Ferrous vs. Nonferrous Recycling Metals
Ferrous scrap metals and alloys contain iron and include wrought iron, cast iron, mild steel, carbon steel and stainless steel. The iron content in these metals makes them more rigid than nonferrous metals. With the exception of stainless steel and wrought iron, ferrous metals are more prone to rust and corrosion than nonferrous metals.
If you’re not sure whether your recyclable metal is ferrous or nonferrous, our friendly staff will be happy to help you make the determination.
