Scrap Metal

Common Types Of Scrap metal

We recycle a broad assortment of metals. The more frequently recycled metals are scrap steel, iron (ISS), lead, aluminum, copper, stainless steel and brass. There are lots of sorts of scrap metal, so when you’re thinking about selling your very own, you might find yourself wondering exactly what metal you’re dealing with. Here at Blackpool Skip Hire we promise a fast and professional service to help you Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. 

The kind of metal you bring in for recycling to Blackpool Skip Hire will determine how much money you’ll get in exchange.

Ferrous Metals

There are two categories of alloys: ferrous and non-ferrous. Metals which contain iron in them are known as ferrous where compounds without iron are non-ferrous. The easiest way to separate ferrous from non-ferrous is with a magnet. Ferrous alloys are iron and iron-based steel, therefore, they are magnetic. Non-ferrous metals, such as copper and brass, are not magnetic.

Aluminum

This is commonly recycled scrap metal. You’ll find aluminum in your soft drink cans, window frames, bicycles and cookware and much more.

Recycling aluminium uses about 5% of the energy required to create aluminium!

Brass

It’s easy to find brass in your home, things such as door knobs, pipe fittings, bathroom and kitchen taps.

Brass is ideal recyclable material as it can be used again and again.

Copper

Copper is the third most used metal in manufacturing. Copper is a precious metal found in your home pipes, sculptures or living room decor, appliances, kitchen sinks, pots old roof beams, and electronic equipment. 

Steel

Stainless steel is one of the biggest metals used for manufacturing. If you were renovating your kitchen, scrap your stainless appliances, sinks, trays, and appliances made of steel.

Lead

Lead is one of the most effectively recycled materials in the world  and most of the applications where lead is used, such as lead-acid batteries, it is possible to recover it to use over and over.
