    I was at $120/ton 3 weeks ago and dropped to $90 when I took a tiny run in last Thursday.. so I suppose it is!
    I'm so into scrapping.. When my Steel Toe Boots Wear out, I cut the Steel out of them and recycle the Toe!

    We finally climbed UP to $60 a ton last month. I got rid of it all before it dropped again. It's back down to $50 now.

    Exclamation

    $0.03/lb ( $60/ton ) at the closest 2 yards.
    Been at that price for a long time.

    Note: cardboard is worth more $ now-a-days !

    People still take in shred? I've been using it to hold down tarps..

    Who knew there was value in it these days.

    Anyone buy a anchor made of various pieces of scrap?

    I'm not picking up anything that's mostly tin. Its just left overs from ac units, computers, water coolers, microwaves etc.. Occasionally some one will drop off a water heater, W/D or fridge when I'm not home I just strip it and throw it on the trailer. haul it in only when its full. Once a month or so. its either that or PAY to take it to the dump.......

    Prepared iron $30/ ton
    Unprepared is $15/ ton includes Vehicles
    Shred......no value; you can drop it off but won't get paid.

    I bought a running Mazda with a battery today for $30. The tires go back to the owner. Has electrical drain on the battery and tranny shifter sticks at times.

    Vermont (or my section of it) is coming in at about $.025/# but that was from a load a couple of weeks ago. We have another going in, tomorrow morning, and it may have dipped further.

    Our yard seems to use "shred" and "lite iron" interchangeably.
