Know Your Metals: What Can You Recycle?

It is well established that scrap metal recycling is a great idea, for both commercial and residential institutions. Before you plunge into the beneficial world of scrap metals, it’s better to know your metals so you can get the best of this world.

The most sought out metals are:
  1. Brass - Door knobs, light fixtures, furniture accents, lamps, decorative utensils, keys, etc. have this material in abundance. So keep an eye out for this yellowish metal when you’re throwing away any of the above items.
  2. Copper - Used in electric fittings, wiring, copper utensils, pipes, etc. This reddish metal is fairly common too. Regular use and exposure to light can cause it to turn brownish-black, nothing a good cleaning can’t solve. Copper recycling in Dubai can be done if you manage to collect a substantial amount of copper to interest recycling centers.
  3. Aluminium - Aluminium scrap in Dubai is quite in demand. This silver grey metal can be found in utensils, soda cans, pipes, guttering, window frames, beds and many other places where a sturdy but lightweight metal is needed.
These are the 3 main metals that are corrosion resistant and a good deal for scrap recyclers. Apart from these, if you come across zinc, magnesium, tin, lead and nickel, you can take them to be scrapped too. The more the better!

We are living in an era where prices are skyrocketing. Sending your scrap metals to dumping grounds is the same as throwing your money away. That is why; recycling your scrap metals is the need of the hour.

The value of scrap metal has increased

Most metals take years to form and are naturally extracted. Hence, they are limited. As a result, most companies are now re-using old scrap metals to produce metals that possess all qualities of the primary metal. This means your old scrap metal commands a great value. Besides, the costs involved in extracting and refining metals is huge. Therefore, these are the best and the right times to recycle scrap metals and make good money.

Turn waste into treasure

Landfills nowadays seem to overflow with disposed and discarded metals. A lot of metals like steel, aluminum (cans), brass, copper, electric wire and other appliances can earn  you significant value  when you sell  these at the scrap metal yard. Metals like aluminum and copper are easy to find and are available in large quantities.

Conclusion

You don’t need to empty the landfills to find scrap metals for recycling. Simple tasks like being watchful for discarded metal items like appliances around your neighbourhood (within the local laws) can do wonders.
