How to get started with scrap metal pickup in Mississauga
August 08, 2016

If you have extraneous metal lying around your workplace or home site, you may be able to take advantage of scrap metal pickup in Mississauga to add a couple extra dollars to your wallet. Why keep metal you have no intention of ever utilizing laying around when you can sell it to gain additional revenue you can use elsewhere? Alnor Industries is one such buyer and provider of scrap metal pickup in Mississauga – if you’re interested in using some of our services, here are some tips on getting started.

The first thing you should consider before you call us about scrap metal pickup in Mississauga is whether you are in possession of ferrous or non-ferrous metals. To do this, try and find a magnet in your house. Any kind of magnet will do, even a standard fridge magnet can work. With the magnet, try to stick the magnet to the metal you have around. If the magnet sticks, you have a ferrous metal such as steel or iron. Ferrous metal is more common and thus isn’t worth as much recycled, but can definitely still be worthwhile with larger quantities. If the magnet doesn’t stick to the metal, you have a non-ferrous metal like copper, brass, or aluminum. These metals are much more valuable with recycled and should be your priority when sorting what you want to recycle and what you want to keep.

Many homeowners feel somewhat intimidated when calling for scrap metal pickup in Mississauga but it doesn’t have to be a challenging process. By sorting your metals in advance, we are able to quickly identify your metals and return you their appropriate value. Contact Alnor Industries next time you are interested in getting rid of your used scrap metal.
