Scrap Metal Prices in June 2013

Posted: June 26, 2013

Morning Scrap Metal Followers!

Here we are Wednesday morning, hump day if you will, and we are hustling like always. With June 2013 almost over for scrap metal buyers and sellers, it is crazy to think that half of the year has disappeared. With the 4th of July next week, we are hoping that the summer projects are starting to pick up and you are staying cool. 

Make sure that you are drinking plenty of water, staying hydrated, and wearing sunscreen. We know that some of you scrap metal collectors are tough, but make sure that you are always doing the right thing.

So….scrap metal prices in June 2013 have taken a hit…bad. While there has not been one solid day where the prices have drastically dropped, we have really seen a bit of a decline that has not stopped recently. From copper to steel and now gold, all metals have taken a hit and we expect to see a little more of that in the coming weeks and months.

The scrap metal prices in June 2013 are not what most people want, but in my option the scrap metal prices in June 2013 are still VERY high when you compare to historic levels. 

Make sure that you always go to our Update Scrap Metal Prices Page to see the current prices on copper, brass, and other scrap metals.

At Rockaway Recycling we know that it hurts to have prices drop, but stayed tuned for more information on the scrap metal prices in June 2013.
