    I don't run that area often but when i do i usually field a few calls from an agent trying to move baled cardboard. While it is to cheap for me, it isnt a buck a mile cheap. Im sure some of it also gets shipped to China and other high manufacturing/low consumption countries plenty of it stays right here in the U.S.

    That's a guaranteed way to not have any customers when you come back.

    That's what they all say. When you get there it is bailed garbage going to the landfill.

    Apparently that bailed cardboard puts them back in a lane they wanna be in. So the rate doesnt matter because theyre hands are back in the cookie jar . Just like they planned
