I have heard horror stories about that stuff. There are only a few yards (that I know of) in all of Indiana who buy it. First, a sample will have to be sent out and verified, and you will have to jump through hoops to prove that it isn't stolen. This stuff is not really very common and is extremely expensive.
Did a small run Thur. and our yard is paying .55 for cast alum, .80 for alum cans, 3.15 for #2 clean, 1.25 for #2 insulated, .40 for xmas lights, .35 for elect.motors. About a 150. day. Yipee
7-13-11 SW MN. just asked about price on a few things at a yard I've been going to for almost 30 years and wishing I had alternative markets to deal with. batteries .18/lb, #2 copper $2.80/lb. car bodies and tin 160.oo/ton #2 prepared or mixed steel $190.oo/ton.
I been trying to hold out for a little higher steel and copper prices but may just have to bite it and get a few tons of iron outa here to stay alive.
#1 clean copper $3,85 at my yard today, is it going to hit $4.00 this week.
Had a 50 lb bucket of #1 stolen last night. $190 out the griggin window.
Sorry to hear that......I know how hard that hit can be when at our level it's survival earnings, food for your family, power bills etc.....and they need to steal our life's blood so they don't have to work to get high.
Makes me feel sorta homicidal......
