Scrap metal grading and its effect on prices

Metals have different classifications that make them a higher or lower grade, this will affect the price you receive for your scrap metal.

Grade 1

The metal has no associated alloys within the material. There should be no corrosion associated with the scrap metal and it should be of a certain size and diameter.

Grade 2

Metals are generally made from alloy with the primary metal being the metal you want to scrap. i.e. Grade 2 copper is generally 99% pure, while Grade 1 copper is 100% pure.

Metals must be clean of any foreign contamination to reach the highest level grading (getting the best scrap metal price).

How to get current scrap metal prices?

The London Metal Exchange (LME) gives an indication of metal prices in dollars for the day as well as historical data. We would always recommend calling your local scrap yard for the daily prices.


When will scrap metal prices go up?

Scrap metal prices in the UK are affected by many external markets. Exports of cheaper Chinese steel have historically been blamed for pushing down the UK scrap prices. The Turkish TSI index is a key benchmark of global trade and although in recent years there have been increases it’s not where it was back in 2007-2008.
