  • Scrap prices

    Anybody know what scrap steel and copper are going for right now?

    I have not followed prices for some time and I am curious if prices are keeping steady, up or down.

    Should I sell or sit on it for now?

    Prices were down a few weeks ago but are back up again

    $2.85/lb for number 1 copper

    $2.38/lb for number 2 copper

    Can vary .30 to .40 cents depending where I go

      going down, I got 2.70 for #2 about 2 weeks ago. The guy said if I was there last month, I would've got $3.
      Buy cheap, buy twice.
