If you have scrap metal on your property, your first thought might be just to throw it away. But don’t be so quick to just dump it and have it end up rotting away in a landfill. At Tall Ingots, we provide scrap metal bins, to help recycle your scrap metal, and we purchase it from you at premium prices.
Metals are a great material to recycle because they do not lose any of their important properties in the recycling process and can be used repeatedly. So, ensuring that they do not find their way into a landfill, and instead are recycled properly is our priority.
Reserve a bin from us, and you can easily gather all scrap metal at your site, and then we can come and pick it up. We offer a wide range of bin sizes to accommodate projects large or small. We can also work with all types of sites and materials, so whether you are doing a household job disposing of scrap, or working an industrial site, we can take care of you.
Types of Metal We Work With
We purchase many different types of metals, including ferrous and non-ferrous metals, along with e-waste.
Non-Ferrous materials do not contain iron, so an easy way to identify if your material is non-ferrous, is to see if it is magnetic.
Common non-ferrous metals and their typical scrap forms include:
- Aluminium: Wire, cans, wheels, and window framing
- Copper: Copper wire and tubes used in plumbing
- Zinc: Die-cast toys, Car components
- Lead: Old car and motorcycle Batteries
- Nickel: Some stainless-steel kitchen utensils
If your site has a large quantity of any of these scrap metals, consider reserving a scrap bin from Tall Ingots, so that we can recycle them properly and you can get paid.
As opposed to non-ferrous materials, ferrous materials do contain iron, so an easy way to identify them is to see if they are magnetic.
Ferrous materials will usually refer to steel products. Some steel products we currently purchase are:
- Light Steel & White Goods: Household appliances like washing machines, microwaves, dishwashers, and others fall into this category. Roofing Iron as well.
- Heavy Steel: This usually means heavier gauge metal products, typically over 6ml thick.
- Cast Iron: Older cast iron furniture and machine parts.
- Specialty Ferrous: Things like manganese steels, carbon steels, and other mixes. If you are unsure if we can purchase your product, do not hesitate to contact us.
Steel products are widely used, and iron mining can be a harmful process for the environment. By recycling your ferrous metal products, we can help reduce the need for this iron mining.
As you upgrade your devices, and new hardware becomes the standard, it can be easy to accumulate electronic waste. Even the smallest electronics can be recycled, so before you dispose of old and unneeded electronics, allow us to recycle them for you.
Some common examples of E-Waste are:
- Individual computer parts
- Small and Large Appliances
- Medical equipment and accessories
- Laptops, computers, LCD TV screens
Whether it is as small as a DVD, or as large as a server, it is important to recycle your e-waste. Electronics contain chemicals as well as metals, so if they are disposed of improperly, then they can be harmful to the environment. Help your wallet and the environment by reserving a bin to dispose of your e-waste.
