On the thread of recovering metals from waste &c: I don't think
anyone has mentioned Garfield yet. We have dealt with Garfield
for years, with consistently good results to the best of my
knowledge. They can handle extremely small amounts, like a
one-store operation such as Maxon's usually produces; they can
also deal with bigger quantities, like the huge load of scrap we
picked up once in a major estate buy-out.
I don't have their address or phone # handy, but I can dig it up
if nobody else posts them. In addition, Garfield advertises
quite a bit in a number of the major jewelry trade magazines.
