Scrap Metal Price


Arable Farmer
Anyone taken any scrap recently?

Took some this afternoon:

Mixed farm scrap (steel) £130/t

Copper tank/pipe £3500/t

Batteries £500/t

How does that compare?


Was told by the fabricators that rent a workshop on the farm that the price of scrap would soon fall, but I can't quite remember the reason.:facepalm:

was thinking of getting shot of some, will think again now it was nearly 2 years ago the last proper clear out we had and got £215 for heavy and £190 for light. if its only at around £130 it can stay in a heap and appreciate in value or ill get the string and sticky tape out and see what I can make.

The pikeys aren't nicking scrap at the moment, so I assume the price isn't too special, but I really need to have a clear up of some stuff I've stockpiled.

take the money now as when the price goes up it may get 'borrowed in the night' and you will have nothing to show for it , not even a waste transfer note
