New record PWB prices

According to E-Scrap News The gross value of printed wiring board scrap hit yet another all-time high in April at $5.64 a pound, up 4.4 percent from March’s totals of $5.39 per pound and 29.9 percent higher than the year-over-year value of $3.95 per pound.
This data represents the full metallic values of boards over time and are not the recycling values, as those values do not include the costs involved in actually extracting metal from boards, including freight, sampling charges, assay assessments, smelting, refining, process loss, return on investment, and penalties for various elements, including beryllium, bismuth and nickel.
These values are for the estimated intrinsic metal content of recovered PC boards. Some consumers label such material as mid-value. Lower-value scrap includes monitor and television boards. Higher-value scrap includes network and video cards, and motherboards.
The average value of board scrap for the first four months of 2010 is $5.40 per pound, a 27.7 percent jump over the same period last year.
