Scrap Copper Prices Per Kilo

In the United Kingdom scrap copper prices per kilo are regularly changing from dealer to dealer, in fact you can receive almost twice as much if you carefully select who you take your copper to. The best way to ensure that you get a good price for your metal is to clean the copper before taking it to a dealer. Doing this will ensure that you don't get charged any type of fee for the scrap yard needing to clean the metal before they can then sell it on again. This sounds like a time consuming and difficult job, but it isn't and will only take you an hour or so, depending on how much scrap copper you have. Another thing to note is that you will also get a better price if you separate out all of the different grades of copper you have and remove all pieces of additional materials from it. Essentially you want to be taking only pure copper to be sold, this again is ultimately saving the scrap dealer a job and in return they will offer you a very favourable price for your metal. If you are lucky, you may already have some pure copper and this is the most valuable type you can possibly have. The most valuable types of copper are the purest forms and this can be regularly found in wiring, wires, plates or sheeting.


Scrap Lead Prices Per Kilo

Lead is another one of the most highly valued types of scrap metal that you can find in or around your home. Scrap lead prices are truly dependent on the quality of material that you have. If you have lead in its purest form then you can definitely expect a good price from any scrap yard. However, unfortunately it is hard for anybody to find a significant quantity of this rare scrap metal. In addition to this, whenever you do find a large amount of scrap lead then you should take care as it is a very toxic metal that can easily contaminate the surrounding environment. I would personally not recommend anybody go out of their way to hunt for this metal as a result of this, but if you decide to do so then make sure you check out our price list and get a very good price for it.


Scrap Aluminium Prices Per Kilo

Similarly for scrap aluminium prices, having a very pure piece of metal is highly valued by scrap metal dealers and so if you can source some of this you should make sure you take it to be sold. Pure aluminium is a very valuable type of metal and can be sold for an awful lot of money, however it is very hard to find it in this form these days as it is almost always bound to something else. One other key note about scrap aluminium prices is that they change quite substantially from one day to another. The volatility of these prices is driven by supply and demand across the country, in towns or cities with industry heavy demands you can expect to receive more cash for your metal. As always, it is key to check these prices before taking your scrap aluminium anywhere to be sold. Scrap dealers will accept a wide range of different forms of aluminium including cans, cables, cabling, car wheels, car radiators, sheets, casings, plates and a variety of aluminium based alloys too.

Scrap Steel Prices Per Kilo

Scrap steel prices are actually relatively stable across the entirity of the UK, you will always be able to get a good price for it because it is often in a very pure form, as with many types of ferrous metals. Likewise the demand for scrap steel is always there and it is easy to smelt it down to a reusable form. The most commonly found types of steel are scrap stainless steel and plain scrap steel, these are both utilised in the foundations of houses throughout the country. Due to steel being a fairly heavy material it is recommended that you hire a skip for your house so that you can easily transport bulk parts of the metal to your local scrap dealer. In terms of what prices to expect for this common metal material, scrap stainless steel prices are almost always higher than typical metal, this is simply due to it being much more difficult to refine.

Scrap Metal Dealers

Scrap metal dealers always generally provide a selection of prices that they will accept for each type of metal and there various types of grades of it. Consequently it is impossible to set a distinct price for each type of metal for a whole country, the prices of scrap metal are determined by supply and demand. Despite this I have provided a list of scrap metal prices below:
