12/30/15 Scrap Price Update: Copper Prices Up?

Reported Scrap Metal prices for December 2015Good Day iScrappers!!!

With 2015 ending tomorrow we want to thank you for all of the prices that you have posted online throughout the year! We have made great strides with the iScrap App and you are the reason that we are continuing each and every day to improve your scrap metal experience.

High Copper Prices Entering New Year

In the last week not only did Santa come, but he brought with him some higher copper prices! We saw the market jump about 5 cents this week, and depending on how aggressive your scrap yard is being, you might see that change immediately.

Aluminum See Slight Climb

Aluminum has had a slight uptick as well, but not enough to see a real rise with the scrap prices…but uptick is definitely better then a downturn.

Other metals like steel and stainless steel have been relatively unchanged over the last week, we haven’t seen much movement with the Holiday Season here…and that trend will probably continue into 2016.

Have a safe and Happy New Year…we look forward to working with you all again next year! Scrap yaaaaa later.
