Big price differences here between yards. Last week, called 3 yards located with 40 minutes of my house. Light iron prices were 2.2, 3.5 and 4 cents a pound. Checked 2 of the big players and their prices at ther yards were 3 (sims new haven, ct) and 5.6 (
Weitsman / upstate shredding @port of albany).
I just took in a load this morning and got .0325/lb. Would have waited, but the wife wanted the yard cleaned up some more.
$.03 lb. Tucson AZ today

Thankfully, I don't do much metal collecting.
The local yard just lowered to $25/Ton here. I don't know what it is in Billings- there is no way that the trip would be worthwhile.

Got $45 a ton yesterday, Called today and now $40! As I have said before at these prices the shred's not gonna be too clean! LOL
I got good intel last week that steel should have reached it's bottom. A climb will be very slow as everyone that lost money on the dropping market will have to recoup before they climb, or as they climb.
local markets will fluctuate, if the mill your scrap is going to has not picked up orders, your price will stay down or even slip some until things get rolling.
I saw a SS DW the other night and was going to go back to get it, but it was late and I decided it wasn't worth the trouble. In the 10 cents a pound day I would have carried it on my back.
Working on cleaning out the shop so I can move one of the benches so I can install an AC to cool the shop in the summer. I grabbed EVERYTHING! I wanted to empty the place as much as possible and boy howdy. Enjoy....
