I took in a pickup box trailer load of small "prepared" scrap on Thursday. The trailer was not even full and I had 3480 lbs. $.10 per pound for prepared scrap and $.075 for unprepared. The yards here pay less for "light" scrap IE tin, wire, sheet metal.... If you have light scrap mixed in with heavy the one yard will pay the "light" scrap price... They are known to be crooks....

You got 186.00 for 1.56 metric tons of scrap.

I did the conversions and that comes to 173 US dollars per US ton (2000 lbs)

So your prices are comparable to ours, depending on what part of the US you are located. Those scrap yards closer to the coasts will pay more as they are closer to the ports where the scrap is loaded on ships to take to China. Whereas those of us further inland will get paid less because the scrap yards have further to haul to the ships.

The only 'good' stuff on this load was what you see on top. The rest was a load of old steam piping/tubing completely rusted out. The guy actually lifted it off my trailer and straight into the lorry for the boat. They have a baler just beside the dock!. Something that surprised me was the huge pile of rust, they had stacked in the yard, yes, I said rust, just fine powder rust. Now who would buy that? and what does it come back as? Sam
