    I just hauled in a trailer load of iron (shred) in Houston. $0.03 a pound. 3,540 # = $106.20. That is the lowest I have seen since I have been hauling in scrap metal (started in 2006).

    "As is where is". They are supposed to afford you an opportunity to view merchandise before bidding. If you do not take advantage of the inspection times, its on you.

    Steel in my area is creeping up

    I took in some shred steel yesterday and it is up to $.06 a pound. It has gone as low as $.045 and bounced around up at .005 intervals. At least it is trending the right direction. This is in Houston.
