Years (10+) ago I collected a fair quantity of my firestone kegs by going to a local metal scrap yard and buying them for about a $1 each. Geographical area aside, are there still old soda kegs available out there for joe blow to buy, or have all of them been purchased and refurbished?

I have never seen kegs of any kind in scrap yards around me. – brewchez Apr 4 '12 at 23:17

Not all of them are gone, but the chances of finding them are decreasing. The ones that are still there are more expensive than in the past.
