What’s My Metal Worth?

Before you recycle it’s important to know what type of metal you have. Metal items fall into two categories – ferrous or non-ferrous. Because of its physical properties, non-ferrous metal are values higher than ferrous metals; however our fair competitive pricing and customer service make recycling any time of metal a profitable experience.

What Type of Metal do I have?

    Try the magnet test to determine whether you have ferrous or non ferrous metal.

  • Find any type of magnet
  • Place the magnet on your metal item
  • If the magnet sticks, your metal is made with iron and is a ferrous metal.
  • If the magnet doesn’t stick, you have a non-ferrous metal.
