price of scrap metal can make you money

Price of Scrap Metal

The price of scrap metal fluctuates and is influenced by several factors. It is particularly affected by the price of virgin metals, cost of energy and production, and supply and demand.

Metal prices, like all commodities, change regularly. For example, copper prices rise during an increase in home building. This is because builders need large amounts of copper pipe and wiring to build new homes. Inversely, copper prices fall during a housing crisis, rebounding when the housing market recovers.
