    In case y'all haven't been following the markets, Fe has come up 50% in the last 3 months.

    If it makes it a little higher, I may be tempted to turn mine in...

    Not here. Still $100/ton for clean steel about 2 weeks ago. It hasn't been much above that since 2010.

    I guess it's good to have mini mills all around you? (me)

    There's a wire mill in Bartonville. That's 5 miles. There's another in Sterling. That's 1.5 hour drive.

    Doesn't seem to help. I suppose with Cat and other heavy industry there's just too much supply. The yard I take my stuff to keeps a pile of steel chips 5 times the size of my house on hand at any given time.

    While keeping scrap metal out of land fills is one reason to always re-cycle, another is that re-cycleing does reduce the cost of the new material we have to buy. I'm in favor of that.

    Given the insanity going on with aluminum sheet right now, I would imagine that aluminum scrap is about to rise.

    Step one : Put it in a 55 gallon barrel sideways in the bed of your truck, keep tailgate open.
    Step two : Drive up hill
