We are pretty sure if you will do your spring cleaning, you will find all kinds of metal in your home. Please dont throw it out , call Emperor Scrap Metal Brokers and you wont be disappointed. 
 Cast iron, an alloy of iron containing 2 to 4 percent carbon. It’s made by reducing iron ore in a blast furnace. The liquid iron is cast, or poured and hardened, into crude ingots called pigs, and the pigs are subsequently re-melted along with scrap and alloying elements in cupola furnaces and recast into molds for producing a variety of products.

The Chinese produced cast iron as early as the 6th century BC. The first ironworks in America were established on the James River, Virginia, in 1619. Its load-bearing strength made it perfect for the foundation of America’s earliest skyscrapers.
Most cast iron is called gray iron or white iron. Gray iron contains more silicon and is less hard and more machinable than is white iron. 

Cast iron is used for:
Making pipes
Making machines
Automotive parts
Pots pans and utensils
And ship anchors.
Cast iron is ferrous.

     The benefits of recycling are numerous.
Recycling and reusing materials saves energy, conserves natural resources, prevents pollution and reduces the volume of discards that are thrown into our landfills.

            We also recycle cooper. Brint it your cooper and we will pay top dollar for it.
Called “poor man’s gold”, copper ranks as one of the most lucrative metals recycled. As a superior conductor of electricity and heat, copper wire is used to wire homes and commercial buildings and for plumbing pipes too. It is a soft, malleable, and ductile metal with high thermal and electrical conductivity. 
Copper was the first metal to be smelted from sulfide ores in 5000 BC and 1,000 years later in 4000 BC it was the first metal to be cast into a shape in a mold. In the Roman era, copper was mined on Cyprus, the origin of its name in Old English called “coper.” The word “copper” was first used about 1530.
Copper used in roofing (it oxidizes to a patina called verdigris) as well as:
Electrical wiring
Motors
Gutters and downspouts
Plumbing
Cookware 
And cooking utensils.
Copper recycling requires much less energy to recycle it than to fabricate it brand new. This provides savings in more than just time and money.
Copper is non-ferrous. We accept:
Insulated and non-insulated wire
CATV
Radiators
Tubing.
