Why Recycle with a Kalamazoo Metal Supplier?

In today’s world, it’s more important than ever that we’re conscious of where our metals comes from and how we get it. That’s why recycling with a metal supplier like Rescued Metals is more than just an option for Kalamazoo residents– it’s a commitment to a greener future. Whether you’re up-cycling your metal for financial reasons, environmental reasons, or a little bit of both, we all play a part in the life cycle of the metals we use every day. That’s why we’re taking this month’s blog post to discuss the benefits of recycling your scrap metal with our team at Rescued Metals.

Maximize the Money You Make on Scrap Metal

Selling scrap metal can be a lucrative endeavor, and Rescued Metals provides a seamless process for turning your scrap into cash. That being said, we recommend some things you can do at home to maximize the value of your scrap metal.

Clean Your Scrap Before Arrival

In order to process the rescued metals, we’ll first need to clean them. However, this process can take time that shops like ours would otherwise be spending working on another project. For that reason, most up-cycling facilities like Rescued Metals offer a higher price for scrap that has already been cleaned. While you’re at it, make sure to remove any rubber, plastic, or other non-metal parts of your scrap that we don’t have much use for in order to maximize your returns.

Know Which Scrap We Buy—and When to Sell

Though it sounds simple, you’d be surprised by the difference that knowing which metals a shop will take can make. While some shops will take just about anything, others might only be in the market for certain metals, and could offer you a reduced price for your scrap.

Moreover, knowing which scrap a company will buy will let you know which metal prices to follow. Like any good, the price of scrap metal fluctuates over time, and staying current on the prices of scrap can tell you the most profitable way to spend your time.
