Bus seats

Where in Houston area can i rid of my bus seats? I called a few junk hauling places but they weren't cheap so i figured I'd do it myself. How'd you guys go about it?

I have pulled the seats out of two buses this year. I tried to give the seats away on CL.

Lots of flakes..... After 15-20 no-shows I hauled them to the scrap yard. They helped me unload them and didn't charge me.

seats

we took them apart - the foam seats and board backs went to the dump - $4.50. Then we took the 800 lbs of steel to the recycle yard, + $50. Put the leg of one of the seats through the lights on the trailer , -$25. Enough left over for dinner at Jimmy Johns for 2.

Wow. Maybe weld all them seat frames into some cool yard art.

This how to solder copper tubing. I'm not sure what it has to do with your seats, but I found it educational.

I have 16 left to pull on mine. You might get online and offer on a church site. Most school systems have plenty on their deadlines. I'm taking these to the dump.

Did 800 lbs of steel come from the seats alone? Or is that with the inside walls? How much per pound did they pay?
