Recycling Metals for Sustainability

Every day millions of tons of unused (leftover) or excess metals pile up all over the world. In the United States and in Southern California specifically, those metals may come in the form of used soft drink cans (aluminum), old copper wiring, used or broken plumbing fixtures (brass), old flatware or appliances (stainless steel).

In each case the metal mentioned is non-ferrous, meaning they do not contain iron. Why do we take non-ferrous? Because these types of metals are corrosion resistant and unlike iron are not subject to rust. The fact that they can be melted down and reused make them valuable to industries that need metal from the secondary metals market, which is just a fancy way of saying recycled scrap metals.

If you have a significant amount of metal to sell of varying types, a metal recycling center such as ours can let you know exactly which metals you have and how much each is worth in quantity. For example, when performing a hardness test, lead will be much softer than brass. Copper is also a more malleable metal than, say, steel.
