What to Expect When You Drop Off Your Scrap Metal 

At Belson Steel Center Scrap Inc., we provide a full-service scrap yard and scrap recycling center for our industrial and residential customers throughout Illinois and the surrounding states. If you have metal products or metal-containing products that can be recycled, our team can help. To learn more about how we can serve you and what happens when you bring in your scrap metal to our location, call us today or send us a message.

You Bring in Your Scrap Metal

The very first step in the scrap metal recycling process requires a customer like you to bring in metal or metal-containing products to our location. We buy old vehicles, equipment, machinery, scrap metal, and much, much more. If you are unable to transport the metal to our location yourself, we can provide transportation services. For customers with a lot of scrap metal and recurring scrap metal needs, we can provide on-site container rental services, too.

Once the scrap metal is at our location, and we’ve determined that we can purchase it (there are some products that we won’t buy — see our website for more details), then we’ll move onto the second phase of the process: metal sorting and weighing. 

Your Scrap Metal Is Sorted and Weighed

You never have to sort, separate, or weigh your metal before bringing it into our location — we’ll always handle that for you. Once the metal is at our location, we’ll sort and separate ferrous from nonferrous materials. Then, we’ll weigh ferrous and nonferrous materials separately to determine the value of the metal that you’ve brought in. 

You Get Paid!

We pay cash when you sell metal to us! If you’re hoping to make a few extra bucks, selling metal to us is the best way to do so. We base our prices on current market values for metal and always pay fairly. 

Metal Is Melted and Molded

After you’ve been paid, you don’t need to stick around any longer. Once your metal is in our hands and has been separated and weighed, we’ll start the metal recycling process, which includes shearing, melting, and then molding metal into usable metal products. We then sell these products at our scrap yard. 

Have More Questions? Contact Us Today!

If you have more questions about selling metal products to Belson Steel Center Scrap Inc. or what happens when you drop off your metal, call us today. Remember, we can help by offering transportation and logistics services for big metal loads. Reach out by phone or online to get started.
