Ferrous Metals: The Backbone of Recycling

At Crestwood Scraps, ferrous metals constitute a significant portion of our recycling operations. Ferrous metals are those that contain iron, making them magnetic and prone to rust. Common examples include steel and iron. These metals are widely used in construction, automotive industries, and manufacturing, making their recycling essential for sustainable industrial practices.

When you recycle ferrous metals with Crestwood Scraps, you contribute to reducing the need for raw material extraction, which conserves natural resources and reduces energy consumption. Our state-of-the-art facilities ensure that ferrous metals are processed efficiently, turning old, unusable items into valuable resources for new products.

Non-Ferrous Metals: High-Value Recycling

Non-ferrous metals, which do not contain iron, are also a significant focus at Crestwood Scraps. These metals, including aluminum, copper, brass, and stainless steel, are highly valuable and widely used across various industries due to their resistance to corrosion and high conductivity.

Aluminum, for example, is commonly found in cans, window frames, and car parts. Recycling aluminum saves up to 95% of the energy required to produce new aluminum from raw ore. Copper, another crucial non-ferrous metal, is extensively used in electrical wiring and plumbing. By recycling copper, you help reduce the environmental impact of mining and refining processes.

At Crestwood Scraps, we ensure that non-ferrous metals are sorted and processed with precision, allowing these valuable materials to be reused in manufacturing, thus supporting a circular economy.
