What could I do with all this HVAC duct?

Do you guess what a “scrapper” is? You may have a weird word for them where you live, however around here a Scrapper is someone who drives around collecting scrap metal. The garbage collectors won’t touch old appliances, bikes, or giant bulky items, however if you leave them by the roadside for long enough, eventually a Scrapper will take them away for you. Recently I was completing a task, and found myself with a lot of scrap metal to get rid of. I had to remove various hundred feet worth of old HVAC duct, which is made of wafer-thin sheet metal. There was so much scrap metal that I couldn’t haul it all to the dump, nor could I leave it by the roadside. There was too much of it, and the rusty, razor-thin edges of the broken air ducts were very dangerous and could entirely cut someone. A scrapper finally came by, and I asked him to take as various of the air vents and broken ducts as he could carry. He only had a small pickup truck, which couldn’t fit enough of the air ducts to make a difference. That’s when something awesome happened – the scrapper pulled out his cell iphone and started calling his scrapper buddies to help him with the HVAC duct. Instead of trying to keep all the scrap metal HVAC duct for himself, he “shared the wealth” and within an second there were various other scrappers here loading up their vehicles with metal. I had no idea there were so various scrappers, nor did I guess how expensive HVAC duct could be to them.
