WHAT ARE NON-FERROUS METALS?
All metals that do not contain iron are considered non-ferrous metals. They are more corrosion resistant than ferrous metals, and their non-magnetic and lightweight properties make them highly versatile for many applications in the production and manufacturing industries. The most common non-ferrous metals are:
All scrap metals can be recycled indefinitely without losing any of their properties. The ever-increasing demand and value of non-ferrous metals and the increasing environmental stress mean that the need for recycled non-ferrous metals is continuously increasing. Please call us in Hagersville or Waterford to dispose of your scrap metal in a safe and eco-friendly way!
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 and are widely used for industrial and architectural constructions as well as a number of consumer goods and products. You can tell if an item contains ferrous metals by sticking a magnet to it. If the magnet sticks, the metal contains iron and is thus ferrous. If the magnet does not stick, it is most likely non-ferrous.
HOW DO WE RECYCLE NON-FERROUS METALS?
Separating and sorting the ferrous from non-ferrous materials.
The process of recycling all non-ferrous materials is similar. The most crucial step is to separate ferrous from non-ferrous metals to ensure the metal’s purity and reduce the cost of further processing. Non-ferrous metal recycling involves the following:
The metals are then compacted into large blocks or bails.
The blocks are then cut down into more manageable sizes.
After one more round of sorting, the metals are melted and shaped into blocks.
If not properly disposed of and recycled, non-ferrous materials usually land in landfills and pollute our earth. Please help us save the environment and work towards a more sustainable future by letting us help you discard all your scrap metals.
