I took a load of cans to recycle a couple weeks ago, the recycling place is also the only ginseng buyer in my county. I checked their price and they were paying $275 a pound. Do you think they're trying to rip folks off?
I was thinking with the hot-dry weather there'd be less dug and prices would be higher.
I likely won't dig for a few years but the prices you guys are quoting makes the effort planting and eventually digging less demanding.
That has to be green price. Everything around here is still 600-650 a pound. I never thought I would’ve believed it but I’m a believer now that the rioting in Hong Kong is having a big effect on the dry price. I would’ve bet money that with the short digging season this year due to the heat and drought that we would’ve seen prices closer to 750-800 pound this year but I don’t think we’re going to see it.
Took another load of cans in yesterday, the price for clean and dry was up to $400.
I mentioned offhand to the lady behind the window who pays me that the price had creeped up, and that it was over $600 in other states. Her response was "I don't know" and she slid the window shut. I never have liked her customer skills much and will find another place to take my aluminium business to. lol I suspect they under-pay for just about everything.
