Scrap Metal Update: Copper Prices Dwindling?

Hey Scrappers! While you’re busy sorting out scrap metal to sell it to a scrap metal recycle station, we bring an update on current copper prices. This will help you get the right value for your copper metal scrap.

 Copper price update-
Past week saw copper prices move up by a penny or two. Expert analysts’ reports that we have studied reveal copper prices in the impending months to decrease. News are around about one of the largest global copper mining company is going to lay off 85k workers. This represents 60% of their workforce. These events fabricate the global copper market’s diminishing statistics. However, that does not mean you should hold on to your scrap metal, as the prices can further reduce. Therefore, it is better to sell your meal scrap now and earn the moolah out of nothing.

 Other metal scraps price update
Steel prices seem to remain consistent. However ensure that you call up and load your scrap metal in bulk in the trucks. This is because many scrap yards are going to declare minimums for purchase. This means that a particular scrap yard will only accept your scrap metal if it weighs a minimum number as per the scrap yard’s requirements. Now this is a good news too as now you can get rid of all the useless metal scrap at once and earn significant cash in return!
Gold on the other hand has fallen below $1100 per ounce.

All these numbers clearly suggest that metal scrap prices will go down or stay at lower levels in the upcoming months.

Therefore, it is better you sell your scrap metal now and get better returns.

Debunking Myth: Marine Brass Scrap Same As Yellow Brass

Many scrappers don’t know the difference between various scrap metals and therefore sell scrap metal at loss. On the same lines, there are many scrappers who mistake qualities of marine brass similar to yellow brass. I’m here to debunk that myth.

Let’s start with understanding the nature of marine brass first.

What’s marine brass?
Marine brass consists of iron or nickel that makes it stronger, often found on ships and boats. What differentiates marine brass is its hardness that makes it a stronger metal than yellow scrap. Therefore, marine brass is used to make propellers for large boats and ships that strike against the grueling force of waters while navigating.

Where can I find marine brass?
You can find it over the ship’s bottom, also often the anchor has strips of marine brass on it.
Wise tip- Remember that brass is an alloy made from copper and zinc when mixed together. When you add nickel or iron to the mixture, it becomes marine brass. However, do know that this process brings the value of copper down slightly.

Are marine brass items good scrap metals?
Marine brass is a great metal scrap item. However, many think of it as entirely made up of bronze. In reality, marine brass is a different type of alloy. Now go to a scrap metals Doha Recycle Company that is able to determine the item’s authenticity using an analyzer on location to analyze the materials inside. In times of uncertainty, you can upload images on the iScrap Metal Forum and ask for expert customer opinions regarding the type of metal scrap.

Bon Voyage Scrappers!

How To Sell Copper scrap in Qatar?

Metal scrap recycling and selling is beneficial in two ways. One, you get good money. Second, you save environmental degradation as you know metals when thrown away degrade and pollute the soil. Therefore metal scrap recycling is a way to prevent environmental degradation. This article will tell you how to get the maximum value for your solid copper metal scrap.

Now to get the maximum value from your solid copper scrap it is important to sort different types of copper. In that process, it is important to realize the 5 different kinds of copper to get an appropriate price for each category.

The 5 different kinds of copper are as follows-

  • Copper solids- They are the most valuable type of copper. Copper solids further break down into 3 categories depending on the purity of copper element present in the object.
  • Copper non solids- These include dust and trimmings.
  • Copper wire- They are the electronic wires.
  • Copper breakage- This is a type of copper obtained from objects like motors and transformers.
  • Copper alloy- Alloys are mixed with other metals like brass and bronze.

This will ensure that you don’t stack all copper scrap as one pile thus giving you the least overall price. Every kind of copper demands a different price- an important point to note when you sell copper metal scrap.

Importance Of Aluminium Alloys And Their Various Functionalities

Aluminium is an important metal used for various purposes. Aluminium alloys are in great demand leading to growing aluminium manufacturing with each year. It is an important element of the commodity market which supports many economies around the world.

Let’s delve into quick details reminding ourselves of the various purposes aluminium alloys are used for-


Other than roads, and water bridges, aluminium alloys are important components required to manufacture air crafts. 70% of aircraft mainframes are made using aluminium alloys. In automobile sector, aluminium alloys are chiefly by car companies to manufacture important car accessories like engines, wheels, radiators and other body parts.

Power sector

Significant proportion of power lines use aluminium instead of copper as their reliable conductor on weight grounds.


Aluminium foils have always played a role packing food items. There are also aluminium cans that envelope many beverages. The reason for such ubiquity is that aluminium packaging is simple, and yet aesthetically appealing.

Office and home equipment

Most of our office and home equipment's like furniture, iron, and utensils are made using aluminium and its alloys.

Infrastructural purpose

Aluminiumis a chief element used to construct buildings and main components of a house like roofs, doors, and window panes.

Sports items

Many sports items like rackets, snookers, pool cues, ski poles, and golf clubs are made using aluminium alloys.


Many dealers and consumers in Dubai often feel deceived with the procurement of low quality aluminium. Therefore, it is necessary that you do you research and buy aluminium from trusted Aluminium Alloy Manufacturers like Lucky Alloys which is a part of Lucky Group. It is known for highest level of service in Scrap Metal Recycling to aluminium alloy manufacturing.

What Recycling Measures Malls Can Implement To Manage Waste Reduction?

Mall owners incur huge expenses. How can malls achieve large scale metal scrap recycling and earn some return on investment also preventing colossal waste generation?  We have compiled an assortment of ways a mall can achieve seamless and efficient metal recycling.

Conduct a Waste Audit

Set up a team to assess the mall’s waste stream. Conduct a waste audit. This will reveal the amount of trash being generated and what all materials form the trash. In this way you can separate the metal scraps from other types of scrap and send them for recycling. This will be your first step towards getting a significant return on your investment. For instance, you laid a metal panel framework to display your couture segment. However, it is time to dump the metal scraps after a long use and get it replaced with a new metal framework. Instead of dumping the old metal scrap, you can recycle it to redeem some of the value on your investment.

Reuse Hoardings and Banners

The mall owners should educate their employees on the benefits of reusing hoarding and banners. Instead of throwing them away, nice looking paper or cloth bags can be made using hoardings and banners. Customers can be handed these eco-friendly bags rather than plastic ones thus also contributing to environmental safety.

Promote Recycling

A mall welcomes thousands of footfalls every day. It is therefore an ideal place to also promote recycling benefits to fall upon thousand ears.

Lucky group is a company that actively helps malls meet their Metal Scrap Recycling requirements.

Recycling At Home Gets Easy With These Easy Tips

Recycling is as important as accommodating the right things at home. We enlist here some quick and easy tips so that you can start recycling at home.

The tips are as follows for different material recycling from metal scraps to plastic bottles.  

Aluminum cans – If the value of using aluminum cans is huge, recycling them is equally important. In order to get the most value in terms of environment welfare, you need to know the mode of crushing the recycling centers use. Same is the case with aluminum foils. They form a great product to be recycled to manufacture electronic items.

Magazines and pamphlets – Similar to newspapers; you can store magazines and pamphlets in a separate bin and then recycle them.

Food carton boxes – Many use food cartons which get piled up after some point of time thus occupying home space and rendering very less space to store important things. You will be happy to hear that food cartons are easily recyclable materials. Just store them separately and give it to recycling centers which accept them.

Plastic bottles – In order to ease the process of recycling, categorize your trash into two parts. The first includes trash to be thrown away and second includes bottles to be recycled. As you know, plastic bottles are made up of PET plastic which is regarded a vital recyclable material.

Hence, I have shown you the way as to how recycling begins at your home. So take a pledge and start recycling today!

Got an old car that is scrap? We’ll tell you how it can be made useful

Consider a pair of old junk car seats like these-

You can turn them into comfortable office chairs with very little effort-

Fascinating, isn’t it?

And it is easy too. Here is a step-by-step guide:

1. Detach the redundant car seats
2. Get enough spray adhesive
3. Get spray paints, associated hardware and a rust remover.
4. Use the spray paints to give the old car seats a fresh and sophisticated look.
5. Utilize the rust remover to make the seats rust-free.
6. Use associated hardware to convert into office chairs.

That isn’t all you can do with scrap car parts. There are lots of other things you can do with junked car scraps to get something useful and beautiful. Here are a few: 

Create vintage flower art!

This creative art can be easily made by using old car license plates and a door knob! All you need to do is assemble the junked license plates and door knob in the way shown above. Soon you will see how this adage comes live- “A car’s waste is another person’s treasure!” 

Make a work-table

We understand the pain a car owner goes through after witnessing the breakage of car’s exterior over a period of time because of rusting. However, as you find treasures from a sinking ship, here too lies a treasure! Above is a brilliant example of how you can convert old car parts into gorgeous new furniture. All you need to do is get old rusted car doors like above. Assemble the door with a few wooden strands as shown above and you have a sturdy table ready to use! 

Or an artsy industrial vase

You’ve recycled the seats. And the license plates. And the rusted door. What else is left to recycle?

All the tiny metal bits and ends that hold the cars together. Weld them together to create an industrial-style vase. Or use them to make a striking showpiece or a vintage holder!

Head-lamps can be useful too

We personally love this marvelous table lamp assembled using an upcycled car headlight. You can see, the rouge retro headlight consists of dings and scratches thus showing how beautifully it has aged. Although it is worn out, it gives the lamp a vintage feel. To create this at home, assemble an old car headlight with a stand and a switch and a pivoting mechanism.

These old reclaimed car parts will lend a neat, industrial look to your home’s décor.

Or if you are not into DIY, you can consider recycling your car by selling it at the scrap yard. Car parts are mostly steel which is the most common metal and hence does not fetch much at the scrap yard. But you can get a good price for your scrap if you call up scrap yards in your area beforehand to enquire about their prices. In our experience, scrap yards pay more when you sell scrap in bulk.

At Lucky Group we actively encourage metal recycling and upcycling in Dubai.
