Common Mistakes You Can Make When Scrapping Metal

Posted on 12 May 2016

Now that the spring season has started, we’ve likely done some spring cleaning around the home, and even at work. You may have donated old clothing, canned foods, or small things around the home you have no need for anymore. But have you ever thought of getting rid of other items, such as metals, wires or even electronics for money? At Tal Metal, we are committed to “going green”, and provide our recyclers with competitive rates for their recycled metals. It’s part of our job to help the environment, by making it even more convenient for people to recycle and take part in sustainability endeavors. Here are our top three tips to make sure you don’t make any common mistakes when recycling scrap metal.

1. Know what metals are accepted

It is very important to know which metals are accepted at metal trading facilities. You do not want to bring a large quantity of metals that won’t be accepted, and then have to take them either back home, or pay to get them properly disposed of. At Tal Metal, we accept the entire range of nonferrous metals, which include: aluminum and iron, brass and bronze, stainless steel, and more. Other metal recyclers may not accept all of these materials, so make sure you plan and do your research before you visit recycling facilities with these items.

2. Separate your metals in advance

You should try your best to separate the metals you are bringing to a metal trading yard beforehand. You should also know what types of metals you are bringing in the first place, as it will obviously make it much easier to separate your metals and communicate which metals are which when you arrive at the recycling facility.

3. Go to the right yard

Going to the right place is a crucial step in the scrap metal recycling process. You want to go to a trusted and reliable business that will give you the most competitive prices out there. Go to a business with excellent customer service. Places like these give you the best bang for your buck, as they try don’t try to minimize the value of the recycled materials you’ve brought with you. Great customer service usually translates to competitive prices when it comes to working with scrap metal recycling companies.
