Tall Ingots buy all types of non ferrous products. Non ferrous products do not contain iron therefore the easiest way to tell if a product is non ferrous like aluminium, copper, zinc, lead or nickel is to use a magnet. If the magnet sticks then more than likely it will contain iron. If it doesn’t stick then it will likely be non ferrous.

All metals have the ability to be recycled over and over again without loosing any of their properties and this includes non ferrous metals. Delivering your non ferrous materials to Tall Ingots will help promote the recycling of metals and thus positively impact the environment. Below is a list of common non ferrous products we currently purchase.
