Difference Between Ferrous and Non-ferrous Metal Scrap

Recycling should be fun.

It should not be complex or so technical that it becomes a task. That is the main motivation for us to write blogs that help you recycle and keep it fun.

In today's blog post we are going to talk about the differences and similarities between ferrous and non-ferrous metal scrap. People mostly get overwhelmed with the technicalities when they start recycling but after you read this blog post, we are sure you won't have any doubts about how to recycle either of these metals or negotiate on their prices.

Simply put: Ferrous metals contain iron. Non-ferrous metals do not contain any iron.

Ferrous metals include: Steel, cast iron and wrought iron. Non-ferrous metals include: aluminium, brass, copper, nickel, zinc, lead and tin. They also include precious metals like gold and silver, but you won't really  sell them at the scrap yard.

The Differences

Ferrous metals are widely used for their strength and durability. Skyscrapers, bridges, automobiles and tools use ferrous metals. But for all their strength and durability, ferrous metals have the disadvantage of rusting when exposed to air. Stainless steel and wrought iron resist rusting but not other ferrous metals.

Non-ferrous metals are not as strong as ferrous metals, but they are used for various other purposes. Aluminium is valued for its malleability and light weight and used extensively in aircrafts. Non-ferrous metals are also resistant to rusting and are used for road signs, roofing, water pipes and gutters.

The Price

The prices of ferrous metals remain fairly steady as they are available in good supply throughout the year.

Non-ferrous metals are harder to come by which makes the demand greater and the prices higher. Aluminum prices don't fluctuate as much because of its steady supply but other non-ferrous metals like copper and brass can face massive price fluctuations throughout the year.

If you are looking to sell scrap, always call the scrap dealer in advance to find out the rate they are offering to buy the metal you have to sell.

The Similarities

Both ferrous and non-ferrous metals are useful and important for the Recycling Industry and ultimately for the environment.

If you have any more questions about ferrous and non-ferrous metals, leave them in the comments and we will get back to you.

How can you upcycle discarded copper pipes?

Where to find copper pipes in your house

Copper pipes are commonly used in houses for plumbing purposes. Copper pipes are non-toxic and safer than lead and hence most new households install copper pipes for their hot and cold water supply.

If you are upgrading the plumbing of your home, there is a lot you can do with copper pipes.

How to upcycle copper pipes?

This is the age of DIY. Upcycle is the recycling of old objects in such a way so as to create something of value. Here are some ways to upcycle discarded copper pipes.

If you have lots of copper piping, consider building an open copper bookshelf.

Copper can also be re-used as a curtain road. It looks gleaming and great and goes well with any type of curtain.

Here are a few ways where copper pipes can be  upcycled as lamps. We think there is something amazingly beautiful about copper gleaming in light.


Selling copper as scrap

If you do not feel like experimenting with copper fixtures, there is another way you can help upcycle the metal.

Simply sell copper at the scrap yard to make some money. Copper is very highly valued at the scrap yard. The average return value is generally between $2-4 per pound of copper. Every time copper is recycled, 100% of the metal is recovered. So by selling copper at the scrap yard you are definitely doing your bit for the environment.

If you want to know about other metals you can sell to make money, read this blogpost.

How to sell scrap metal for money?

Where to look for scrap metal?

1. Look in your garage or basement.
2. Check in your neighborhood for discarded metal by the side of the road.
3. If you are holding on to old auto parts, those can be sold as scrap metal.
4. An old lawnmower has lots of metal parts and can be sold as scrap. Just make sure you empty the fuel tanks before you put it up for sale.
5. Yard sales are a good place to score some scrap metal for cheap.

How much is it worth?

Copper- Copper is the most valued scrap metal. Almost any metal recycling yard will accept it, depending on its condition. When copper is recycled, 100% of the metal is recovered. You can scrap motors that have copper or even copper wires. Old Christmas tree lights contain copper. And so do old toasters with their copper wiring. Old-fashioned or industrial plumping fixtures were also made of copper.

Brass- Recycling alloys like brass can also prove valuable. Brass can be found in gears, locks, valves, musical instruments and ammunition.

Aluminium- Aluminium is easily available as beverage cans, car bodies and tins. It is relatively cheap to sell as scrap.

Steel - Steel is the most common metal to scrap but the least lucrative. It can be commonly found in kitchen utensils, hubcaps and beer kegs.

How to sell it?

Step 1: Sort and clean the scrap metal
By doing these two things you significantly reduce the word the scrap yard has to do to recycle the metal. For that, your scrap metal could be bought for more.

Step 2: Find a transport vehicle. If you are carrying small quantities of scrap metal you can even use a bicycle to transport the scrap to the recycling yard. But if you are transporting huge quantities of scrap, then a pickup truck with an open back is your best option. Scrap metal in an open pickup truck can be easily unloaded by a crane. If you take your scrap metal in a closed vehicle, then you might damage your car's interior while unloading the scrap.

Step 3: Negotiate for a good price. Compare prices of the metal you are selling beforehand. You can either research it online or call up different scrap yards in your neighborhood and ask them their prices. Scrap yards usually pay more for larger quantities of scrap. Also in some areas, scrap metal fetches more during colder seasons.

Where to sell it?

The easy answer for this is scrap yards. But this question will deal with how to go about finding a scrap yard and sell your scrap? There are a few steps to this.

1. First, find a local scrap yard. You can look in your local classifieds book or do an internet search. Search for "scrap yard your-location-name" or "metal recycling your-location-name".

2. Different scrap yards buy different kinds of metal. Shortlist the scrap yards based on what you are selling.

3. Compare prices before you visit the shortlisted scrap yards by calling them and asking how much they offer for the metal you are selling.

4. Negotiate!

Upcycle in the Garden - Planters and Containers

What does an old worn out boot, used plastic water bottles and worn out tyres have in common?

They can all be used as planters and containers in your garden.

Yes! We are not joking. Upcycle is the new recycle. Upcycling is when you take old items that you don't use anymore and converting them into something useful and beautiful.

At Lucky Group we have the most advanced environmental policy in the Middle East and we actively encourage upcycling materials before discarding them.

Here are a few ways in which you can upcycle used household items to make beautiful planters and containers in your home garden.

Old boots have an aura of mystery about them and plants and flower growing out of old boots only magnifies that aura. Put a little dam soil in an old boot you haven’t used in a while and insert a delicate sapling in the soil and keep an eye out as the wonder emerges.

Old plastic bottles have never looked so beautiful as they do with green foliage sprouting out of them. Cut a portion from the side of a used plastic bottle and plan some goodness in there. Then nail it on the wall. Ten points for the environment, we say.


Tyres really cannot be used for anything else once they are worn out. Except maybe for looking really pretty in the garden! Stack two tyres on top of one another and use them as traditional planters. They can be used for growing shrubs or herbs. Coat them with paint for an extra level of prettiness.


There is another way you can use tyres as planters. Nail them on a wall, drill some holes at the bottom for drainage, fill with potting soil and plant some blooms. See how a plain old wall becomes a wall of blooming art.

Recently Lucky Group was invited to participate as a recycling partner to the Emirates Environmental Group (EEG) for its annual Can Collection Drive in October, 2014. We are very proud to share that we will be part of this drive.

If you have used upcycled items in your garden let us know how in the comments and we would love to add them to the list.

Creating Magic with Recycled Metal

Lucky Group is a scrap metal recycling company. We are also very environmentally conscious. We strongly believe that metal should be recycled and upcycled at home before it is tossed in the thrash. Check out some creative sculpture that can be made with thrash metal.

How Lucky Group Managed Through the Global Recession?

While the markets seem to be looking up it has been a very tumultuous phase in the past year of 2013.There was a government lock down in the USA, besides global politics played an important role in the metal business. After a very rough phase that the market went through it was the year of 2014 that bring a change in global markets which influenced that metal scrap market. The markets in Greece were going into an all time low in 2012 and the Greece economic crisis took such a turn that Greece dropped out of the EU. While some of this affected some of the markets, a global recession was very much evident.

[caption id="" align="alignright" width="301"] source:thetrendwatch(dot)com[/caption]

It was a very clear sign that the economy had plunged into an all time low and that it could take time to recover. The year 2014 saw a positive start and the global markets recovered phenomenally. While the metal scrap industry has taken necessary efforts to strengthen it and insulate itself from the global economic slowdown it has not been very successful in the same endeavor as none of the world markets actually did well in 2013 including the IT industry and other industries globally.

We can chronicle this change that started in 2008, the US meltdown that affected all markets globally. There was political unrest in 2011 with tectonic changes in the Middle East, the US and Asia, which resulted in distracting focus from trade. While the activists demanded political action, including a demand for democracy, lesser corruption and nepotism governance it all hinted a sea change that was coming.

Global Reccession

Global metal prices of aluminum and copper have been fluctuating and there seems to be no stability. The markets are very volatile could not be stable on the securities or market index. This resulted in indirectly affecting every facet of our lives. So oil prices and metal scrap prices remained influenced by both market forces and political factors.

The Lucky Group is the one of the largest, integrated metal recyclers and secondary aluminum alloy manufacturers in the Middle East. Established in 1973, Lucky Group today has a clientele in over 40 countries worldwide, with exceptional recycling facilities in Dubai, Jebel Ali, Doha.So Lucky Group took some very tough financial decisions when the market essentially full of turmoil and this prevented them from going into debt. The lucky group averted all financial risks possible."We believe that borrowing freely increases your financial exposure; it can be a good recipe for bankruptcy," according to Saleem Shaban of the Lucky Group. The top brass at Lucky Group was compelled to take important financial decisions and avert a financial risk in the trade in times of a global economic slowdown.

Recycling as a job opportunity includes a number of processes. It is very hierarchical and includes a variety of processes. Recycling as an industry includes not merely a business opportunity, but it is likewise a societal activity that involves serving society. It is what might some call as an activity for societal good.

The winter months are not that great for visiting a scrap metal recycling centre in Dubai. This is majorly because the scrap prices are generally low in this season.

If you are a construction company or a business, this is especially a good time for you to sell of all the metal scrap that you have collected over the winter.

Also, you should either go to a scrap dealer either in the beginning or towards the end of a month. These are the times scrap dealers encourage higher prices as people look forward to de-cluttering their houses. However, try to visit a recycling centre mid week rather than going on a weekend. These centres are generally crowded on the weekend; you might have to wait for a long time.

Celebrating UAE’s 17th National Environment Day on Tuesday, President Sheikh Khalifa was of the opinion that UAE can be an international pioneer in creating a green economy. He said that the major goal of this event was to make the country a world leader in the safety of the environment and energy efficiency.

Sheikh Khalifa also said that, “There is a need for public awareness, along with government effort, to promote production and deployment of renewable energy.” Promoting eco friendly modes of transport is also essential to support this cause; such transport helps in reducing the carbon emissions which are otherwise hazardous to the environment. Also, it is vital that organic farming is also propagated. Apart from this, there has to be an emphasis on preservation of biodiversity and an ecological balance needs to be maintained.

Recycle Things at Your Home With These Simple Tips

With so many people propagating the importance of recycling, it becomes necessary to pace towards it. And what can be better than starting the deed at your own home. Here we provide you with some simple tips for the same.

Recycling at Home    
  1. Newspapers - Keep the newspapers in a separate bin. The newspapers that you get everyday play a very important role in recycling. You can collect the newspapers everyday in a separate bin and then give it to the recycling company.

  2. Magazines and pamphlets – Just as with newspapers, magazines and pamphlets can be collected in a separate bin and recycled as well.

  3. Plastic food cartons – Food cartons are used by one and all at some point of time. You will be happy to hear that they are recyclable as well. Therefore, you just need to collect them separately and find out the recycling centers which accept them.

  4. Plastic bottles - Divide your trash into 2 compartments.  Let one compartment be for throwing away thrash and the other compartment for throwing away bottles. In this way, you can collect the plastic bottles and use them for recycling. Plastic bottles are composed of PET plastic that’s regarded an important recyclable material.

  5. Plastic bags – Plastic bags that you get from grocery stores are made up of high density polyethylene, that’s a recyclable material as well. You can simply throw away the plastic bags outside the grocery stores which are then passed onto recycling centers.

  6. Your old computer – Instead of throwing away your old computer, you can give it to some poor kid who can use the computer just for the basics.

  7. Glass - Glass items such as mirrors, bottles and others should be kept separately. The fluorescent light bulbs can also be given for recycling at a company.

  8. Aluminum food cans – Aluminum Cans are very valuable as recyclable materials. Ask the local recycling centers in Dubai to understand the mode of crushing them. The same holds true for aluminum foils as well as they can be recycled for the manufacture of electronic items.
In this way, recycling begins at home. So take an oath today and start recycling stuff!
