HOURS OF OPERATION
Monday - Saturday
8:30a to 4:30p
Ferrous metals contain iron - they are corrosive and magnetic. Ferrous metals are mostly used for things like machinery, cars, motors and farm implements. They are also used in appliances, like stoves, refrigerators, washers, dryers, and freezers.
Examples of what we recycle: Steel, Appliances, Car parts, Heavy equipment, Farm equipment, Fencing, Lawn mowers, Bicycles
Non-ferrous metals contain no iron, making them lighter and more malleable. Aluminum, brass, copper, nickel, tin, lead, and zinc, as well as precious metals like gold and silver, are all non-ferrous. While non-ferrous metals can provide strength, they are primarily used where their differences from ferrous metals can provide an advantage. They are well-suited for use where strength is needed, but weight is a factor, such as in the aircraft or canning industries. Because they contain no iron, non-ferrous metals have a higher resistance to rust and corrosion, which is why you’ll find these materials in use for gutters, water pipes, roofing, and road signs. Finally, they are also non-magnetic, which makes them perfect for use in small electronics and as electrical wiring. As far as recycling goes, aluminum is the third most recycled material in the world. However, many other non-ferrous materials like copper, brass and lead are relatively scarce, and metallurgists rely heavily on scrap material recycling.
Examples of what we recycle: Aluminum, Copper, Stainless, Brass, Electric motors, Auto batteries, Industrial batteries, Lead
