Frequent Metal Recycling Questions

What kinds of metal do scrap yards take?

The most prevalent metals accepted by scrap yards include copper, steel, aluminum, brass, iron and wires of all kinds. However, your hometown scrap yard may well process additional materials for recycling and give you cash payouts for your scrap metals. If you are unsure what you have or what you ought to do, phone Smart Recycling and we’ll have a friendly specialist reply to every one of your questions for you.

What kind of metals do I have?

When you are attempting to recycle scrap metal it is very valuable to recognize what variations of metal you have. The most basic technique to determine what type of metal you’re dealing with is to apply a magnet. If the magnet sticks to your metal, you have a ferrous metal in your hands, such as steel or iron.
If the magnet does not stick, you have a non-ferrous metal, such as copper, aluminum, brass, stainless steel or bronze. These metals tend to be more desireable to companies like Smart Recycling.
Then, you can use colors, feel and other aesthetic techniques to figure out specifically what category of metal you’re dealing with. If you are still uncertain, give us a call and we will be glad to aid you in any way we can.

Will SRI provide me with the specifications and number of containers appropriate for picking up scrap?

Definitely. Not only does Smart Recycling provide containers for steadily generated scrap, we will also make available custom sized containers of any size to cater to handling and sorting needs.

How is the cost per pound identified and preserved for present and upcoming purchases?

All metal values are set upon marketplace conditions daily. The strategy most used by Smart Recycling is centered on the published Metal Market Report found in the American Market Journal; which may be provided if requested. Using this report as a guideline, an agreed upon margin of plus or minus published prices can be set for all foreseeable future purchases.

Once we make a request for pick-up, how long will it take for the actual pick up of our scrap?

If a call for service is placed before 10 am of any weekday there is a very good chance of receiving same day services. However, all service calls received will be satisfied no later than next day guaranteed. Special need conditions are managed precipitously.

How soon after material has been picked up and weighed will we get payment?

It is strictly at the discretion of the agent representing its business, traditionally, payments are initiated inside a 30-day period of receiving metals. However, we will pay out for all settlements inside the time period identified by our clients.

How long have you been operating?

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