Current Scrap Metal Prices at Portland Iron & Metal, Inc. as of Friday, Jan 6, 2018

                 Open   Monday – Friday 8 – 4:30PM

We buy all consumer scrap on a 2000# Net Ton increment, because most people think in terms of Net Ton, rather than Gross Ton (which is 2240#).  Some other scrap yards quote GT and it can be confusing.  We have provided both pricing for comparison.

 – Effective July 1, 2014 the Michigan Scrap Metal Theft Bill(PA 99 of 2014 & HB 4593)  requires all scrap purchases of Copper/Coated Copper Wire, Air Conditioning whole/parts and Catalytic Converters of greater than the cumulative total of $25 per visit/per day be held for three days.   The check must then be mailed to the address on your ID card.  Checks cannot be picked up or sent to a PO Box.

In order to sell scrap metals you must meet the following:  Over 16 years of age, Photo ID, Fingerprint, Vehicle License Plate number, Personal and Vehicle Picture, Signature, Photo and Certification of Ownership are all required to sell scrap metal.     Anyone with a Felony conviction of Theft or Conversion CANNOT sell scrap metal.
