Prices for Pacific Steel & Recycling, Nampa, Idaho
Hauled 3 loads of scrap on Wednesday.
Tin & car bodies (Dodge Dynasty) 2060 lbs @ .12 1/2 cents $250
Scrap iron 1760 lbs @ .08 cents $140.80
Scrap iron 1160 lbs @ .09 cents $104.40
Was surprised I got as much as I did for the car because:
1. I stripped it clean. (Motor/trans., cat, radiator, oil cooler, wire harnesses, heater core, evaporator, window motors, master cylinder, alternator, starter, etc)
2. When I called a few weeks ago asking price per ton on cars they said $160. So when I saw what the ticket said I mentioned that cars must have gone up. Nope she says. It's $160 a ton.
"But... this here says..."
She tried explaining it several times. It never made sense but I am happy with it.
As for the 2nd and 3rd trips, both loads were same type of material so I don't get the penny difference, especially since the penny higher was on a smaller load. 8 cents is what I usually get.
