Ferrous Metals for Sale

Our scrap metal yards offer several ferrous (iron-containing) metals. These materials can provide holistic solutions to your current project or industrial need. At our scrap metal yards, you’ll find two primary ferrous materials.


Steel is everywhere. It is a prevalent material with many variations, from carbon steel and stainless steel to mild steel. All of these steels are critical for building tools and equipment used worldwide. You can find stainless steel in your kitchen as well as in garages, bridges, buildings and playgrounds. It is essential to everyday life.


Humans have used iron for thousands of years. Many people choose iron because of its cost, malleability and ability to conduct electricity. In history, iron was the go-to material for creating tools and weapons. Nowadays, we use it to form stainless steel. Another popular use includes sheet iron for building ships, airplanes and bridges.

Non-Ferrous Metals for Sale

Non-ferrous metals lack iron, yet they create durable materials for constructing equipment, making tools and creating items we use daily. Some of these items are relatively small but are critical to our homes’ electricity and the money in our pockets.


Aluminum is a great scrap metal for a range of uses. It’s lightweight, can be strengthened through heating processes and is also low cost. Many electricity companies use aluminum because it is a good electricity conductor — you can find it in electrical transmission lines. Other industries use aluminum for airplane construction, cooking equipment and soda cans.


One of the first metals we used in civilization, copper, has played a vital role in our society’s progression. It has several beneficial properties, such as its softness and ductile nature. Because of these traits, professionals in the electrical industry regularly use copper as wiring. Copper can be fused with other metals to become more robust and reliable for other uses, like building materials.


We also offer brass, a combination of copper and zinc. The resulting metal is gold-colored, making it a popular material for manufacturing decorative items. Brass is ductile, malleable and strong. It is also critical to building instruments and long-lasting tools. Because of its resistance to bacterial growth, many industries make bathroom fixtures with brass.
