Get Rid of your Metal Clutter!

Posted by: admin in MRCBlogs

Almost everything around the house is recyclable. Homeowners, who avidly recycle their garbage and unusable items, get a good price for their junk. Junk includes: air conditioners, bathtubs, aluminum cans, bicycles, microwaves, copper pipes, cast iron, hot water heaters, pots and pans, brass, motors, automotive parts and aluminum steel ladders. Also, cash is a good reason to clean out the yard or garage.

Depending on what type of metal can vary the cost too. There are two different kinds of metal: ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metal. Ferrous metal is iron while non-ferrous metal is aluminum and copper. Non-ferrous scrap metal can be sold at a higher price than the ferrous scrap metal. If you don’t know whether you have ferrous or non-ferrous, Marietta Recycling Center can determine the difference by using a magnet.

Thanks for the listed item samples, kinda puts things into perspective. Is there much of a benefit for me to separate the metals from plastic, or do you provide that service? I mean, if I make more money doing the separation I would like to know that in advance.

Hi Allen,

yes you will recieve more money for metals that are seperated from non-mettalics. This is to include any types of non-ferrous. example- you will recieve more for a aluminum car wheel if you take off the wheel wieghts and any steel.

Residential Atlanta Scrap Service
written by Frank G, October 21, 2010
Does your company offer a residential service in the Atlanta area for picking up scrap metal? I understand that there has to be some sort of volume to make it worth your companies time, or a service fee. Just was wondering if your recycling company offered this service.
