    It seems unlikely that you would be able to find a market here in the U.S. We were exporting scrap metal to China but that has slowed considerably over the last few years. At present, we have more than enough domestic scrap to be used as feedstock for manufacturing. There doesn't seem to be a need to import scrap from abroad right now.

    You are located close to Europe. Is there a market there ?

    Anything going on in India or Pakistan ?

    If it was in the US, if my calculations are correct that would be $6.2million in scrap... if someone would buy it... that is a lot of metal.....

    You may be able to find some info in the buyers/sellers section here. But if it is all light iron/steel, you will probably have to find someone local to you. No one here is going to be able/willing/want to deal with the logistics of moving 100,000 tons from wherever you are, to where ever they are. At least I wouldnt but maybe someone on here would. I don't think that would be able to be profitable if it needed shipped. If you could give us a location we maybe could help more. If it were me, and I had that, I would call up the local yards and ask their current prices on a large amount of steel or light iron and if they will come get it with a 18-wheeler dump truck. I doubt they would even be able to buy the whole 100,000 at once, but you might be able to sell them like... 1000 tons a week until its gone and work out a deal/price.

    Hey there! With that kind of weight and with the evident complete lack of experience you're gonna wanna contact one of the larger scrapyards in Istanbul or Ankara and ask them to broker a sale.

    Greytruck has provided valuable information. At scrapmonster you can track the scrap metal indexes and network among buyers. To put your situation in perspective, you have metal in the largest scrap metal importing country in the world, (use to be China until they stopped building the ghost cities) asking the biggest exporting country in the world, (US) where you can sell it. Something is wrong with this equation.

    Yes, this is true. In other words, we should be asking YOU, where we (in the US) can get rid of our scrap near you (in Turkey). Feel out your local area, you will get more help then here and also will make more money since anyone buying here would be selling/middle-manning to someone who eventually would be exporting it to somewhere (possibly even in your area). But, good luck man, you have enough metal that if I had it I could live off it (or its proceeds) for the rest of my life.
