    I have got to get around to doing another scrap run soon as it did not get done before Christmas because of the price drop !
    The trouble is finding the best price , I find if you phone around they can vary by as much as ££££s per ton for bright within a 10 - 20 mile radius ?
    And how one yard will give £££s per ton more for house hold but £££s per ton less for swa and bright compared to the one literally next door to it .
    What are others finding the price's like for bright and house hold around the county ?

    I got £1.45 per kg yesterday for household in Leeds.

    Wish I was the plumber infront of me, should have seen the back of his van, it was like Steptoe & son. He got £2600, not bad for a man in a council van cough cough.

    Not a chance Murdoch. Looks like he did the same as us and waited after Xmas to weigh in. Think he may have been storing it for a few months, the amount of copper heaters and pipes that he had.

    I'm not knocking the guy, I'm just jealous.

    Was it Bramalls in Leeds? they always give the best prices around there. We tried Eric France once, he offered us 70p a Kg, went to Bramalls, they gave us £1.30 a KG and the bloke at Bramalls said Mr France weighs all his scrap in there. No wonder he could afford to plaster half naked girls all over advertisements around Wakefield.

    I collect a few Kebabs from the healthy eating shop tonight :)
    and the scrap man followed me in
    His price is
    Unstriped £1700 ton
    high grade £2000 ton (I think he means plumbers pipe)
    Bright wire £4650 ton

    apparently the price went down today but will be going back up over the next few days

    apparently the cash payment for scrap is being stopped in April, and his industry thinks the bottom will fall out of his business as we don't want to pay tax on our scrap money
