As scrap metal merchants, we accept ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metal. Some scrap metal merchants in Great Yarmouth only collect ferrous metal because they don’t have the sorting facilities to process non-ferrous material. Our company accepts both, but we do recommend that you sort them into different containers ahead of collection or separate them for easy identification if you bring them to our yard personally. This helps us to deal with you sooner, and helps you to receive a faster payment from us. To find out more, please get in touch with our team today.
Typical examples of ferrous scrap metal include cast iron and wrought iron. There are also some steel types, carbon steel and stainless steel in particular, that fall into the ferrous metal category even though they are alloy materials. Ferrous scrap metal is more tensile, has a higher melting point, shapes easily and is a good conductor of heat and electricity. It is easy to identify ferrous material by the fact it is magnetic.
Typical examples of non-ferrous scrap metal include aluminium, brass, copper, lead, nickel and zinc. Each material is noticeably different from the next and has a wider range of production applications. The staff at our yard in Great Yarmouth identify non-ferrous metals through it being non-magnetic (principally because it has no iron content). If a magnet doesn’t stick to a metal, it falls into the non-ferrous category.
