WOW it is amazing how an economy the other side of the world can now control the prices of the metal market - Yes CHINA has the power on many of the great countries across the world today.
Of course it must be understood that China alone has made the economies of the world shake to its boots as it is a large consumer for many things. Europe also has a place to play in this collapse as the uncertainties grow on which country will survive the economic downturn in trade.
Monkey metal or to the every day person general metals that are not included in the more vibrant markets of Copper / Brass / Aluminium / Silver / Gold have suffered almost a complete collapse. As many people may have already recognised there are not many white van men or trucks passing your door collecting metal at the moment - the reason being it would cost more in Diesel or Petrol to collect than they would make
Criminal elements may well still target the more precious groups of metals so it is wise to still be vigilant as I am sure the Police will tell you. Crime does not go away it just finds other areas to target
I don't know how much longer my business will hold with the economic pressures but realism in how much it cost to commercially dispose of rubbish in general also now leads to having to charge to pick up MONKEY METAL no longer a bonus for business but a cost that I would rather not have.
