Getting The Most Cash At The Scrap Yard

Houston, TX, USA, 2019-Aug-16 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — You are probably looking for a scrap yard nearby and got to this page, please click the below link if you searched for a scrap yard near me and need a nearby recycling company. Local scrap yards

Scrap Yards Nearby

Scrap yards are local metal recycling centers, they purchase metals including iron, stainless steel, brass, copper, aluminum & lead.

They will also buy electronics, appliances or cars to dismantle them and sell the steel mill or larger scrap brokers. If you would like to learn how metal is recycled view our article How scrap metal is recycled to learn more.

The metal that scrap yards generate will get melted and reused, that being the case they are a must for our environment.

Here are some tips that will help you to get the most cash from your metal when recycling:

1. Research.

Knowledge is power, and this is the case even at the scrap yard.

Whatever kind of metal you are going to sell will need to be graded by the scrap yard.

As an example, insulated copper wire or any other copper will be (#1 or #2) depending on a combination of the gauge of copper, insulation type, copper coatings including tin, silver & shellac.

If you have scraps such as plate, sheet or any other for it will depend on if the copper is painted or has other metals attached to it.

#1 copper that has no insulation or coating will always be worth more than #2 copper, that’s why you need to know what you have before you call or go to the scrap yard.

2. More is better.

Bringing larger amounts of weight to the scrap yard will give you more negotiating power.

So figure you have a huge amount of aluminum, the scrap yard is going to really want your business more than they would from someone bringing in a small pick up load.

Local recycling centers make their profit by the ton working on any where from $50 to $400 depending on how much they have to invest in the metal.

By gathering a large amount of weight you maybe able to get $100 more on a ton of your scrap then if it was 500 lbs. and 4 trips to the yard not to mention you save on fuel, also keep in mind that when at a yard there is a 50/50 chance of getting a flat so unless you have $500-$600 or more worth of scrap metal its just not worth it.

3. Separate Your Scrap Metal.

Prior to going to the scrap yard, separate all your metal.

By doing this you will get better scrap metal prices which is an important key to getting the most money for your scrap.

Some pointers:

  • Use a magnet to separate magnetic metal (ferrous) which is worth less than non-magnetic metal non-ferrous metals click to learn more.
  • Sort your ferrous metal into a tin/steel pile.
  • Sort your non-ferrous metal into into other piles such as copper, brass and aluminum.
  • Also sort any metal by cleanliness. Example: Clean aluminum blocks will be worth more than a aluminum cylinder head which will have a metal valve cover, steel valves, springs and steel studs.

Types Of Scrap Metal:

There are many different types of scrap metal you will encounter in the metal recycling process.

Typical metals include iron, aluminum, brass, copper & stainless steel, of these scrap metals copper is the most sought after and is part of scrap metals classified as non ferrous, non ferrous meaning no iron or minimal iron present and non magnetic “Iron is magnetic”, non ferrous metals include copper, brass and aluminum.

Where these metals can be found:

  • Iron can be found in most anything including cars, heavy machinery, structural steel & more.
  • Aluminum can be found in Aircraft frames and parts, automobile engines, heads and transmissions, commercial window frames and window frames.
  • Brass can be found in water meters, ammunitions, fixtures, faucets and plumbing supplies.
  • Copper can be found in washing machines, automobiles “engine harness, alternators & starters, electrical equipment, electric motors and transformers.
  • Stainless steel can be found in the food and restaurant industry prep stations, chemical plants for storage of chemicals and many other products.

The Scrap Yard:

Once the metal is gathered it will find it’s way to the local metal recycling center “Scrap yard” where the metal will be unloaded usually using a crane with a magnet or hydraulic grapple attachment, smaller pieces of scrap metal can be unloaded by hand. It will then be separated and then shredded, torched or made into smaller pieces by any other means necessary.

The scrap will then be separated into different piles and non ferrous metals will be further separated into various categories.

The Steel Mill:

When ready the scrap metal will be loaded onto trucks that will haul it off to it’s final destination, “the steel mill” or aluminum foundry etc. where the metal will be recycled and melted into new iron/steel plates, blocks, beams etc. the metal is melted by high voltage electrodes, flux and other chemicals maybe added to purify/clean the metal, pressurized air may also introduced to help achieve high carbon steel which is much stronger than cast iron.
Other metals maybe introduced in very small amounts as well such as nickel, chrome or molybdenum to make an even stronger high strength steel such as chrome moly steel or 4140 steel.

SyndicIT Announces Nationwide IT Equipment Recycling Program Tailored for Multifamily and Commercial Real Estate Owners and Operators and Their Residents

New service promotes sustainability and corporate social responsibility initiatives for residential properties across the United States. Unused equipment ranging from PCs to printers to mobile devices can now be responsibly disposed of for profit or for donation to charity.

Kensington, NH, USA (October 22, 2013) — SyndicIT Services Corporation (SyndicIT) today introduced a new nationwide service for multifamily and commercial real estate customers allowing them to responsibly dispose of unused or outdated IT equipment for profit through SyndicIT’s collaboration with Hewlett-Packard’s certified recycling network. The service will be delivered to customers via an on-line portal designed for real estate owners and operators. The SyndicIT re-cycling website calculates the value of equipment a property would like to recycle and instantly generates a shipping label to send the equipment directly to Hewlett-Packard for responsible, secure re-cycling and material reuse in compliance with regulatory standards for equipment disposal.

The service is an especially valuable addition to SyndicIT’s suite of solutions for the multifamily industry who are converting to digital operations and want to demonstrate a commitment to the environment by promoting ‘paperless’ property operations. “One motto at SyndicIT is that our company strives to be ‘as green as green gets’ while delivering measurable returns on technology investments,” says Lauryn Schimmel, SyndicIT’s managing director. “As we work with our customers to refresh their IT landscape with state-of-the-art technologies for property automation, a recycling program whereby owners can responsibly dispose of old or out dated equipment is an ideal addition. Helping our customers actually get paid for the equipment they re-cycle brings cash value to difficult to dispose of unused hardware, devices, and equipment.”

SyndicIT will work with property owners across the country to establish recycling programs for their corporate divisions and property offices, as well as to design a series of ‘resident recycling days’ that will allow property owners to deliver a valuable amenity service to their residents and help them easily access a responsible recycling arrangement that delivers cash. Once equipment is assessed for value, properties and residents will have the choice of getting the rebate as a check, as an HP gift card or donate the proceeds to a charity of choice.

“Properties must grapple with increasingly mandatory local, state, and federal ordinances to responsibly dispose of unused electronics equipment. SyndicIT’s new recycling program provides property owners with a single resource to design the recycling program of their choice and to deliver the most value and remain in regulatory compliance.” Schimmel added, “And, it will be a great way to involve residents and have them participate in an environmentally-friendly community based program and event that will impact their choice and pride in the community they choose to live.”

SyndicIT brings this program to multifamily and commercial real estate customers with the backing of an established, certified, recycling infrastructure built by Hewlett-Packard. Since 1972, Hewlett-Packard has responsibly recycled 2.5 billion pounds of electronic products and supplies. This announcement marks the beginning of an initiative designed to reach millions of Americans living in rental communities today.

Crown Recycling at The Forefront After Hurricane Sandy

The Crown Recycling Facility in New York serves all of Long Island and the Five Boroughs and is committed to using the most innovative equipment available today.

Calverton, NY, December 12, 2012 – The Crown Recycling Facility in New York serves all of Long Island and the Five Boroughs and is committed to using the most innovative equipment available today. The Rossano family is constantly sourcing new ways to recycle incoming materials that can be reused on job sites and elsewhere in the community. This helps preserve the environment and keep waste out of the landfill.

Since the 1970’s, Crown Recycling has supplied all of New York with disposal removal. With the ability to process 50 tons of waste per hour, Crown Recycling is the leader when it comes to recycling solid waste.

When Hurricane Sandy devastated portions of the Mid-Atlantic, the Caribbean, and the Northeastern United States, Crown Recycling took action. Sandy spanned 1,100 miles with losses estimated at 6.5 billion dollars. More than 253 people lost their lives along the path of Hurricane Sandy in seven countries.

When Governor Andrew Cuomo declared a state of emergency on October 26, Crown Recycling was ready to begin the massive cleanup. In Long Island, voluntary evacuations were ordered because of the South Shore storm surge.

With the massive flooding of most of the Eastern Seaboard, Crown Recycling has moved an estimated five million cubic yards of debris. Hundreds of people are still without power as the team from Crown Recycling continues the clean-up effort 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Crown will not stop until the giant piles of waste have been cleaned up and moved to their recycling center and landfills in Upper State New York.

Of course with the clean up comes the need to recycle, and thanks to the innovative equipment from Crown Recycling, debris can be recycled and repurposed, and converted to mulch, compost, crushed concrete and other useable materials.

The massive clean up of debris after hurricane Sandy is an overwhelming task, but the team from Crown Recycling has taken it all in stride. In a combined effort with the state of New York, Crown Recycling hopes to move 20,000 cubic yards of debris every day until the clean-up is completed. Workers say that driving through the streets of Long Island, New York and the Five Burroughs is indescribable.

The clean up must move as fast as possible so that communities can begin to rebuild. A delay in cleanup could cause health problems if the waterlogged waste is left to rot. Fortunately, Crown Recycling is still on the job helping with the storm recovery efforts and debris removal.

Acorn Office Announces New Battery Recycling Collection Bin

The leading manufacturer of recycling bins, Acorn Office Products based in Gloucestershire, is proud to announce the launch of their latest innovation – the Battery Recycling Collection Bin.

Gloucestershire, UK, November 16, 2010 — The leading manufacturer of recycling bins, Acorn Office Products based in Gloucestershire, is proud to announce the launch of their latest innovation – the Battery Recycling Collection Bin, allowing offices and homes a place to dispose of used batteries which can then be passed on for recycling.

The ‘Battery Recycling Collection Bin’ ( http://www.paperrecyclingbins.co.uk ) allows used office batteries to be dropped through a series of small holes in the upper surface, this helps prevent mobile phone and other potentially dangerous non standard (office / domestic) batteries from being deposited in the same collection container.

Six peal-able self adhesive labels are supplied. Four labels are printed with suggested possible uses for labeling on the display ‘header card’. Two blank labels are supplied for your own text or to display or promotional message.

The labeling system could also be used to denote who is running your recycling scheme, ( http://www.paperrecyclingbins.co.uk ) or perhaps which contractor is responsible for collection of your battery waste. This gives community buildings and offices the chance to promote an environmentally friendly approach to recycling batteries, something every business needs to be seen doing in this day and age.

A precautionary message panel is displayed at the rear of the recycling collection bin which relates to Health & Safety, Collection & Storage. Businesses are advised to have a commercial waste contract in place for the disposal of their batteries. ( http://www.paperrecyclingbins.co.uk ) Your waste collector must be licensed to collect used batteries

As of 1st February 2010, distributors of batteries (who sell over 32kg) have been required to take back used batteries from their customers.

This product comes flat packed for storage and transportation and is quick & easy to assemble.

So, if you want to add these amazing battery recycling boxes to your office, factory, community building or home, check out the website by visiting http://www.paperrecyclingbins.co.uk or drop them a line on 01594 810 610
