Maybe you recently cleaned out your garage. Maybe you need to declutter your tool shed. Perhaps you just need some extra money for a rainy day. In any scenario, GT Scrap recycling can help you turn your trash into cash. One way you can do this is by recycling your non-ferrous metals. Recycling these materials is a win-win for every party involved. You get to fatten up your wallet and help keep the environment clean.
Non-ferrous scrap metal is any metal or alloy that does not contain iron. These metals are not magnetic, which is one way you can determine for yourself what type of scrap metal you are dealing with. Non-ferrous metals are also more resilient when compared to ferrous ones. Non-ferrous items tend to last longer because they are more resistant to corrosion and rust.
Chances are that you probably encounter non-ferrous metals at least once during your day. Their malleable properties make them ideal for constructing objects like gutters, liquid pipes, roofing and outdoor signs. Non-ferrous metals are also at work in technology. Since they are not magnetic, non-ferrous metals are safe to use for a wide range of electronic or wiring tasks.
