Best Local Scrap Metal Prizes

I have been saving up scrap metal for some time now, until I had enough of it to make it worth my time to take it to the scrap yard. I have a good bit of it saved up now, and I want to look up local scrap metal prices for different places that buy it and try to find who is going to give me the most money for this stuff. I have a lot of aluminum wire, and it took me hours to strip all of the insulation off of it, so that I can sell it to a scrap yard. They won’t pay you much of anything for the wire if it still has the insulation on it, so you have to remove that, but once you do, it sells for more per pound than any other type of aluminum. I am not sure why that is.

I have a bunch of random stuff in small quantities to sell to the scrap yard too. I have some computer components, old extension cords, etc. I want to get rid of all of it at the same time, and hopefully I will come back from the scrap yard with a few hundred dollars, maybe more. I am not really sure how much all of this is worth, but obviously it depends on what the current scrap metal prices are like and it has been a few months since I have even looked at the scrap metal prices. I want to find out before I decide to make the trip though, because I like to know ahead of time roughly what I am going to get when I go to sell stuff to the scrapyard. I am hoping that I will make enough to pay for some repairs to my car.
