Scrap steel price at Blackfoot Metals in Calgary is $30 a ton as of today.
Buddy ray is getting $40.....time to go home.
They say they are having a hard time getting any foundry to purchase scrap.

So much for that robust recovery Ive been hearing about since 2009...

Something to do with " dont piss on my leg and telling me its raining.."

I think I heard earlier this week, that the worlds market aggregate since August was down about 25%. Dont suppose that would have anything to do with it.

I took a 95 GMC Van, that I packed full of scrap in about a week ago for $70 a ton USD. Didnt do if for the money, did it just to see it leave, been here a little to long, now I need to find another garbage can.

Update--
new price as of today is $10/ton, and any trucks on the road not delivered by noon today will not be accepted. All future loads will not be accepted until further notice. This applies all the way east to Winnipeg.
Further notice is expected in 2 years. Seriously.

All these people who got laid off, are going nuts incorporating and going into business. His wife's registry business has had the socialist crooks in gov't raise the incorporation rates from $22 to $58 and birth certificates from $18 to $45. That is her cost, so incorporating now cost the customer $90+. Things are looking up, with the now mandated 15 buck minimum wage.

Looks like Northern Mi is $30 NT for steel Tin, but car bodies are $80 NT. Short steel $120 GT.

Prices are a wee bit better out here. There's a big scrap operation just down the road from our shop and right now they're paying $50 a ton for "prepared" steel (thicker sections less than 4' in length). Mixed scrap (smaller angle, channel, cast, etc.) is $40 a ton and any sheet (appliances, cars, etc.) is $30--a far cry for the $240-$250 we were getting 2-3 years ago...

Historically, the $200+ was really no more than an anomaly. Seems to me that $85-$150 is normal ( for tin/car bodies ), although you're probably talking CN, and Im talking USD.

But Id have to agree, at the current price, its there way of saying, " please done bring us any scrap ! "

What Id really like to see, is the price of new steel fall proportionally...
