HELPFUL TIPS FOR YOUR BEST RESULTS
Time to Sale yuor scrap metal in Illinoi.Scrap pricing is based on volatile commodity markets, and may change from the time you call to the time you deliver your goods. Pricing may be held for larger quantities, 1000+ Lbs, on a case by case basis. Quotes must be in writing, and the material must be received prior to expiration.
Alloy / Grad
 If you call us and ask the price of aluminum, its like saying, “how much does a vehicle cost?”. The make/model/details is what makes each vehicles price different. Scrap is a similar principal. Different alloys and grades have different elements composing that specific material. Most materials are graded and priced separately, leading to a lot of different prices for what may look like the same stuff! We are here for you.
 Examples;
 Some common aluminum alloys are; 1100, 2024, 3003, 3004, 5052, 6061, 6063, 7075. There are a lot!
 Common grades of brass are; Yellow, Red, Semi Red, Rod, Auto Radiators, Shells, 70/30, etc...
Stainless steel may be 201, 304, 316, 410, etc...
Attachments / Purity
Clean doesn’t always mean polished, in our industry it typically means free of non conforming attachments. Less impurities usually means more value. Clean and process your scrap material for the highest prices possible.
Examples;
Brass faucets are not always entirely brass. They can have things like steel screws, plastic inserts, zinc castings, etc… If left as-is, they will be paid as unclean brass, which is a significantly lower price than clean brass.

Stainless steel sinks usually have steel/iron liners and drains. Remove all magnetic and non-metallic attachments for the highest grading.

 

We also except Tin Sheet Metal 
Tin is soft, lightweight, silvery metal that is easy to melt, press and shape without tearing. It is resistant to corrosion and has low toxicity.
China and Indonesia are currently the world's largest producers. 
Tin is used as solder in the electronics industry. Tin alloys can also be found in bearings, automobile parts, dental amalgams, and aerospace metal. Even nuclear reactors can contain a small amount of tin.
Tin is used in the tinplate to make cans for food, drinks, cosmetics, fuel, oil, and paint. 90% of all tinplate is used to make cans for food and drinks, cosmetics, fuel, oil, and paints. 
Sheet Metal is used for:
Car bodies and other vehicles
Railroad cars
As cladding on wings and fuselages of aircraft 
Roofing, flashing and rain gutters
Furnaces and ductwork
And refrigerators, dumpsters, electrical enclosures, toolboxes, hoppers, bins, and medical tables.
Tin/Sheet metal is ferrous.

 

We recycle all kinds of metal

Recycling alloys such as Nickel, Carbide, Inconel, Indium, Rhodium, Titanium, Hastelloy, Molybdenum, Cupronickel.  Alloys, or superalloys / hi temp alloys, Are metals intended to sustain their strength well above room temperatures and function between 500°F and 2200°F. High temp alloys offer surface stability, environmental endurance, and resistance to oxidation. They use hi temp alloys for example, manufacturing boiler drums, tubing for water boilers, pumps and pressure vessels, collectors, aircraft engines, and high-temperature turbines. precious metal refining of multiple types and forms filter, sludges, honeycombs, solutions, anodes, targets, turbine blades and x-ray film that contain Precious metals or precious compounds. Bring it in and we will pay top dollar for it. We also do a pick up as well. Materials contain platinum, palladium, rhodium, rhenium, iridium, ruthenium, gold, and/or silver. Recycling alloys such as Nickel, Carbide, Inconel, Indium, Rhodium, Titanium, Hastelloy, Molybdenum,Cupronickel.
