Metals we recycle

Ferrous and non-ferrous

Ferrous metals and alloys contain iron. If you see rust, it is very likely a ferrous metal. Most ferrous metals also have magnetic properties.  

Ferrous metals include: mild steel, carbon steel, stainless steel, cast iron and wrought iron.   

Non-ferrous metals are much lighter, more malleable and are non-magnetic.  Non-ferrous scrap is more rare, which makes the demand greater, driving up the price per pound higher than ferrous metals.

Non-ferrous metals include: aluminum, brass, copper, nickel, tin, lead, and zinc, as well as precious metals like gold and silver.
