Today’s Scrap Metal Prices
Raleigh Scrap Metal Recycling


Scrap Metal Prices for steel look little changed and possibly slightly down this month.  World markets are in clear flux for pricing and since literally what happens in China effects prices right here in Raleigh, North Carolina, NC, we at Raleigh Metal Recycling, do our best to deal with these changing dynamics.  As we write this, ferrous prices have not stabilized for the month.  The good news is two weeks ago, there was word that markets were down across the board for August, but not that may be only for select products.  Here is why.  There no question the U.S. is doing better, but of course too slowly.  Auto sales are up, home sales and home prices are up, jobs are being created, but with all that, as for steel, the U.S. only produces about 6% of the world’s steel and China produces about 47%.  Significant amounts of scrap metal from the U.S. goes to China.  China was growing at 11-12+ in recent years and now is growing at about 7%.  When they slow growth in the use of scrap metal, prices do not go up.  Related Europe is in a true recession, as were we years ago.

Even with the above, we at Raleigh Recycling are always work had to have great prices and services.

Copper Scrap Metal Prices

Copper prices are down very significantly from 2011.  For those of us in the Recycling business that has hurt.  Why are prices down? Copper is a great product and used in many industries.  As with Steel though, China uses about half of the world’s copper.  The copper they use is not only used in all the construction in China, but it is used in the iPads, TV’s, Computers and Appliances that are made in China and come back to the U.S. as well as are shipped around the world.  Again, with China slowing and Europe in a recession, prices are down.  Copper has an interesting Nick Name “Dr. Metal”  The price of copper is an indication of the health of the global economy.  If you want to get an indication of copper scrap metal prices, go to and watch the price change as copper is traded by brokers around the world.  We have great copper scrap metal prices per pound.


Catalytic Converters

Yes we buy them, but only from people and companies that are in the business of repairing, replacing, removing them.  Sorry, if you replaced your own catalytic converter, even if you have a receipt, we cannot buy it.  This is due to North Carolina laws.
