How To Handle Metal Junk?



Are you in the middle of the process of removing junk from your house? Of course, but are you unclear as to where the metals should go? You can’t just throw them away in the trash, that’s for sure. So how do you handle them? Here’s a definite list for all your metals.


Is it recyclable?

According to the American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI), all metals are recyclable - aluminum, copper, silver, brass, and gold- and can be done without affecting their properties. Steel stands on top of the chart for being the most recycled metal. Copper is the most demanded material for recycling, so you have a chance of getting a good deal on the scraps of copper.



Why should you recycle?

It is a known fact that no metal is wasted as all of them can be recycled. So you should recycle not just for the amount you will be getting back but also for the environment. The metals thrown on the side of the road or in the trash isn’t beneficial for anyone, but it sure is a waste of resources. So do your part by putting some extra energy into preserving natural resources.


How to recycle?

There is more than one way to recycle your metals. All you have to do is make a plan and get to work.



Separate your metals

No, you can’t just shove all metals in one big pile and hand it over. To make the most out of the metals, you must separate them accordingly. For example, most scrap metals include ferrous metals, which can also be identified as magnetic metals, so get a magnet and separate the metals. The rest of the metals can easily be identified by their appearance, or you can do basic tests such as spark tests and chip tests.

Alloys must be in a separate pile because alloys are made up of more than one metal and need to go through chemical and thermal procedures to be separated, which is done on an industrial level, so you don’t have to worry about that.

You should separate all rusted metals as they could lower the value of the rest of the metals just by the look of them.


Valuable metals

Instead of just selling these metals for cheap for recycling, you can get them transformed into something new as the value of metals such as silver and gold keeps shifting; sell them off when the prices are surging to make the most out of them.


Scrap metal dealers

Look for scrap metal dealers who will do all the sorting and buy the scrap metal off you at the best and most compatible prices.
