Ferrous metals

Ferrous metals are found in cars, architectural details bridges, railroads, and other industrial applications.

Buyers of ferrous metals

We accept most ferrous metals including domestic/household items, such as washing machines, bikes and cars, as well as all grades of heavy iron from construction, demolition, manufacturing and a diverse number of other sectors. We pay top prices for all ferrous scrap metal types.

Why recycle metals?

You can recycle metal materials infinitely without degrading their properties when re-used. Natural resources are preserved when metals are recycled, it also requires less energy to recycle than to use virgin raw materials when manufacturing new products, every time we recycle, we help protect the environment.

Scrap metal classifications

Scrap metals are split into two different catgeories: non ferrous and ferrous. Non-ferrous metals are generally higher in value than ferrous metals, but you can get money for both if you take them to the appropriate place to be recycled.
