    Buying commercial quantities of scrap metal in Las Vegas

    Hi all!

    We, ENF Recycle, are a commercial scrapyard in Las Vegas, Nevada (in zip code 89030 with a dock to receive trucks if you’re calculating freight shipping). We buy from commercial clients and are not open to the public except by appointment. So if you’d like to drop off your scrap yourself please make an appointment. We can pay via cash, check, money order, paypal, venmo, cashapp, zelle, or Western Union/Wal-mart money transfer. Any fees (such as Western Union) on the payment end will be deducted from the settlement.



    Nationally competitive pricing on transformers and insulated aluminum wire

    Here is our price sheet accurate as of 13 July 2021. Consider the pricing accurate only for the date of the spreadsheet as it can change daily. Please call, private message here or email for up to date non-ferrous pricing. As a commercial yard the pricing below applies to commercial quantities. If you have a full gaylord of any material listed you can add .02/lb to the pricing. If you have multiple tons of the same commodity we may be able to cut our margin on large quantities. We happily accept mixed pallets scrap.

    Some of the non-ferrous pricing overlaps with e-waste commodities. Unpainted extruded aluminum heatsinks without epoxy, paper or steel, for example, we buy as “6063 Bare”, painted extruded aluminum heatsinks without epoxy or steel as “6063 Painted” and extruded aluminum heatsinks with minor epoxy or small amounts of steel as “6063 95%”. The computer power supply pigtails we buy as "harness wire" along with the customary auto harnesses. At some point I may make this into an always accurate daily spreadsheet but don’t hold your breath lol. All pricing is $/lb unless noted otherwise.

    If you have commodities not listed such as 7050/7075 Aluminum solids, hard brass, tungsten, inconel, titanium or anything else please be in touch for pricing, same with borings/turnings of any commodity listed in the spreadsheet.

    We accept scrap via freight, drop off (by appointment) or by package delivery (Fedex, UPS, etc.) and can arrange freight shipping if needed. You can message me here or email me at whateverwithjj [at] gmail [dot] com or via text at 7two5 2zero3 6four88

    Apart from my daily listed price, in quantities over 15000lbs am currently paying premiums for most lower grade wire apart from jelly wire. For example at today's copper price would buy ICW #2 50% (Cat 5/6 mixes and like) at 1.54

Current price for quantities of cat-5/ICW #2 50% over 15,000 lbs is $1.73/lb).

    Cu #1: $4.00/lb
    ICW #2 35%: 1.03

    I don't update this sheet everyday because there is only one forum member I currently buy from with any regularity - though I have bought over $100k in non-ferrous from them since roughly September! - but with the continual bumps of copper I'm buying #2 copper over $4/lb for the first time in my career. Some of you have been in the business much, much longer than me and might remember the last copper spike but this is a first for me. Even bought low-grade wire over $1.15 today. What a ride recently!

    Ain't that the way it goes? If you do happen to save up close to ftl quantities though, reach out and I'll give you a quote for everything picked up and will pay the freight

    Al/Cu heatsinks with Cu slug irony: .78
    Power boards: .40

    Pricing updated! Even with the recent copper drops our pricing is still a little higher than when I last updated two weeks ago. Couple of sorta announcements. Boosted the pricing on both copper transformers and insulated aluminum wire, especially the transformers. Have a new outlet and believe I'm competitive anywhere nationally at .67/lb right now. This applies to Cu transformers over 1lb only! Al/Cu transformers are around half that price but still higher than the breakage price they normally get. Also starting to buy 5000 series aluminums at pricing much higher than MLC. Lots of stuff at high water prices since I've been scrapping including lead and 316 stainless. As always, add .02/lb for full gaylord quantities of anything over .45/lb and be in touch for quantities over 10,000 lbs. Some current pricing samples below:

    Insulated aluminum wire: .42
    Aluminum rims clean: .76
    5052 Aluminum sheet/plate/clip: .88
    316 stainless steel solids/sheet: .80
    Soft lead clean: .60
    Servers complete: .60
    Cu bare bright: 4.08
    ICW #2 45%: 1.44

    Big news! I'm no longer in the e-waste business, at least not at a significant level. Our non-ferrous and ferrous business has picked up to such a degree that e-waste disassembly and e-commerce is less beneficial than spending time recruiting and servicing non-ferrous and ferrous clients. Sometime in the next 2-3 weeks will ship out my last foreseeable big circuit board load. I will still happily buy e-waste but only to flip as is locally and not at pricing competitive with most of the forum members. I'm happy to connect you directly with the places I previously sold e-waste to or my CRT recycling contact.

    Below are some non-ferrous prices for today. Copper has dropped a bit since my last update here but some aluminums are jumping quite a bit!:


    Copper #1: $3.75/lb
    Romex: 2.20
    ICW #2 35%: .93
    EC Wire: .96
    Al litho: .78
    5052 solids: .94
    6063 bare: 1.01
    316 stainless: .89

    E-waste has a much, much higher ceiling here in Las Vegas due to a relative lack of competition and greater than scrap value's extraordinary margins but simplifying was the way to go for me. Commercial scale peddling and brokering the occasional truckload is easy work once you build a base. It doesn't make me a ton of money but it makes me enough to not struggle every day and doesn't occupy my mind after hours. And that's a fine life.

    While I have yet to physically sell any scrap to JJ, I will say that we have had an excellent, mutually beneficial business transaction. Assisting fellow members, even 2600 miles away, with client relationships has its benefits.
    Thank you JJ and I will be sure to be on the look out for more opportunities.

    Thank you! I'm always happy to pay for a successful referral and appreciate you thinking of me when you saw the opportunity.
