We take on that attitude that if you want nice bikes, you have to take the crappy ones too, because a bianchi covered in campy and a rusty huffy both look like worthless old bikes to the average joe -- since we want the bianchi, we take the huffy too, and smile the same way.  The important thing is to have the infrastructure and process for quickly recycling metal.  We are fortunate to be able to put scrap metal outside the building and have it disappear without a phone call in 10 minutes tops thanks to roaming scrappers.

how do I nicely tell the kind folks that we really can't use their pickup truck full of rusty magnas without sounding like a snob?
