If you are unsure whether the metal product you have is a ferrous material, you can test it with a magnet. This will usually indicate the presence of iron or alloy thereof within the metal product. We don’t just accept pure metals or metal products, we also take metal by-products. This is thanks to our ferrous metal recycling Dorset system being able to reuse the metal inside the by-product by way of separation.
A ferrous metal means that it contains iron, hence why the magnet is a good way to check the metal. Anything containing a suitable amount of iron, nickel, or cobalt, such as steel, alnico, and other ferroalloys, will be magnetic. Our ferrous metal recycling Dorset can take any of these metal products for recycling.
Our ferrous metal recycling Dorset can also cater for the many commonly used alloys and metal that do not contain iron. Aluminium is the second most commonly used metal in the world. To produce just one kilogram of “virgin” aluminium (from bauxite) takes 227 – 342MJ of energy, whereas recycling and reusing only takes 11.4 – 17.1MJ of energy (that’s a saving of 95% energy!). The energy saved by recycling one can save enough energy to manufacture another 20 cans, as opposed to disposing and creating a new can.
Our non-ferrous and ferrous metal recycling Dorset will be able to take away your scrap metal and offer you the best price for your scrap metal. We use a state of the art computer system to keep up to date with the market values of the various metals you will dispose of using our ferrous metal recycling Dorset. This ensures you are getting the best price for your metals.
