  • Ferrous metals contain iron, and are magnetic. These are low cost metals and are recycled in huge amounts. Steel and cast iron are ferrous metals. Ferrous metals can be found in industrial applications such as grinders, nuts & bolts, cutting tools, pipes, gears, automobiles, garden tools and machinery.
  • Non-ferrous metals do not contain iron, are non-magnetic and have a higher value. These metals include: aluminum, copper, stainless steel, brass, lead, and zinc. These metals are typically found in aircraft parts, window frames, vehicle parts, electrical wire, cables, water pipes and casings.
  • Precious metals have the highest value, these metals include: gold, silver, platinum, titanium and nickel alloys.
