    Price for Alloy Recycling

    I was told today the Alloy chips I keep to resell because I dont want them to end up in a hole in the ground were worth $0.40kg and any other alloy was $1.40kg.

    I was surprised it wasnt the other way around. In fact, I was really surprised there was a difference at all?

    What kind of "alloy" is it? That term covers a lot of ground.

    Did you keep them separate, or was the low price for mixed chips?

    Re: Price for Alloy Recycling

    I had 831 lbs of 6061 and 7075 chip, in 8 barrels with a tare of 40 lbs per barrel.
    They rang me up as .25c a pound for "aluminum turnings" (2020)

    I separated the mix and brought pure 7075 and they rang me up for .46c a pound (2021)

    I think the difference is insignificant

    Re: Price for Alloy Recycling

    I don’t know how much it costs to recycle the alloy. I’m for ecology, for recycling, but I don’t know who and how much it costs to recycle non-ferrous metal. I have to ask a friend who works in birmingham bin collection times, I think he knows. They recycle stuff, and for sure have the info about what they can and cannot recycle. Although it will be the price for recycling alloy in England, not for where you’re from, I guess I won't help you a lot.
