With effect from September 1, 2013, Steel First will introduce three Midwest Scrap indices to its database, provided by sister company AMM.

The three AMM Midwest Scrap indices will be for No1 heavy melting scrap, No1 busheling and Shredded material, respectively.

The AMM Midwest Scrap indices are published on the tenth day of each month at 5pm EST. Visit AMM’s Midwest Scrap Index for the full methodology.
