Though overall the national scrap metal price is up less than one percent there was slight growth in four of five zones. We can see on the zone map that Zones 1 through 4 raised slightly. We expected the recent natural disasters to have more of an effect on Zone 3 this month but even with the influx of steel hitting Houston scrapyards the region has only increased 1%. Zone 5 also fell another 3% after dropping 7.5% last month. We can potentially see more growth in the upcoming months as scrappers continue to evaluate their capacity filled lots after getting back on their feet.
