Some people don't like to scrap steel due to the low price but I feel as you don't have to breakdown much on it, it is worth wile to scrap!

I have a 16ft flatbed I keep my steel on until I get a full load. If I arrange everthing right, I can get about 2 tons on it, which definitely makes the trip worth it. Plus I can keep it on there until I get a full load, so it is not strewn everywhere looking like a mess. All I do is hook my truck to it, haul it down to the yard, bring it back empty and park it until I have another full load. Plus I can process the appliances right on the trailer, removing all the non-ferrous from it, then pushing it right next to the other processed steel at the front.

First load to the scarp yard ever.
Mostly old bicycles and some steel car rims.
They classed it as metal/tin and had me unload it with all the old appliances,
They pay $50 a ton for that sort of stuff. Not sure if it’s a good price, was interesting though.

Took a load of scrap steel in today. I had 4 old broken down bikes on this load. They said that I could not turn in the bikes as they had the tires on them! Never had this problem before... Price of steel up another 1/2 cent to .07 lb. 450 lbs = $31.50

Does the yard you go to have different rates for metal?
The one out here told me they pay from $50 to $150 a ton.
I had bike frames and steel car rims almost 700 ponds and only paid $17.00 Canadian.
I don’t mean to complain just confused, unless that type of metal is considered crap.

The metal I bring in is probably classified as sheet steel.

Sheet Iron Scrap (Sheet Tin)
Sheet Iron (Sheet Tin) shall consist of miscellaneous iron & steel and may contain galvanized sheet , painted & coated materials, whole machinery & equipment containing other metals provided Iron is the main content.

I know canadan prices are not that great from other posts. But you should find out what other metals are paying alum, copper, brass...

Maybe they just pay less for the steel.

You should have gotten more!

Scrap dental crowns:

Gold: $139.27
Silver: $1.61
Platinum: $5.50
Palladium: $63.78

Grand total after assay fees: $199.66

Not sure how many crowns I had in there. I think I guestimated around 20 or so.


Take this job and shove it. I don't want to work here no more...

Ya they rated my metal along those lines.
As far as other metals the card they gave me to bring to the office had a small
list showing the percentage they pay for higher end metals it ranged from 87% 92%
im guessing they mean percent of the market value.
Thanks for your reply

Finally my computer will let me access this thread! Anyways, earlier this year I chopped up a boiler I got for free from my grandpa and got $440.50, recently I scrapped some brass and copper I got from him for free and got $382. right now I have about 250 pounds of brass and 20 pounds of copper to scrap, I'm waiting till I get 300 pounds of brass and then I can get a premium. Most of the brass that I have now is from valves and I took valve handles of about 90 valves and the handles sell on ebay for about a buck each. after this load there is plenty of steel and alum to scrap.

Hi pennyante,

I'm actually a dentist

I have been scrapping for years though. It's how I help pay for a little extra beer money while in school. At my office I scrap lead foils, x-ray films, dental crowns, casting, clasps, amalgam, office paper, plastic, old dental instruments, you name it.

I have heard of a couple programs where you can hand out envelopes and whoever sends in material you get a cut of the money. I think Garfield Refineries does that program.

Otherwise, I would just go around to dental offices and ask if you could have all their extracted teeth. Dentists routinely save extracted teeth because dental students need them to study anatomy or they practice root canals on them. Most dentists just throw the crowns away....no idea why...

Hope this helps! Feel free to send me a PM if you have anymore questions.

Tom

So dentists will actually just give you the teeth if you ask? Isn't there a certain way that they need to be disposed because of health reasons? I just want to make sure before I start going to dentist offices,I don't want to get any strange looks. lol

Tin went up Friday. From 85/t to 100/t. Cars up to $130/t

1000lbs of appliances/grills(tin) = $50
740 lbs of #1 steel(160/ton)= $59
9 car batteries @ $4 a peice = $36
20 lbs stainless @ $.35 = $7

Talked to the guy who runs the scale at the local yard today. He said that prices are going up tomorrow. Couldn't tell me how much but he said it should be substantial. I kind of wish I would have waited but the bills needed to be paid and I was standing on a decent stash for me.
