What Are the Scrap Metal Prices for November 2019 in the UK

Posted 27th November, 2019

LME Scrap Metal Prices

Christmas 2019 is a few short weeks away and with a general election coming before then on the 12th of December what the trading prices are doing on the London Metal Exchange?

The aluminium price has been flat for a few days now. That is after that steep drop at the beginning of the month.

The copper price has been dipping around a lot across the month with two days of growth followed by a $17 per tonne drop yesterday.


Now lead has been the metal hit the most over November. As you can see from the graph, it has been free-falling all month. Not much chance of any sort of recovery here between now and the end of the year. Not bad news for everyone though as it is undoubtedly going to make the theft of lead from church roofs less appealing.


Scrap Yard Scrap Metal Prices

As the scrap metal industry starts to wind down on the approach to Christmas what scrap prices are being offered by our local scrap yards?

It's a very competitive time of year as local scrap yards will be wanting to the end the year with record amounts of scrap in their books.
As a seller, it is more important than ever to check those prices locally before selling your scrap metal.
