Collecting – Collect all scrap metal in and around your facility daily. Make sure there is a centralized and dedicated area for collecting all ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metals.
Separating – Separate as much of metals as possible, this is important for high-quality recycling. Sort all the ferrous metals from the non-ferrous metals. A rule of thumb is that most ferrous metals, such as steel, are magnetic. Stainless steel is an exception because this metal contains a low percentage of iron. Therefore it doesn’t always react to magnets that well.
Sorting – Sorted metals are more valuable than mixed metals. So for the highest price of your scrap, it is recommended to sort the metals into single streams of alloy steel, carbon steel, wrought iron, brass, copper, aluminum, lead, zinc, tin, bronze, and precious metals like gold and silver. Some metals are difficult to identify. There are tools to identify metals, such as X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzers.
Cleaning – Clean the scrap metals thoroughly, because scrap dealers and mills prefer clean scrap metals. Remove anything that isn’t metal such as glass, wood, or plastic. For instance strip electrical copper wiring with a wire stripper to remove the plastic layer. The main benefit of cleaned scrap metal is more transparent pricing.
Cutting – If possible, cut large pieces of scrap metal to reduce the volume of the material. This will save up space in your facility and it is easier to efficiently fill up the scrap metal containers.
Weighing – After sorting and cleaning the scrap metal, it is recommended to weigh the sorted metals so you know exactly how much scrap metal you separated at your location. It also gives you insight into how to reduce the number of metals you are using and wasting in your company.
