    2. What kind of metal do you pay for?
      We pay cash for both ferrous (iron and steel) and non-ferrous metals (copper, aluminum, brass, stainless steel, bronze, etc.). No amount of metal is too big or small for us. Want to know which type of metal you have? Follow these simple steps:

      1. Locate a magnet.
      2. Put the magnet anywhere on the metal.
      3. If the magnet sticks, you have a ferrous metal.
      4. If the magnet doesn’t stick, you have a non-ferrous metal.

      Check out our Metals We Buy page for some of examples of the metal items we pay cash for.

    3. What don’t you take?
