What are scrap metal prices?

Scrap metal prices depend on the market dynamics of each specific metal. Prices can change daily, weekly, or at a month's end, depending on the product type. Our pricing is also affected by the amount and quality of the material. Our recycling centers run loyalty programs, and can provide tips to improve your ROI to help you make more from your scrap.
