Little Hacks For Big Impact: Scrap Metal Recycling Made Easy

Scrap metal recycling is a good way to get rid of unwanted things and earn money in return. Here are some hacks that will make your scrap metal recycling process easier and lucrative.

Keep a magnet handy
Our team at Lucky Group dealing with scrap metals in Doha recommends that having a magnet is useful while collecting scrap metal. This is especially important when you have undertaken the task of separating your scrap metals before taking the pile to the scrap yard. A magnet is of great help when you are not sure about the category of the scrap metal - whether it is a ferrous metal like steel or a non-ferrous one like aluminum. In such scenarios, use a magnet. The metals that cling on to the magnet (like steel) fall in the ferrous pile while the metals that don’t go into the non-ferrous pile which includes metals like brass, copper and aluminum.

Why is it recommended to separate ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metals?
When you do not separate ferrous metals from the non-ferrous ones, the scrap yard will weigh your scrap metal pile as a whole. This will get you less money as it degrades the price of your scrap metal pile when weighed and calculated as a whole. However, when you separate the ferrous scrap metal pile from the non-ferrous one, you get more money. It is because non-ferrous metals are more valuable than the ferrous metals. When they are both in one pile, it will naturally eat into your returns.
