    wow thats low, still holding at $180 to $200 T for light iron and tin here. But you are right it is gettin scarce, I live in a rural community on a one block street, and still see an average of 3 scrap trucks and trailers go by every day.

    every few years it seems that the bottom falls out of the scrap prices.

    if you hang in there during the tough times you will see your competition dissipate.

    and if you are ramped up at full capacity when the prices return you will cash in during that time.

    it feels like these days that we are coming up on another price drop across the board.
