The easiest way to determine what type of metal you’re dealing with is to use a magnet. If the magnet sticks to your metal, you have a ferrous metal in your hands, such as steel or iron. Most ferrous metals are not worth much money at scrap yards, but the scrap yard will still accept it and make sure it is recycled properly.
If the magnet doesn’t stick, you have a non-ferrous metal, such as copper, aluminum, brass, stainless steel. These metals are very valuable to recycle and are worth more money at scrap yards.
From there, you can use color, texture and other visual aids to figure out exactly what type of metal you’re dealing with.
Non-ferrous metals, such as copper, aluminum, brass, stainless steel are worth more money at scrap yards. Ferrous metals, like steel are not as valuable, but scrap yards will still accept these metals for recycling.
This basic guide will give you a general estimate of how much each type of metal is worth at a scrap yard. But the best way to determine the payout you’ll receive in your area is to call each scrap yard individually ahead of time.
