    Default recycling a catalytic converter

    I still have my old cat from my factory downpipe that i removed last year.. is it possible to sell these? I was thinking i should see what i can get for it, i know the tea leaves go about hacking these off cars and flogging them but i would not know here to start, i can't find much info locally via google etc.. Any tips, has anybody done this before, do i go straight to specialist recycling place or just to a scrappy?

    you reckon? i was thinking too try and miss them out the middle man as such and try and get a better price at a place they take them to, whether the extra dosh is worth the effort i don't know..

    I guess i will ring a couple of scrappies tomorrow to see what kind of money these things go for..

    I have spoken to a place and they said they will buy it but want to see the cat itself first either in person or via an email pic. He said the price depends on what type of cat it is and he will able to say once he has seen it. I have a pic now and will send it off to see what he says.. if the offer is less than a certain figure i have in mind i will keep it and flog it to another member at some point.

    yeah he sent me a message, i went to reply and discovered that he has been banned for some reason, shame.

    I ended up taking it to a place called EMR ltd and they gave me £70 cash for it. All they asked for was a pic of the end showing the cat in the pipe and another pic showing the whole untit from the side and they then gave me a price. I drove down to the local depot and cashed it in this lunchtime.
