What is Scrap Metal?

Scrap metal encompasses any discarded metal object or material that can be reprocessed and transformed into new products. This can include many items, from small household appliances and discarded tools to larger structures like automobiles and industrial equipment.  The composition of scrap metal can vary greatly, encompassing pure metals and various alloys, each with unique properties and applications.

Scrap metal isn’t merely waste; it’s a valuable commodity. By recycling scrap metal, you not only declutter your space and earn money but also contribute significantly to environmental conservation. The recycling process consumes less energy and produces fewer greenhouse gas emissions than extracting and refining new metals from raw materials. At Crestwood Metal Corp, we recognize the inherent value of scrap metal and offer competitive prices to incentivize recycling efforts within our community.

Ferrous Metals

Ferrous metals are the workhorses of the metal world. These metals, primarily composed of iron, are known for their strength, durability, and magnetic properties. Steel and iron, the two most common ferrous metals, are the backbone of countless industries and everyday objects.

Steel, an iron and carbon alloy, is versatile and widely used in construction, manufacturing, automotive, and even household appliances.  We accept various grades and forms of steel, from sheet metal and structural steel to discarded appliances and machinery components. Iron, often found in cast iron products like pipes, engine blocks, and machine parts, is another valuable ferrous metal we readily accept for recycling.

Non-Ferrous Metals

As the name suggests, non-ferrous metals lack a significant iron content. These metals are prized for their diverse properties, such as excellent conductivity, corrosion resistance, and malleability. Due to their specialized applications, they often command higher prices in the scrap metal market.

Crestwood Metal Corp is well-equipped to handle a wide array of non-ferrous metals. We accept aluminum, commonly used in cans, foil, automotive parts, and construction materials; copper, a highly conductive metal found in electrical wiring, plumbing pipes, and electronics; brass, an alloy of copper and zinc often used in decorative fixtures, musical instruments, and plumbing fittings; stainless steel, known for its resistance to rust and corrosion, used in kitchen appliances, medical equipment, and industrial applications; and lead, a dense metal historically used in batteries, pipes, and roofing materials, which we handle responsibly due to its potential environmental impact.

Other Recyclable Metals

Beyond the everyday ferrous and non-ferrous metals, a wide array of other recyclable metals play essential roles in various industries and applications. These metals, often less common and more specialized, are highly sought-after for their unique properties and the value they bring to specific products.

Crestwood Metal Corp welcomes these specialty metals, including nickel, a crucial component in stainless steel alloys, batteries, and electroplating processes; titanium, revered for its strength, lightweight nature, and biocompatibility, making it ideal for aerospace, medical implants, and high-performance sporting goods; and zinc, primarily used to galvanize steel, protecting it from corrosion and extending its lifespan.
