    Somerset ky
    Tin/appliances/shred ....$80/ ton
    Short steel/#2 prepared iron...$140/ton
    Car bodies.....$115/ton empty
    ****Car bodies full of junk ..$105/ton

    *****That is a new category because people was filling their car bodies with tin/shred and getting that price instead of the lower price,(guilty!!!).

    820 pounds in northeast DFW got me 41 bucks and a Chick-fil-a chicken sammich. They hand out Chick-fil-a on Saturday mornings. I don't know why... it's not like they need to incentivise people to come in that day! It's CRAZY busy!

    So 5 cents a pound.

    Shred up another $5 / ton. Not a big jump but im sure its cause of the cold and snow. Its been pretty much a ghost town there lately and curb co is sold out and im ganna get a rain check. Shred now 145/ton at the shredder yard and 125/ton at non shredder yard.

    Back up to $105/ton from $95 Tuesday.

    Wednesday... worst snowstorm in Denver that I can recall, not in inches of snow by a long shot, but the wind and blowing snow etc... and I have lived in the metro area since 1975. It was worse on the south and east side of town. The highway at an intersection very close to my house was closed from there to Kansas. Sadly I heard there was even one fatality.

    Unconfirmed, but i heard 60 $ a ton last week.

    Gasoline held at 2.499 through the winter but it's on the rise.

    Ten cent increase to 2.599 / gal last week.

    Another ten cent increase to 2.699 / gal. a few days ago.

    Shred down $10 / ton at the non shredder yard. Their web site still said 140/ton, not 130. Cashier checked the web site and with the boss.... Got the 140/Ton. Classy fellas

    This is why a lot of companies don't post scrap prices on the net.........price can go up or down daily and no time to update site

    $85/ton at the yard that was previously at $100/ton

    I'm glad this last load I didn't drive more than a few miles to obtain.

    In fact I might be done with this for a little while. Not sure $85/ton is worth it with fuel prices where they are.

    $75/ton @ Atlas Iron & Metal of Aurora

    Glad I had mostly non-ferrous - (totaled almost double in $ for what ferrous I had) and also glad I didn't use more than 2 gallons of fuel and less than an hour of my time to acquire and clean everything. No more side gig curb/Craigslist shopping for me for a while, IT consulting and e-waste it is...

    Call some local scrap yards compare price quotes, then figure out how many pounds of metal and type of metal you have and go to the yard that has the best price for those items. Let us know how you did
