    I can go somewhere else to sell them or wait to sell.

    Those are higher than most people are getting.

    I think I just fired the scrap company that picks up our scrap.

    New Rep replaces our old rep. First round of scrap pick ups he pays crackhead prices, I say nothing because most of our weight is low carbon steel(I'm just happy they pick it up). I had been dealing with the old rep for some time, He was reasonable. I didn't always ask for a quote.

    Second round of pick ups some months later, I have this new rep quote first. Have them pick it up based on the quote, receive the check a couple weeks later, crackhead prices again. Paid out 1/6th the quote.

    Call him up, tell him to slam his dick in a door. I get sorry sorry sorry i'll take care of it.....then crickets for 1.5 months. Still haven't heard from him. Feel like sky hooking this midget into the basketball hoop behind the shop.

    Fuck these scrap guys and their moms. They are the pawn shop brokers of the metalworking industry.

    I'm holding our carbide until i'm dead. They can bury me with it for what they are paying the last couple years.

    We know PT is per ton, the question is what KIND of ton, as listed in Ox's post. Do you mean 2000 lb ton?

    From the looks of this guy, I'm ass-uming his mom is wider then she is tall....But can't really hurt to ask at this point.

    If he ever shows up again I'll ask him for a pic. Who loves you baby?

    No - I for one did not git the obvious "Per Ton" (tonne?)

    I don't know that I have ever seen it written that way.

    You should remember the 80 s recession...price delivered into the yard was $2 a ton for HMS....Local scrapyard has a family running it,bought a 'cashflow' business,and have spent millions on new equiptment and EPA compliance.....she wasnt happy at my depression era stories....never happen again ...she says...Anyhoo ,they give me a good shake...hold price for a month from quote,only knock me minimal for tyres,fair weights ,and a couple of years ago the price crashed ,they held mine for 8 weeks .....Oddly ,only crowd who consistently rippoff on prices are the biggies ..starts with an S,ends with an S.

    I wonder if this wasn't maybe an anomoly, maybe caused by people playing in the commodities market or some other mass hysteria ? Tulips once brought big money, too.

    I've never got doodly for steel chips. I think I took them to the scrapyard once, then started giving them to Lamont with the doors roped onto his '62 Chevvy no-springs pickup. Give him good barrels, get back beaters. Oh well.

    Aluminum chips were a little better but not much. Wasn't until you got to brass and bronze that prices were enough to get excited about.

    One day it will turn around.
    Not if it was artificially raised in the first place

    I don't think that hardly any metals are traded on the commodity markets.

    Yes?

    The price held at $400 plus for the best part of six months....I scrapped everything in the yard,at home and anywhere else I get my hands on scrap without paying.When you get "scrappie fever" you start putting good stuff in to get a 20 ton binfull....Half the excavator fleet went for scrap ,and the lot would have gone down to one machine left to load.....When the price crashed overnight ,some of the biggies were caught.....the rep from Metalcorp said they had a one week loss of $ 7 million.,and although it was processed ,they dudded me a whole big bin load ,20 ton approx ,for which I got zero ,cause they claimed it was lost in transit.

    I might have posted scrap monster earlier but here it is anyway. They list almost anything scrap related and news. Market prices for metals and scrap. I look at it to see what is happening if I am considering taking is some scrap, or just keep adding to it...

    Scrap Metal Prices, Recycling News, Scrap Yard, Sell Scrap Online
