    Took in a load of shred today. Mostly old computer / network cases, some other metal my mother had and wanted out of the yard, etc. Total weight was 1700 lbs. Got a check for a whole $68.00.

    I will be taking a small load this week. It seems I will be in for a pleasant surprise.

    Never been to that one. Denver Scrap Metal Recycling was 110 per ton Sunday, Atlas in Aurora was 105 Saturday... I hope they both haven't gone down. I havn't been collecting much or selling any since Sunday...

    Rochester IN, $155 a ton.
    Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time who never loses any. It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing.

    My area is terrible. Scrap prices are so much lower than other places. Problem is, this yard is the only one around my area that pays. So I suppose they can charge whatever they want. Shred is down to $70/ton where I'm at. It's terrible. I only take it in because I get so much of it. I end up throwing in a lot of really dirty stuff with lots of plastic just to make some more weight.

    Our appliances are paying $ 25 a ton and tin is all the way up to $ 50 a ton. I expect it will go lower because the scrap yard is running out of storage space.
    As a scrapper I hope to return more to society than I use.

    The 720 pound ticket was from office furniture and file cabinets from one business 4 miles from the scrapyard from a 10 day old Craigslist Ad.

    It's down to $100/ton for scrap at Atlas last I checked.

    Denver Scrap Metal charges a 3$ "Environmental fee" for any payout $20 or higher, doesn't matter what you have on your truck, but they do take things some other yards don't ex. circuitboards.

    Denver Scrap Metal Recycling down to 100/ton, as you can see it was 110/ton yesterday.


    Guess I need to call first from now on.

    There was someone there today being very loud in the lobby on the phone claiming he had over $200 worth of copper/non-ferrous, and then saying he only got $13 for it. Hmmmm.... yeah... something is wrong, not with the yard, but that guy thinking he had that much non-ferrous. That yard pays the least for non-ferrous, but not THAT much less than everyone else LOL.

    That may be the reason they are not paying very much if that is a common practice in that part of the country. Yards get to know their customers and remember those that are respectful and ethical in their business practices. Another thing to consider is that the prices quoted on the forum range from the public (board) price to the price given to special customers. Some yards only have one price tier and others have multiple tiers. The increments between tiers also differs from yard to yard. To compare prices across the country you need to know if they are giving board prices or their price. When a member posts their receipt, you know the price they are getting. Some members only quote the board price because they do not want to disclose their business practices. When you study the forum you will know who is quoting what and a general comparison can be made.

    Expect prices to go lower as yards, smelters, and foundries are plugging up. Florence could reduce prices even more with extra metal that will move to the front of the pipeline. Damage to foundries, smelters, and ports will reduce the flow of metal toward the east coast. Even after the damage from the storm has been dealt with, we will have a back log of metal in the pipeline. Just my guess.

    DFW today. 3 cents/pound on 660 pounds. Thankfully I was already going that way to get a new bottom refractory made for my fireplace.
