By value, nonferrous scrap accounts for more than half of the U.S. scrap recycling industry's total performance. Recovered base metals include aluminum, copper, lead, zinc, tin, brass and others.
Lightweight and silver-colored, aluminum has many types, including aluminum sheet, cast aluminum, aluminum wire and aluminum rims.
Copper is very valuable in scrap recycling. Grades include #1 copper, #2 copper, bare bright copper, #1 insulated wire and #2 insulated wire.
Lead is a malleable metal that can withstand corrosion from moisture. Examples include weights, pipes, gutters and pellets.
Zinc is widely used in galvanization, which is the process of applying a protective zinc coating to iron or steel to prevent rust.
Tin is often used to coat steel to prevent corrosion and tinplate steel is widely used to make tin cans for food packaging.
Brass is a very heavy metal composed of copper and zinc and often used in plumbing fixtures and at the end of copper piping.
