    Shrinking Profit Margins For Scrap Yards

    Good article at American Recycler on shrinking profit margins in the scrap yard business. One problem nationwide is that there are too many shredders installed.

    American Recycler News, Inc. - Dealing with shrinking profit margins



    I can see the premium shred pricing in my Philly/Trenton area. The yard with a new mega shredder is paying $200 a ton for shred while other yards are paying $160 to $180 a ton.

    That's becuase the other yards are selling to the yard with mega shredder.
