to sell vs fair pricing. Would it be worth starting up a small business buying e-scrap in South Georgia having to ship such a long distance? Granted there is no local competition that I'm aware of. And have access to 5 recycling yards who allow me to get material and buy it at a cheap price. Any help for me guys?

First I'm going to move this to the business thread.
That said... i started e-waste as a scrapper. Picking up junk off the side of the road, and mixing in my shop waste. It lead to a chance encounter of a widow of a former Nicos network installer with an entire house full of junk. And that was back in the mid 90s. It funded(es) my computer work.
But i will never deter anyone from getting involved.
That said running a recycling business and scrapping are two very different things.
If you are really ready (think you're ready) i can set you up with links to guides to what you would need as far as information. On scrapping on recycling. Laws for your state . And sone guidelines and membership info to get you going. The rest is up to you.
The more you learn the more you earn.

Any Texas help would be greatly appreciated, although I am more interested in scrapping side of things all types of material.

I also would like to get any sort of e scrap business in Georgia. I was a buyer for over 5 years at one of the main recycling centers. Seeing profits from what they did buy was just crazy. I'm willing to invest in a escrap business asap. Georgia especially anything under Atlanta would be ideal please contact me if you have any ideas I'm very knowledgeable I don't know everything but materials and buying skills are my strong suit

Georgia is a bit of a hot bed with lots of Industry and major military options as well.
Benning remains a great source of specialised materials auctioned off via Atlanta offices quite often.
On the consumer side you have major competition. I'll be back on this for you in a few days.
