Mother’s Day, Scrap Metal, and More!

Posted: May 13, 2013

Good Monday Morning to You Scrappers!

We hope that first and foremost EVERYONE treated their mothers with the upmost respect and (with flowers too!) that they could have this weekend. I will give a shout out to my Mom who has always been the best.

Copper Prices seem to be holding on to the May rise that we saw last week, and today 5/13/13 (May 13, 2013) the scrap copper prices seem to be hanging on. Here are some of the scrap copper and brass prices that we are paying at Rockaway Recycling:

Bare Bright- $2.95 per lb.
Copper Tubing- $2.52-$2.72 per lb.
Brass- $1.65 per lb.
Aluminum- $0.40-$0.65 per lb.

The steel prices have taken a large hit lately, so don’t be surprised on that note at all. We are also excited to announce that we are have our bi-yearly customer appreciation day this year on June 22, 2013. We have named our event, Rock 4 Kids and you can see the postcard here by Clicking Here.

Any other questions on scrap copper, scrap steel, or anything scrap metal related just go to our Contact Page and we will get back to you quickly!
