More About Metals
Metals are separated into one of two basic grades which are referred to in the scrap metal recycling industry as ferrous and nonferrous metals. Once a metal has been identified as one of these types, it is then further categorised into more specific grades for processing. We grade and process our metals according to international specifications which determine the price of the metal at the time of purchase. Please note that prices are regularly subject to change as dictated by the fluctuations in the world market.
These metals are magnetic, and generally heavier than most non ferrous metals. Some of the most common grades are below:
Brake drums, storm cover gratings, manifolds, roller rings
Railway iron, construction steel, plate steel, old machinery
Roofing iron, drums, ducting, spouting
