WHAT ARE FERROUS METALS?

All ferrous metals are composed of iron. These metals, like steel, stainless steel and cast iron, are known for their strength and durability. They are widely used for industrial and architectural constructions, consumer goods, and products. You can tell if an item contains ferrous metals by using a magnet: If the magnet sticks, the metal contains iron and is thus ferrous. If the magnet does not stick, it is most likely non-ferrous.

USES OF RECYCLED FERROUS METALS

Girders, plates, nuts, bolts, hammers, drills, chisels, files and taps

Because the demand for ferrous metals is strong and their manufacturing is lengthy, expensive and complex, recycled ferrous metals are highly sought after in all commercial industries. Recycled ferrous metals have many uses and several applications, like;

Heavy machinery, tool parts and gears, wheels, shafts and engine parts

Car cylinder blocks, brake drums, machine handles, and plumbing fitments

Kitchen draining boards, pipes, cutlery and aircraft parts

Metal ropes, springs, wires, garden tools and many more!

THE NEED TO RECYCLE FERROUS METALS

Keeps hazardous waste out of landfills

It is more important now than ever to recycle waste materials whenever possible. There are several benefits of recycling ferrous metals, such as:

Metal does not biodegrade quickly, and because landfills are limited and stretched to capacity, recycling helps to not add to the mounting waste and lessen its devastating effects on the surrounding environment and greenhouse emissions.

Reduces the use of energy

The mining, processing, and manufacturing of virgin ferrous material require far more energy than recycled metal. Repurposing waste metal is far more waste efficient, and using recycled aluminum and copper requires 90 - 95% less energy!

Protects natural resources

Virgin metal requires natural ore to be mined, a disruptive process to local environments and the ecosystem. Not only is it limited in its availability, but it is also a costly process. Using recycled metal means that no additional materials need to be mined and thus helps to conserve and protect natural resources.

Creates jobs and benefits the economy

The recycling industry benefits the economy through job creation and local investment. If dumping metal in landfills requires a few employees to drive a truck, recycling requires many more employees to perform vital duties.

Endless recycling capacity

Steel and most metals do not lose any inherent physical properties during recycling and can be recycled repeatedly. Reusing ferrous metals significantly reduces energy and material requirements compared to mining and refining virgin iron ore.

SCRAP METAL PRICES IN ONTARIO

In Ontario, the scrap metal industry is crucial in recycling and sustainability. As businesses and individuals alike seek opportunities to contribute to environmental conservation while making extra money, understanding the dynamics of scrap metal prices becomes essential. 

 

Factors influencing scrap metal prices in Ontario:

 

  • Global market trends: Global market trends heavily influence Ontario's scrap metal prices. Fluctuations in demand, geopolitical events, and economic conditions worldwide can impact the prices of various metals.
     

  • Metal type: Different metals command different prices in the scrap market. Ferrous metals like iron and steel typically have lower prices than non-ferrous metals like aluminum, copper, and brass. The type and quality of the metal you bring to a recycling facility will directly affect its value.
     

  • Market demand: Both local and regional demand influence Ontario's scrap metal prices. Industries requiring specific metals for manufacturing can drive up prices, especially if those metals are scarce in the market.
     

  • Currency exchange rates: Since the Canadian scrap metal market is interconnected with the global economy, currency exchange rates can significantly impact prices. Fluctuations in the Canadian dollar can affect the competitiveness of Ontario's scrap metal prices.
