Scrap Metal Prices in Bismarck state North Dakota

Two parameters influence the cost of a pound of scrap metal in Bismarck:the quality of the secondary raw material and the average price on the market. The price list includes the demand for a certain type of scrap metal, the prices of 1 Pound of recyclables in the country and in foreign markets, as well as the popularity of a particular scrap metal among consumers. Upon the acceptance of the received goods, each batch is thoroughly checked, taking into account the quality of the recyclables. If the secondary raw material is poorly sorted, then contamination is present, the price per pound decreases.

Prices for ferrous scrap metals in Bismarck

  • The amount of ferrous metal in the batch. Companies prefer to work with large volumes, therefore, with wholesale batches, the price per ton of metal will be more profitable.
