We write about the various metals we recycle here, but behind every blog post or article is the fact that metal recycling is big business and there’s opportunity for enterprising scrappers to make good money. A quick look at the metal recycling business shows us some interesting statistics. For one, it’s the non-ferrous metals that pay the most. Metals like copper, aluminum, nickel, tin, lead and zinc (to name a few) are in high demand. These metals do not lose their chemical properties when recycled. That means these metals can be used and reused ad infinitum via recycling. Using recycled metals means lower costs for manufacturers (compared to creating these same metals by digging them out of the earth.
The upshot is, metal recycling centers like ours perform a valuable service for industry as well as the environment. To keep our facilities going we need a steady supply of scrap metals and our customers are the ones who supply us with that scrap. As we’ve also written this relationship between scrapper, recycling center and manufacturing is a win-win-win one. Every link in this “chain” either makes or saves money and in the case of saved money, a penny saved is a penny earned!
We look for non-ferrous metals because they are in such high demand. Statistically non-ferrous metals make up about 10% of all the metal that gets recycled. However, they are responsible for half the earnings of the scrap metal recycling industry. You can see, then, why it makes sense to encourage customers to bring in non-ferrous metals.
