About Us

Serving our customers since 1979

Price's Auto Recyclers and NJ Scrap Metal and Recycling started operations in New Egypt, New Jersey in 1979 as an auto recycling yard.  The business bought and sold new and used auto parts until 2004.  At that time we decided to change the business structure.  Price's began concentrating on purchasing scrap metals.

The business bought both ferrous and non-ferrous materials including car bodies, loose metal, light iron, aluminum, copper and brass. 

Today the business is still owned and operated by Bill and LuAnn Price along with the management skills of Ryan Price . As our business grows we have opened a brand new office and have a state of the art truck scale to weigh materials. We try to be both professional and efficient while paying the highest prices possible for material. In addition to buying metals, we offer on site scrap removal and container service. We provide fast, friendly service. We value our customers and want them to be treated right!

Thank you, Bill
