You might be able to sell scrap metal for cash if you have it on your property. Our scrap metal buyers will weigh your scrap metal, perform all metal separation, and pay you cash on the spot. While all scrap metal should be recycled to keep it out of landfills and save resources, some scrap metal is more valuable than others. Here's everything you need to know about the most valuable scrap metals and how to get started
Here's a rundown of some of the most prevalent scrap metals and their respective values.
Copper Aside from gold and silver, copper is by far the most valuable scrap metal on the market. Scrap copper could be reimbursed at a rate of $2-$4 per pound (note: these values can change depending on the market). Copper is extremely valuable since it is utilised in so many different applications, including electrical wiring, plumbing, and electromagnetics.
Brass Brass is another expensive metal that is highly sought after in the scrap sector. Brass isn't as widely used as steel, copper, or aluminium. Recycling brass is also far more cost-effective than producing new brass, which is one of the reasons it's so valuable in the waste metal recycling sector.
Aluminum Aluminum is a valuable metal, even if it does not pay much per pound. Aluminum is valuable to scrappers because it can be recycled an endless number of times and because recycling aluminium uses over 90% less energy than producing new aluminium.
Silver Silver is, of course, quite expensive, despite the fact that it is rarely brought to the scrap yard. However, if you have older silver pieces laying around, you might be able to make some fast cash by bringing them to a scrap yard to be recycled.
Stainless steel Stainless steel is the king of metals in many ways. It's employed in a variety of industries for a variety of purposes. However, because there is so much of it, it is frequently considered less precious than more difficult-to-find metals like copper and brass. However, there is still money to be made from steel recycling.
Gold Gold is a valuable precious metal, far more so than other sorts of waste metal. Again, if you have old gold pieces laying around—from jewellery to vases to old coins—recycling them may be more profitable than pawning them.
Lead Finally, lead is precious when recycled, despite the fact that pure forms of the metal are difficult to come by.
