What to Expect When You Drop Off Your Scrap Metal 

At Belson Steel Center Scrap Inc., we want you to sell your metal to us. You can bring your scrap metal and other appliances and metal-containing items directly into one of our scrap yards. There are multiple benefits to working with us, including that we’ll pay you fair market value for your metal and handle all of the processing. Here’s what you should know about what to expect when you drop off your scrap metal at one of our scrap yards or metal processing locations–

1. We’ll check the load. 

The first thing that we’ll do when you bring a load of metal and other metal-containing items is to make sure that we can accept everything you brought. If you are unsure about whether we will accept something, please refer to our website or call us directly. We accept items such as all ferrous and nonferrous scrap metal, batteries, electric motors, some electronics, cellphones, miscellaneous plugs, and more. But we do not accept hazardous items, TVs, microwaves, dishwashers, lubricants, and many other things. Double-check if you’re unsure!

2. We’ll separate your metal.

If you bring in a bunch of metal, we’ll separate the metal into ferrous and nonferrous. You do not need to do this before bringing metal into our location – we’re happy to do this at our location! We price metal differently based on type, so separation is key.

3. We’ll weigh your metal.

The next thing we’ll do is weigh the metal that you bring in. Again, you do not need to do this yourself. We price metal by weight so how much you get paid will depend on how much you bring in and the type of metal.

4. We’ll make a cash offer. 

This is the best part – after we separate and weigh your metal and know what we have and how much of it, we’ll make you a cash offer! We always offer fair prices for metal, as we want you to be incentivized to bring metal products into our location for recycling.

If you have any questions about our process and what to expect when you drop off your scrap metal, as well as any questions about what we buy and what we won’t accept at our location, please call us directly or send us a message at your convenience. We are passionate about scrap metal recycling, have been in the business since 1960, and care about making sure our customers are satisfied. Connect with us today to learn more!
