Weekly What’s Update: Spring Is On The Way

spring time scrappingHey iScrappers!

With the Super Bowl and the NFL season over with it is time to get focused on the spring weather and hoping that things really heat up. We hope that many of you are dealing with the snow as best as possible and that you are able to find some scrap laying around.

We know that during the winter months it stinks because so much scrap is hidden under the snow, but we know that the bad weather will create a lot of scrap in the spring season.

The prices on copper may be climbing a little bit, but with so many up and down drops recently you should not be shocked if you don’t see an increase at the yard scale right now.

Outlooks on pricing are grim right now, especially with the winter here and many projects on hold and many countries figuring out what they demand will be in the busier time of the year, the spring and summer.

The steel prices have continued to drop and in the last week we have seen a $10-15 per ton drop with at least $30-40 more coming off in the upcoming weeks according to reports.

That’s it for this week, as always, let us know what we can do and we will be ready to get more scrap information over to you.
