September Heat For Scrap Metal

Posted: September 2, 2014


It always seems like there is pressure to get more and more scrap metal into your truck, and we can’t blame you. With expenses going up from gas to cell phones, and maybe even that vacation fund going a little more. A lot of our customers used to do scrap metal as a part time gig, they had some leftover cut-offs of copper from jobs and heard that they could get paid some money for it.

About 15 years ago, when the prices for scrap were less then a third of what they are now, scrap was much easier to come by and there were a lot less people involved. But with the internet, higher scrap prices, YouTube, and other ways to learn, scrap metal has become a full time job for many people and a part time hobby for many more.
