Iron and steel, or ferrous scrap, comes from many consumer products. Items like automobiles and household appliances to industrial structures and equipment such as buildings, railroads, trains, bridges, ships, and equipment. Ferrous scrap is the most recycled material in the world.
Here at Koscove Metal we pay top dollar for all nonferrous metal. The value of the metal depends on its classification and is based on fair market value for that item. Classification is performed by Koscove Metal staff based on ISRI (Institute of scrap Recycling) Specifications. All classifications can be explained in full at the time of purchase. A sample of your material may be brought in at any time for pricing. Questions are always welcome!
Due to the volatile ferrous market we are unable to buy ferrous material at our location. This does not apply to our roll-off customers.
This includes any Steel, Iron, and Tin.
The earliest steel product is 4,000 years old. Steel has survived and thrived for many centuries. Today Steel is one of the world’s most versatile alloys and is the worlds most important engineering and construction material. It is used in every aspect of our lives, from cars to construction products to refrigerators and surgical scalpels.
The United States on average produces enough ferrous scrap to build 25 Eiffel Towers every day! Iron is one of the most abundant of all metals. It is the prime element in creating steel. If we used scrap ferrous metals rather than virgin materials, we could reduce emissions by 58% yearly.
The availability of secondary and recycled tin is crucial for the future. Due to tin’s versatility and unique properties, it is used in numerous new technologies. Tin is therefore key to both the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the Green Revolution. Recycled tin is already contributing to a greener and more connected planet by fulfilling some of this new demand.
