Scrap Non Ferrous Metal
Non ferrous metals can be defined as metals that don’t contain an iron compound. Metals such as copper, bronze, aluminium, brass and lead are classed as non ferrous. You can tell if a metal is non-ferrous depending on whether or not they are magnetic, as a magnet will not attach to a non-ferrous metal.
Scrap Ferrous Metal
Ferrous metals tend to be metals like cast iron, wrought iron, steel and cast steel. The thing that these all have in common is that they all contain an iron compound. Ferrous metals are normally used in items such as automobiles, cans, stoves, cookers and fridges. Also, all types of ferrous metals are magnetic.
