Scrap Aluminium Prices
Aluminum is a soft, silvery-grey, non-ferrous metal that is commonly used in a variety of household products. Aluminum tends to be light, resist corrosion, and conducts heat well, which makes it a popular choice for items such as pots and pans, drink cans, lamps, frames, tables and chairs, auto parts, and more.
The price of scrap aluminum will depend on the purity of the aluminum. Pure aluminum will fetch a higher price than an aluminum-iron alloy. Prices tend to fluctuate based on the expected demand in the market. To get an accurate quote, we recommend bringing your scrap aluminum to our location.
Scrap Brass Prices
Brass is a gold-coloured, non-ferrous metal alloy that is made from a combination of copper and zinc. Due to its appearance, brass is commonly used for decorative purposes throughout the home, but it also offers low friction and corrosion resistance for more functional uses.
Some common household items that are made from brass include door knobs and locks, lamps and other ornaments, musical instruments, zippers, plumbing, electrical plugs and sockets, valves and couplings, and more.
The level of zinc in the alloy will affect the colour of the brass and the price of your scrap brass. Lighter coloured brass will have more zinc, whereas darkers brass will be predominantly copper. The number of variations of brass make it difficult to provide a price without examining the item in question. We recommend that clients bring their scrap brass to us to receive an accurate quote.
Scrap Copper Prices
Copper is a ductile, non-ferrous metal with great thermal and electrical conductivity. Due to these properties, copper is commonly used for electrical wiring and cabling, electric motors, and other electronic equipment. It can also be used in plumbing, gutters and downspouts, sinks, and more, thanks to its antimicrobial properties.
Copper is a scrap metal that is commonly recycled, due to the limited reserves available worldwide. However, the purity of your scrap copper will be a major factor in determining the value of the metal. To get an estimate of current prices for scrap copper, we recommend bringing your items into our location for an assessment from our team.
Scrap Iron Prices
Iron is the fourth most common element on the planet and 90% of the metal that is refined today is iron. This strong, durable metal is used for a variety of purposes, including tools and machinery, auto parts, construction, and more. Iron is also used to create steel and other alloy materials.
Recycling iron is very common, particularly for vehicles and steel alloys. Similar to the other alloy metals, the price of scrap iron will depend on the purity of the material. The best way to get an accurate estimate will be to bring your scrap iron to our location, so it can be weighed and assessed by our team of experts.
Scrap Steel Prices
Steel is a grey metal that is an alloy of iron and carbon, which is used to make this material stronger. Stainless steel is made in a similar way with the addition of chromium to improve its resistance to corrosion. Steel and stainless steel are commonly used to make household items, such as knives, cutlery, cooking utensils, and various appliances. They are also found in many auto parts, construction materials, and more.
Steel can be recycled in the same way as any other metal alloy. The price for scrap steel will typically depend on the existing demand in the market, so it can vary greatly. Any estimate of scrap steel pricing will depend on the purity of the steel alloy in question, which we can assess on site for best accuracy.
