  • Scrap steel prices up

    Just got a message from my scrap yard that the're paying $195 tonne for scrap steel this month.
    It's a great price, maybe metals are on the up?

    Is that for light gauge or HMS?

      Pressing steel, so light gauge?

      Last week they were paying $170 tonne, was going to take a load on friday but missed out
      and was going today expecting $150 tonne.

      But then got an sms saying $195 tonne and $1.65 kg for aluminium wheels.
      loaded up the van and took it this arvo'
      I don't get wheels but that's a good price for alloy.

      I did ask the guy if prices were up and they weren't, it's just their own promotion.
      seems $160 tonne is the standard around here.

        Light gauge up here is about $140-$150 a tonne. $195 would've been great.

          Then again I can remember not that long ago when light gauge was $20 tonne.

            Around me there's probably 6 or 7 scrap yards that I know of, would be more.
            so that's probably why one has upped the price for a while.
            i'll be taking in non-ferrous in a couple weeks,, i'll probably call a few to get best price.

            $20 a tonne? that must of been a while ago.

              That would've been 8-9 years back.

                  That's pretty good. Last week I was getting $150/tonne for light gauge. I've got 3 bins to go in this week, so we'll see what we get.

                    Aussie dollar may be the reason.
                    It's mostly exported overseas, good time for it.

                      Might pay to call nearby scrap yards and see what other's are paying, $50 a tonne difference is just too much to ignore.
