List of Recyclable Materials

When I started in this business, I focused on three types of scrap materials: metals, plastic and bottles. I wanted to add scrap paper in my list but I didn't have a storage area that is covered.

Anyway, there are too many types of scrap materials so I will only be listing those I am familiar with. Here's a list of recyclable materials:


Two Types of Scrap Metal:

Nonferrous metals
- metals that contain little or no iron. They are not magnetic and are usually more resistant to corrosion than ferrous metals.They include precious metals such as gold, silver, platinum, magnesium. Nonferrous metals also include specialty metals such as titanium, cobalt, chromium, tungsten and metal alloys made of a combination of two or three metals such as brass which is made of copper and zinc, bronze which is a blend of copper, tin and zinc.
  • copper red & copper yellow
  • alum jalousy (most expensive type of alum)
  • aluminum light & aluminum heavy
  • alum cans - used beverage cans
  • alum caps/crowns (cheapest type of alum)
  • alum kaldero
  • radiator & radiator loose (haven't tried buying these) :D
  • condenser & condenser loose
