In the January 15, 2016 edition of wastedive.com, Arlene Karidis composed a story titled ‘Devalued scrap metal prices continue to reduce supply for recyclers’ with the following highlights: “Scrap metals such as steel, copper, aluminum and brass, have fallen 65% in value since late 2014, and many are hoping for a market turnaround. At Pacific Steel & Recycling and others they’ve seen a 50% to 55% reduction in what comes their way. Patrick Kons, Pacific’s VP of Operations, says they are down to (7) employees and have halted production at two other facilities. Steve Moltzan, owns a Great Falls company that sells auto components and says auto bodies are at their lowest price point in over 30 years.
China’s flailing economy and drop in scrap import, a stronger U.S. dollar deterring export, and overproduction of new ore have all had an effect with this trend. US scrap metal exports dropped 4.7% in the 1st half of 2015 and recyclers and those who sell commodities are feeling the squeeze. Mr. Kons anticipates a turnaround, saying it took 14 months for prices to fall so far, and it may take much longer for them to come back. His recycling scrap yard is open & ready amid these global commodities with cyclical prices.” The article is available in its entirety at this link.
