Scrap metal recycling – where old, obsolete and outdated products are purchased and processed into raw materials used to manufacture new products – is a vital first step in our global manufacturing supply chain. And recent independent research shows there is enough material available to meet domestic manufacturers’ demand for these recycled materials for the foreseeable future.
We Buy Scrap is Arizona’s leading buyer of all ferrous and non-ferrous metals. We are committed to paying you top dollar for all of your unwanted metals. From our central location in Maricopa County, we service the cities of Chandler, Gilbert, Glendale, Mesa, Scottsdale, Tempe, Phoenix and Peoria, Arizona.
Ferrous and non-ferrous scrap is recovered from a wide range of obsolete consumer, commercial, and industrial sources – everything from soft-drink containers to automobile radiators to electronics and airplanes. The leftover materials from punched out aluminum and brass sheets generated in machine shops – all of these scrap materials are processed into specification grade commodities for manufacturing into new products. Building products such as aluminum windows, brass piping and copper wiring can be recovered from demolition, remodeling and renovation projects.
- Ferrous metals are metals which are iron-based. The most common of these being steel, which can be found in cars, household appliances, construction beams and food cans.
- Non-ferrous metals refer to scrap metal other than iron and steel, which include: aluminum, copper, lead, zinc, nickel, titanium, cobalt, chromium, and precious metals.
