Different Types Of Scrap Metals

Scrap metal exports are one of the largest in the US and by recycling metals; we reduce the amount of ore drilling throughout the world. Typically, scrap metals can be divided into two basic categories of either ferrous or non-ferrous. Determining if you have a ferrous or non-ferrous metal is the first important step before bringing it to be recycled. So how do you know what type of scrap metal you are trying to recycle? One of the most common and simplest ways is to use a magnet and even just a refrigerator magnet will work.

If the magnet sticks to the metal, you have a ferrous scrap metal like iron or steel. This type is not worth as much as other scrap metals but are still valuable and should be properly recycled.

If the magnet does not stick to the metal, you have non-ferrous scrap metal like copper, stainless steel, aluminum brass or bronze. These metals are more valuable and important for recycling.
