What types of metals do you purchase?
NOTICE: As of August 1st 2018, Raven Recycling accepts FERROUS METALS for recycling.
This includes: steel, depolluted vehicle scrap, cast iron, wrought iron, HMS, bushelings, and others.
Ferrous metals will be accepted for a tipping fee of $85.00/tonne.
For more information contact Raven Recycling's Operations Manager Ralph Charlton at 667-7269 ext 22 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Raven Recycling still 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.
Metal Recycling is open from 9:00 am until 4:00 pm from Monday to Friday, with the exception of major holidays.
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.
