Categories Of Scrap Metals You Should Know

There are a wide range of scrap metals you can recycle. But did you know that all of them can be categorised into two subsets?

A typical scrap yard will accept all kinds of metals which are then processed to manufacture a whole new range of items. On the other hand, some scrap metal yards accept only a certain category of scrap metals.

In any case, it is important that you know the categories in which the recyclable scrap metals are split into to get optimal price for your scrap metals.

Non-ferrous – Let’s first talk about the non-ferrous category. The scrap metals that fall in this category feature those other than steel and iron. A few examples include brass, copper, aluminum (which include cans and foil paper), nickel, and zinc.

Ferrous – As we discussed above, iron and steel fall into this category known as ferrous metals. Ferrous metals form a significant part of elements like appliances, railroad tracks, (food packaging contains mostly aluminium not ferrous and ships.

In everyday life, you can easily identify certain metals which you don’t use anymore and they eventually land in the landfill. But what if you could earn money recycling them at a scrap metal yard? Apart from that, you contribute to the welfare of environment by not letting the harmful metals come in contact with land or water and polluting such vital life-giving resources. We are a renowned metal scrap company in Dubai dealing in recycling of many ferrous and non-ferrous metals.
