It's been low for a long time. What do you hear about scrap prices?

Check on scrapmonster.com for current market. A month ago, my last load of prepared #1 I only got 50 a ton...but saved my marriage.


guilty of white privilege : for 55 years I had the privilege to get up and go to work...to help feed the folks that wanted to sleep in.

Scrap follows the price of fuel.


I was young and bashful back then.

You can't find an old used cultipacker or parts for one around my area because of the last surge in scrap prices. Every piece of equipment not being used got sold as scrap. I ended up buying a new cultipacker, don't want to do that again soon.

That's a fancy new one. Jake' is an old Western Land Roller. A lot of chilled cast in all of them. The weight is to break clods.

5 or 8 years ago when scrap briefly hit $300/ton locally, a banker friend said "Who knew that to clean up the county all we needed was $300 scrap?" People were pulling old cars and equipment out of hollers and fence rows and river bottoms to haul to the scrap yard. BUNCH-O-Stuff went down the road on trailers to be scrapped.

Same thing happened in the place I grew up.

As to the rollers, I'd like to pull two, we have a squadron hitch from corn planters. Too much scratch for twenty acers a year.

I’ve dealt with selling scrap a few times in my life. Back in fall of 2010 or 2011, I sold a bunch of scrap metal I picked up between work and the farm we deer hunted on. One day while out hunting, I tripped over a bunch of copper wiring that had been buried. I pulled it up, and sold it and kept the feeders filled with corn from that money.

Scrap price is a barometer on the economy.

Parts store used to give $15 for an 'old' battery.

Didn't have to buy a new one.


You can guess what happened when the local meth heads figured that one out!

I work at a power company. It’s incredible the danger a meth head will put himself in to swipe .35 cents worth of copper.

My uncle had his sprinkler heads stolen, from his wheel lines a few years ago! They caught the thieves at the scrap yard! Uncle had called the scrap yards in our town and neighboring towns, telling them to be on the lookout for around 500 brass sprinkler heads! The thieves were a father and two sons! Piece of crap, raising more pieces of crap! Scrap in this state now requires ID to scrap over 50$, worth of material.
