Scrap Metal Prices

World markets are important to the scrap metal industry. In addition to supply & demand of scrap metal, global trade in metal commodities heavily influences the value of scrap metal prices within the U.S. and can result in scrap prices changing on a day-to-day basis.

Frequent price fluctuations apply mostly to non-ferrous metals (“NF”) such as Copper, Aluminum, Nickel (Stainless Steel), Lead, Tin & Zinc. These commodities are traded daily in two important terminal markets: The London Metal Exchange (LME) and the New York Commodity Exchange (“Comex”).

Trading methods for scrap iron & steel are different than that of NF scrap, however, similar to NF metals, market volatility can produce frequent price swings for commonly found ferrous metal (steel scrap), such as Light Iron, Cast Iron & heavy steel grades, including pipe, angle iron, beams & plate.

Other factors that influence what scrap metal is worth includes a scrap dealer’s proximity to rail lines, domestic mills & major shipping ports, competition between local & regional scrap buyers and various domestic & international economic conditions.
