Scrap Metal Recycling Facts & Tips
Know Your Metal
Both ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metals are recyclable. Ferrous metals contain some quantity of iron; thus, they possess some level of magnetic attraction. Of all the ferrous metals, steel is the most commonly recycled material. On the other hand, non-ferrous scrap metals – like aluminum, copper, lead, nickel, tin and zinc – are less common, but are extremely valuable (totaling around $40 billion in 2014).
Sources of Scrap
Sure, automobiles and appliances are obvious sources of scrap metals. But there are also many more surprising places to reuse valuable metals. For instance, recycling electronics and e-waste – like computers, circuit boards, cell phones, hard drives and batteries. These unwanted devices are treasure troves of precious metals like platinum, gold and silver. Plumbers, electricians and construction workers may be surprised to learn they can recycle their pipes, wires, steel construction beams or aluminum roof shingles.

There’s a surprising upside potential to recycling your scrap metal. Aside from contributing to more sustainable operations, you can cut your business’ waste costs and save money every month.
