A Guide to Scrap Metal Recycling

Today, people are very conscious about saving the environment and reprocessing our resources so that they can be conserved, and there are efforts being made by well meaning producers to recycle the most profuse waste that does not decay which is plastic. In order to replace mined resources, plastic was created in the 1800s. Unlike other mined metals that are naturally developed over years and years of forming, plastic on the other hand is synthetic or a compound formed through a chemical process by human agency. Thus, it can easily be produced in a lab. And since plastic is the main source of clogging in our sewages and hurting our aquifers, we don’t want people to be throwing away their plastic but it is best to recycle them and this is why when we hear the term ‘recycle’ we always just think of recycling plastic.

But have we ever thought of recycling scrap metals such as copper wires, iron, steel, aluminum and brass. The scarcity and depletion of these metals justify recycling them. We don’t have any problems with plastic because we can easily produce them, but we don’t produce these mined metals and we need to extract them from the ground under our resources run out. In other words, there is more need to recycle these mined metals if the intent is to reprocess our resources. Yes salvaging our environment is just as important, but the limelight should not only be the dire need to free our environment from this plastic epidemic.

You should realize that if you have plenty of scrap metal, there are industries that are seeking it and that you can earn a good profits in selling to recycling plants. Many breaker yards or scrap dealers would happily take your metal for cash and give a reasonable price for it. Your junk car and other scrap metal that has been around and consuming space in either your resident or your business facility are sleeping assets both to you and to the producer. Don’t keep your junk anymore; free the space and help conserve our environment by selling your junk metal to recycling companies so that you can save a large amount of drilling and mining for these metals.

You should distinguish between ferrous and non ferrous metals when you intend to sell your scraps. This should at least give you hint on how breakers price your metal. The kind of metal that sticks to a magnet are ferrous metals like iron and steel, and those that don’t are non-ferrous like copper, brass, and aluminum. The price of ferrous metals are lower than that of non-ferrous metals.

This distinction between the types of metals, the ferrous and non-ferrous, should be determined before selling them so that you will know the value of the asset that is in your hand.
