Smart Recycling FAQ

What type of scrap metal does Smart Recycling accept?

The most common metals picked up by scrap yards include copper, steel, aluminum, brass, iron and insulated wires of all varieties. But, your local scrap yard will certainly approve additional materials for recycling and present you with cash payouts for your scrap metals. If you are confused about what you have or what you should do, give a call to Smart Recycling and we will have a friendly specialist answer every one of your questions for you.

How do i tell what type of metal I have?

When you are looking to recycle scrap metal it is very valuable to determine what variations of metal you possess. 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 possession, such as steel or iron.

If the magnet doesn’t stick, you have a non-ferrous metal, such as copper, aluminum, brass, stainless steel or bronze. These metals tend to be more important to a company like Smart Recycling.

From there, you can distinguish colors, texture and other visual guidelines to figure out exactly what type of metal you’re working with. If you are still doubtful, call us and we will be glad to aid you in any way we can.

Will SRI offer the specifications and number of containers necessary for collecting scrap?

Certainly. Not only does Smart Recycling furnish containers for continuous generated scrap, we will also offer custom sized bins of any size to accommodate handling and sorting needs.

How is the cost per lb determined and maintained for present and upcoming acquisitions?

Almost all metal values are set upon industry conditions day-by-day. The technique most applied by Smart Recycling is based on the published Metal Market Report found in the American Market Journal; which can be provided if need be. Working with this report as a guide, an agreed upon margin of plus or minus published values can be set for all upcoming purchases.

How quickly can Smart Recycling pick up after we call for service?

If a request for collection is received before 10am of any weekday there’s a incredibly good chance of getting same day services. However, all service calls received will be satisfied no later than next day guaranteed. Special need circumstances are treated expeditiously.

How fast will we get payment after analysis, weigh in and pick up?

It is entirely at the discretion of the agent representing its organization, normally, payments are made within a thirty-day period of receiving scrap. Even so, Smart Recycling will pay for all agreements inside the time period determined by our customers.

For how long have you been in business?

Salvatore J. Russo started Smart Recycling as Russo Metal Company in 1978. Back then the focus was purely industrial scrap. As time went on, the recycling division was created, and after that surplus sales, then Dumpster rentals. In 1995 Russo Metal Co. was incorporated under the name Smart Recycling, short for Scrap Metal And Recycling Technologies.
