Recycling Maintenance Scrap Metal

Use Finger Lakes Recycling to recycle maintenance scrap metal. It’s likely that you acquire a significant amount of maintenance scrap metal if you work for a maintenance shop, auto repair shop, or industrial supplier. Managers then need to determine what to do with the excess inventory. In addition to keeping this material, which is in short supply, out of landfills, recycling metal can also be profitable.

How to Recycle Maintenance Scrap Metal

  • Your scrap metal material should contain at least 50% metal. If a material is primarily made of metal, recycling it is still worthwhile even if it is surrounded by plastic.
  • Separate the metal from the product if it has a small bit of metal but is simple to remove. For instance, a three-ring binder made of plastic is not scrap metal, but you may take the metal rings off.
  • There are two types of scrap metal: ferrous (contains iron, like steel), and nonferrous (everything else). Assess whether your metal is ferrous or nonferrous. This can be accomplished with a magnet. Nonferrous metals are not attracted by magnets while ferrous metals are.
  • Contact Finger Lakes Recycling to take care of the rest!
