Ron Hamilton watched as two massive materials sorters — machines with large mechanical arms tipped with magnets — dipped into a towering pile of metal debris at the Port of Albany to separate steel items from everything else. Hamilton manages the scrapyard at Ben Weitsman of Albany, a new operator in the Capital Region’s metal recycling business. And business is booming since its August opening, he said. “We have had days where we have purchased a million pounds of scrap,” he said. Prices for steel and other scrap metals have been generally strong, driven in part by increasing demand in the U.S. as the economy recovers. And that has a lot of people looking at scrap, from old cars to wire, plumbing, shell casings and almost anything made of metal, as a way to make some extra money. The port has a long history of handling scrap. One its oldest tenants, Capitol Scrap Metal, just down the road from the Weitsman operation, has been there since 1938. “We have been doing recycling long before it was popular. We have a lot of repeat customers,” said Capitol owner Burt Segel, son of founder Raymond Segel. With a customer list topping 26,000 names over the last decade, the business handles non-ferrous metals — copper, aluminum, brass and lead — but not steel. When scrap prices rise, people can get fairly creative in what they want to sell. “We have even had people come in who want to scrap pennies,” Segel said. But forget that as a way to make some quick money. “The answer is, it is not legal to scrap U.S. currencies,” Segel said. At Weitsman, which opened its $15 million facility in August, some unusual objects can show up. Like a 1968 Lincoln Continental with 38,000 miles and “not a scratch on it,” said Mark Steidle, who was running the car bailer that day. The bailer crushes cars into a compact metal rectangle. “It made me sick to my stomach to do it,” said Steidle, who keeps a photo of the car — and the cube that it became — on his cellphone. He’s also seen antique African bronze sculptures come through, along with an old tin still that was used to make liquor. As scrap, the doomed Lincoln brought about $500. Its resale value was from $7,000 in average shape to up to $20,000 in top condition, according to an online guide for the National Automotive Dealers Association. But it had to be done. “What comes into the yard as scrap has to go out as scrap. We don’t sell cars or car parts out of the yard,” said Hamilton. The Lincoln was scrapped as part of a legal requirement from an estate, he said. As many as 300 cars daily are crushed at the Albany yard, and then trucked to a massive, 10,000-horsepower shredder at the company’s Owego headquarters, where vehicles are ground into small bits of metal, glass and plastic that are separated and shipped to various mills and refiners.

Adam Weitsman, owner of the business, said he plans to install a 3,000-horsepower shredder, currently being fabricated at a plant near Buffalo, at his Albany business this spring so he can finish cars there. He also expects to start exporting scrap down the Hudson River and overseas, to Turkey, this spring for the first time. Up to now, all the scrap metal has been trucked from Albany to metal mills in the U.S. “We definitely underestimated the Albany market. Before we started, we were expecting 100, 125 customers a day. We are getting 350, 400 a day,” said Weitsman. “Prices are great for scrap now in the U.S., and it is being driven by an upswing in U.S. manufacturing.” A ton of scrap steel now pays between $312 and $386 at Weitsman, depending on its quality, he said. That’s about $100 more than it was a year ago. A staff of 18 works at Weitsman, and Hamilton said that should increase to 40 over the course of this year. The company is also in the market to buy smaller scrap companies in the Capital Region to feed its port facility. Increasing scrap exports could help the port, said port General Manager Rich Hendrick. Currently, only Rensselaer Scrap and Auto Recycling, at the port on its Rensselaer County side, uses the river to ship its scrap, while both Capitol and Weitsman truck theirs out. “If Weitsman starts shipping, it could double our scrap volume,” he said. And that means more dockage and wharfage fees for the port. The scrap market should further strengthen this year, said Joe Pickard, chief economist and director of commodities for the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries, a Washington, D.C.-based trade group that represents about 1,600 scrap companies around the world. “We are seeing a rebalancing of the U.S. economy. Some parts, like construction and automobiles, are doing better, and there is a lot of pent-up demand. All these things could translate into better market conditions this year,” Pickard said. And there is more competition for available scrap, he added, which could help push up prices. “The number of scrap metal shredders has doubled in the U.S. during the last three decades, and the capacity of those shredders is much larger.” bnearing@timesunion.com518-454-5094@Bnearing10
