What Is Scrap Iron?

Scrap Iron is a ferrous material widely used in many products. Iron is a magnetic material and is generally delivered to scrapyards in the form of architectural structures, automobiles ad broken appliances.

Iron is a widely recycled material by scrapyards and almost every type of scrapyard will take your scrap iron for recycling.


What Are The Current Scrap Iron Prices?

Scrap Iron is a widely recycled material by scrap yards and almost every scrapyard will take your iron for scrap. However because there is a huge supply of iron for scrap due to the materials made from iron, the value isn’t as great as other non-ferrous metals.

Depending on the quantity, it may not be worth the scrapyard paying you for the material, however if you have a couple hundred kg’s you will tip the scales in your favour.

Aspects such as the weight of your scrap iron, the condition of your iron, and its supply and demand will impact the price you’re quoted to recycle it.

Moreover, different grades of scrap iron will receive different scrap prices. For instance, light iron objects like vehicle shells will be quoted a different value to heavier iron items.

Luckily, Scrap Local works with reliable metal recyclers who offer the latest scrap iron prices. Submit an online enquiry to see how much your scrap iron is worth today!

  • What is the difference between ferrous and non-ferrous?

    The main difference between ferrous and non-ferrous metal is that the latter doesn’t contain iron.

    Typically speaking, ferrous metals have a high carbon content and rust easily when exposed to natural elements. Obviously, frag feed and cast iron are ferrous metals, however other metals like steel turnings can also be classed as ferrous.

    Non-ferrous metals have a higher resistance to rust and can be used in most outdoor objects because of this. Metals such as copper, aluminium and brass are classed as non-ferrous.

  • What's the difference between light iron and cast iron?

    The main difference between light and cast iron is their varying weights.

    As it’s name suggests, light iron is less heavy than cast iron and can be used in white goods like washing machines and air conditioners.

    Most metal merchants use a price per tonne formula to calculate current scrap iron prices. This means that heavier grades like cast iron are more expensive than lighter grades.

    Nevertheless, you can still receive a great price for your light iron if you scrap it with Scrap Local!
