Preparing to Drop Off Scrap Metal 

At Belson Steel Center Scrap Inc., we are passionate about scrap metal recycling. When scrap metal is recycled, resources are conserved, the need for new metal mining (and the related environmental ills) are mitigated, local jobs are created, and energy is saved. What’s more, when you recycle your scrap metal with Belson Steel Center Scrap Inc., we’ll pay you in cash for your metal! This is a win-win situation for our local economy, the earth, and your wallet!

If you have a load of scrap metal that you’re ready to bring into Belson Steel Center Scrap Inc., please read the following about what materials/products we buy and how to prepare to drop off your scrap metal. Please call us directly with any other questions that you have about preparing to drop off scrap metal!

Preparing to Drop Off Your Scrap Metal

Here are some ways that you can prepare to drop off your scrap metal–

  • Know what we sell. At Belson Steel Center Scrap Inc., we are proud of our ability to purchase and process a variety of metal-containing products. In addition to pure scrap metal, we also buy appliances, batteries, whole computers, electric motors, some electronics, and more. Please review our list of what we buy (and what we don’t) before coming in. 
  • Understand general rules for metal recycling. If you’re recycling scrap metal and you’re unsure whether or not it’s a product that our recycling center will buy, consider that in general, a product should be at least 50 percent scrap metal. If there’s only a small amount of metal on a product and removing that metal is easy, do so. For example, consider a french press — if you take out the glass carafe, you’re just left with the metal frame. That’s what we want!
  • There’s no need to separate or weigh metal in advance. While some metal recycling facilities may ask you to separate materials into ferrous vs. non-ferrous before bringing them in, at Belson Steel Center Scrap Inc., there’s no reason to do this. We are more than happy to handle all metal separation at our facility and will weigh your metal on-site.
