What’s My Metal Worth?

Metal items fall into two categories- ferrous or non-ferrous. Because of their physical properties, non-ferrous metals are valued higher than ferrous metals; however our fair competitive pricing and customer service make recycling any type of metal a profitable experience. Not sure what type of what metal you have? Try the “Magnet Test”.

How the “Magnet Test” Works:

  1. Find any type of magnet.
  2. Place the magnet on your metal item.
  3. If the magnet sticks, your metal is made of steel and is a ferrous metal.
  4. If the magnet doesn’t stick, then you have a non-ferrous metal.
