Metals we buy
We recycle all types of aluminum metals and aluminum cans . As a rule of thumb, 30 cans typically make up to 1 pound. There is no difference between a soda can or a beer can, they are all the same. We give you price bonus when you recycle over 100 pounds of cans too! Other types of aluminum we buy airplane aluminum, aluminum shavings, siding and sheet aluminum, extrusion (window frames), car wheels, and aluminum radiators.

We buy all kinds of steel and iron and the pounds can add up fast because steel is one of the more dense and heavier metals. From appliances to rebar, chain link fencing, tin, and a lot more. Steel is in just about everything. Please note: we do not accept anything with refrigerants such as refrigerators, freezers, or air conditioners. Those carry freon which is unsafe for the environment if not handled by authorized experts.
