What types of metals do you purchase?
Raven Recycling purchases non-ferrous metals for processing. Think ABCs: Aluminum, Brass, Copper, Stainless Steel.
We also purchase lead-acid batteries, catalytic converters, Christmas lights and more! Click here for current metals prices.
The easiest way to figure out if your metals are non-ferrous is by attempting to place a magnet on the metal. If it doesn’t stick, the metal is most likely non-ferrous and we can take it. If the magnet does stick, the metal has iron in it and we can’t take it. *with a few exceptions
Metal Recycling is open from 9:00 am until 4:00 pm from Monday to Friday, with the exception of major holidays. Note that metal recycling is closed for lunch every day between 12:00 and 1:00.
For each type of metal there are different qualities of product. For instance, you will receive more money for thick, and clean copper wire than you will for thin, burned copper wire. You will also receive a much better price if metals are cleaned. For example, when you’re selling copper and there’s a different metal attached to it, if you separate this and sort all the metals you will receive a much better price per pound.
Metal prices also change often throughout the year depending on market prices, and are charged at the discretion of the attendant.
If you’re new to the program, please stop in at our recycling depot first with a piece of photo ID. Our Depot staff will then set you up with an account so we can purchase metals from you. This not only helps to track metal inventory better in case there are mistakes, but also opens the possibility of a rewards program sometime in the future.
