Some of the metals that can be recycled and reused are aluminum, steel, cooper and brass. However, those metals are frequently thrown away in the garbage or placed in a dump and not recycled. This is an unsafe practice and can be hazardous to your health and to the health of everyone on the planet. Many people are unaware of the services that people who recycle scrap metal provide to the community as a whole. Bringing your metal to the right place is not only the right thing to do, but you also make a few bucks in the process. 


Many clients who are in the trade industry or construction industry rely on scrap metal services to provide for reliable metal materials. However, homeowners and others are always encouraged to bring in scrap metal of their own. Even if you notice some scrap metal on the side of the road or misplaced in a garbage, collecting it and bringing it to our yard would be considered a public service. We know the importance of reusing metals and we would be pleased if you felt the same.


How A Magnet Assesses Metals


One of the key factors in determining the value of a metal is if it is a ferrous or non-ferrous metal. It is necessary to separate these two types of metals before bringing them down to the yard for recycling. You can simply do this at home with a magnet. If the magnet sticks to the metal, it is a ferrous metal, which is a common metal like steel or iron. These metals are not worth very much when scrapped, but it is still worthwhile to bring down and properly recycle the material.


If the magnet does not stick to the metal, then it is a non-ferrous metal. Copper, aluminum, brass and stainless-steel are all categorized as these types of metals. They are much more valuable to scrap as opposed to their ferrous counterparts. Separating these metals beforehand is a good strategy as it simplifies the process at the yard. You will have a better understanding of the value of the metal and therefore trust the estimates given to you.
