    When you figure it works out to $1000 some months... seems I need to shop my scrap around.

    Is there any where a fella could check to see what the mills are actually paying by grade? (Canada preferable)

    This is from the most recent cheat sheet that I got a week ago from my local yard.
    I ass_u_me that this is for heavy melt, and not chips. (???)

    The guy that hauls my aluminum scrap tells me if I briquette it he won't even haul it as it has to be ground back into chips so they can make sure it is not full of stuff other than aluminum. We make around 1000# - 2000# of chips a month and .10 to .12 is about all their worth, he charges me $500. to haul them about every 6 months.

    I was offered $.08/lb today for aluminum turnings. I was shocked - hardly worth hauling a ton for that. Solid scrap at .25/lb. What are you getting?

    Prices always seem to go real low around holidays, probably best to wait a few weeks and see if it goes up as mills get rolling again.

    If we wind up on an active war footing with Iran, we can count on some spike in material costs - perhaps that will bleed into scrap too. After all, those bombs are made from iron and steel, right? Maybe the drones need lighter Al bombs.

    I’d have to look for it, but I’m pretty sure last I sent scrap carbide it was $14/lb.

    Ouch is right!

    Didn’t take long to find it! $13.75/lb was what I got in 2014.

    Crazy numbers! I don't understand why Al is so low, shouldn't imported material be going up due to tariffs? Is US production and recycling so high that it's putting a damper on imports? But that should mean demand for scrap.

    That, or demand has tanked. But that would indicate reduced consumer activity, and that's not happening. ??

    Here's an article from September '19 that gives some insight: Out of balance - Recycling Today

    Pricing is subject to regional demand. I haven't priced local yards for a while, but I'm sure it's a lot lower than $.31/lb. Probably in the low $.10's.

    My brother has a semi truck hopper, not quite 53’, but whatever that length is. They have the whole bay piled full of crap because the dumpster is over flowing. He said the last time they hauled it he owed them $150 for fuel. Usually he said he nets $200-$300 on a full one.
