What is Recyclable?Just about anything made out of metal can be recycled, and that includes electronics. The most common metals recycled are:
MagnetsSeparating your scrap metals is important, and can make more money for you. Use a strong magnet to sort your metals into ferrous and non-ferrous piles. If the magnet sticks to an item easily, then it is ferrous. These metals, usually steel or iron, are very common metals and are not worth as much, though they are recyclable and do add up.
Non-ferrous metals, such as copper, aluminum, bronze, and stainless steel are worth more money, and they typically do not stick to a magnet. The scrap yard would prefer if the metals you recycle are sorted, and knowing the value of what you have will make scrap metal recycling more lucrative.
Making extra cash from metal items you would normally throw away is great for your wallet, and for the environment.
