Merrillville Metal Recycling buys ferrous and non-ferrous metals. We pay for these materials based on weight; ferrous scrap metals, which are not only iron and iron-based steel items, but also magnetic, are priced by the ton. Non-ferrous scrap metals – which include aluminum, copper, brass, and other specialty metals – are priced by the pound.
The price we pay for scrap metals is determined by several factors, including:
- The grade of the material,
- The cost to procure your material, and
- The cost to process your scrap for sale to the mills and foundries that buy from us.
The more effective you are in preparing your scrap in a manner that reduces our procurement and processing costs, the higher the price we are able to pay for your materials.
