To learn more about what metal you can bring into our scrap yard for recycling, reach out to us today.

These include any hazardous materials, asbestos-containing materials, radioactive materials, biohazard materials, appliances containing CFC refrigerants, solvents, non-metal substances (tires, wood, etc.), microwave ovens, dishwashers, flammable materials, and oil and fuel. If you have any questions about what we do or do not accept at our scrap yard, we urge you to please call us before bringing your materials to our scrap yard. 

How to Get Started with Belson Steel

Recycling with Belson Steel is easy. If you have metal-containing products or scrap metal, you can bring them to our scrap yard where we will handle metal weighing,  separation, and processing on your behalf. You don’t need an appointment to visit us—we accept walk-ins. We will weigh and separate your scrap metal and then pay you cash for your metal. We base our prices on fair market values and always pay top dollar.
