    Todays prices.

    I just called the scrap yards near me and the price has went up so it's time to get the torch out of mothballs.

    Shredder $180.00 Net ton.

    5 ft Foundry $235.00 Net ton.

    2 ft Plate & Structural $305.00 Net ton.



    Electric motors $.15 pound.

    How much higher could they go for dealer pricing? What's the best shred price you have gotten and what year was it?
    Better than the dump!

    I am not really an iron guy so I believe 2008 and 2012 iron was higher. Not sure how much higher dealer pricing is, I am assuming $5-$10 per ton higher.

    I deal with same company, different yard. Prices are higher for APA's yard because one of thier shredders is there and they sell to a mill next door with rail between the yards.

    Tier for me is $19 to $30 a gt higher. Best scale price I've seen for shred was probably in 2012. This was before APA's yard was open. It was $275 / gt. I believe his yard is about $40 to $60 per gt higher than mine.
