Scrap Metal Buying: A Rising Industry

Scrap metal buyers are those who purchase scrap metal either for themselves or for the organization that they are affiliated with. These companies or groups collect scrap metal; and afterwards either sell them to other companies or process it themselves. Some big buyers have their own containers as well as other equipments to sort, collect, and renew the scrap metal that they themselves procured.

Scrap metals can be made from substances like lead, iron or copper. Aside from this, alloys are also made available by combining brass and bronze materials. These are further divided into two types: ferrous, meaning iron-containing scraps and non-ferrous which are non iron-containing scraps. Both are collected and sorted by scrap metal buyers but with varying prices, nonferrous scraps may range from 5 to 35 cents per pound while ferrous scraps range from 7 to 9 dollars per pound, this depends on the metals size, thickness and the scrap metal buyer. Afterwards these materials are burned to remove any impurities such as dirt, grime. After this process the metals are melted and blended into primary metals or into alloys.
