    Buying e-waste and non-ferrous commodities in Las Vegas

    Hi all!



    We, ENF Recycling, 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 check, money order, paypal, venmo, cashapp, or Western Union/Wal-mart money transfer. Any fees (such as Western Union) on the payment end will be deducted from the settlement.

    Here is our price sheet accurate as of 4 September 2020. You can consider the e-waste current no matter when you access. Consider the non-ferrous accurate only for the date of the spreadsheet. Non-ferrous pricing is much more volatile and 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 multiple tons of the same commodity (or relatively large quantities of higher value scrap such as bare bright copper or gold RAM) or gaylords of an identical circuit board be in touch about pricing (with picture of board front and back) as we may be able to cut our margin on large quantities. We happily accept mixed pallets of smaller quantities of e-waste or other scrap.

    Some of the non-ferrous pricing overlaps with e-waste. 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 gaylord or higher quantities of specific commodities not listed such as 7050/7075 Aluminum solids, hard brass, tungsten, inconel 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

    Nice monitor pricing! Confirmed some of what I was thinking. Wish I could make it work with shipping. I looked at LTL with 15 pallets, 9000 pounds and it would have cost as much to ship as I probably would have gotten. I guess I just live on the wrong coast in this situation.

    Yeah at that distance....it's tough lol. Even a full truckload with 36 pallets (18 spots all double stacked) the distance might be too much to make $ sense.

    Have a new outlet for Cu wire Cat-5 and below. Will wait a moment to ensure sustainability before adjusting public pricing but if you have a good quantity hit me up. On wire cat-5 and below might be able to go as much as .12/lb higher than the prices above (as of 28 July 2020)

    Changed the definition of a fingercard as I can sell all but the ones with the largest heatsinks and fans as fingercards. The top picture here I cannot buy as a fingercard. The bottom five are clean fingercards for me.

    Updated non-ferrous pricing and gave a little bump to power boards and low-grade boards. Couple examples accurate as of 15 Oct:

    Bare bright: $2.59
    Romex: $1.41
    6063 Bare: $.53
    Red brass: $1.75
    Power boards: $.25
    Low grade boards: $.21

    If you have full gayloards of any commodity or over 10,000lbs of a commodity can always give a price bump!

    While I would very much like to buy your materials, you can always email me just to get a nice PDF price sheet to use to argue up your local pricing if mine is significantly higher for non-ferrous! So....sell to me! Or at least threaten to!

    Careful with this approach, I've seen people get banned from the yard (or at least warned about getting banned from the yard) for trying to complain/compare prices. I once mentioned how the wire I had once usually get classified as a higher grade and I get $x price for it at another yard and the guy said "number one rule at scrap yards is don't complain about the price or try to haggle, if my manager heard you say that he would have kicked you out of here" .... which seems like B.S. but.... just something that happened not sure if it's actually true. Ive also seen this same place say if you don't like our prices take your stuff somewhere else and refuse to accept a load from someone after he was hemming and hawing over the price. So... idk., just saying. And both these occurances were at the largest yard in the area, so that may have had something to do with it (they have the best prices on steel and shred it onsite, but not so much best prices on non-ferrous)

    This might be a problem if you bring in small quantities. But I don't see it as likely if you have enough material that it would make sense to ship freight anyway.

    All scrap yards try to do is play is "short man syndrome". Tell them to pound sand and walk away. It's the same as people out here on the forum. They all want to be a big dog, knowing no one will call their bluff.

    I just went through this 3 weeks ago. Had a pile of lead. I just kept stacking, never did bother to weigh it. I figured I'd only sell 20-50 lbs at a crack. Had 3 buyers @ 50. Then a guy said he'd take all I had. So I rounded it all up. weighed it, told him I had 550 lbs with his name on it. Lot of back pedaling with that big number. If you're gonna think you can play with the big dogs, be prepared to play.
