Do alleys around the entire city have scavengers that drive around all day looking for metal? Why? What do they do with all the metal? When does gas get too expensive for them to stop driving around everyday? Which neighborhoods are best for finding metal? And, finally, how much money does it save the city from not having to pick it up?
