A lot of scrap metal can be reused in construction, manufacturing, furniture, as well as in order to produce new, stronger metals. By properly disposing of your aluminium, copper, brass, steel, iron, etc., you can help create new metal objects at a lower cost.
Mining new metals from the Earth’s crust is a very invasive, costly, and time-consuming process. This, combined with the fact that metals are a finite resources, suggests that by recycling old metals, not only can everyone save a lot of money, but we can also waste less precious materials, resulting in more sustainable living all around.
The price depends on a number of factors. From the type of metal, through your location, the time of year, and the current market price, there are plenty of small elements that will influence the price you can expect for your scrap metal.
As with many other products, the price of scrap metal hinges on current supply and demand, as well as the cost of production.
As a general rule, all ferrous metals, such as engineering grade carbon steels and other types of steel, can be recycled.
Sadly, as per the latest legal regulations, scrap metal cannot be paid for in cash. However, we do offer a number of other payment services, all geared towards making your life easier, so you’re bound to find a payment method that’s agreeable with you.
