Scrap metal, What is it?
Scrap metal originates both in business and residential environments either from renovations, demolitions or old unwanted items. In business it could be left over metal from manufacturing, vehicles or parts from them, a surplus of or obsolete material. In Residential you would see it in items like Copper pipe, copper wire, old patio furniture, bed frame, computer cables, aluminium baseball bats, old faucet, pot & pans, a ladder, etc
Once the metal is brought to a scrap yard it would be graded and purchased by weight. The value of the scrap metal is based on what type of metal it is (i.e. Copper, Brass, Aluminium, Lead, Stainless Steel, etc), after that we would see if there's any contaminants like steel, plastic, or rubber, etc. You'll receive the best prices if the scrap metal is 100% clean. The more the contaminants on the scrap metal the less they’re worth.
The more frequently recycled metals are scrap steel, iron, lead, aluminium, brass, copper, stainless steel and zinc. There are two main categories of metals: ferrous and non-ferrous.
At some point now or in the future those new items will become old or broken and need to be replaced. Recycling is the only option and we're here to help. At Shred-A-Can Metal Recyclers in Calgary we recycle scrap metals and give new life to old metals.
