$36 dollars is about right. I stole my neighbors Ford F150 and only got $38 dollars for scrap aluminum.

I gotta find a new place. Found out they are a middle man and only pay half, ive been going there for years as they sell metal too, but fuck that, even new steel is overpriced and found out tgey buy from another place local, mark it up and make a buck. Big place too. Ill just drive a little further and make some money.

Only reason i do it, its better than throwing it away. Its all “dirty” metal, some mixed copper/brass and some plastic. Aluminum is usually pretty clean but depends on who i get. Some guys bitch if there is even some paint on it, i roll my eyes.

Scrap yards nation wide are holding their scrap to create a shortage so they can sell off at top dollar when demand is up. Brought 1300 of alum lathe chips and got $0.18/lb I'm sitting on all my brass and copper turnings not gonna play the game

Its the same with plastics/recycling too...our townships in nj used to break even selling recyclables. Now we have to pay to get rid of it. Its cheaper and easier to just incinerate it ir dispose of it in landfills.

in recent years it's been in a range on 120 to 170 .... remember during one of the recessions I was scrapping to keep my dump truck business alive , I was busting my ass doing boiler demolitions and only geting $60 a ton.

Got a scrapper that comes around once a month, I have about 125 lbs for him of clean steel. Not worth my time to haul it to the yard, but for him to gather up a whole truck load, it is.
