How to best prepare your steel for drop off:

Steel is a tonnage commodity.

The more you have, the greater the chances we are able to pay the best possible price per ton.

We can accept anything metal from 1 kg to 1000 tonnes.

We have public drop off bins for small quantities and excavators, forklifts and electro magnets for larger quantities.

We are an industrial workplace. We can provide, Hi Vis clothing and PPE after a safety induction. We ask you bring covered footwear, photo ID and or ABN.

Anything metal is completly acceptable:

What is not acceptable:

  • NO rubber, wood, plastic, non metallic refuse of any kind.
  • NO pressure vessels (LPG tanks)
  • NO fluids (Oil, Fuel, Hydraulic)
  • NO poisons corrosives, CFC's or asbestos.
  • NO fridges/whitegoods 
  • NO air conditioners unless they have been professionally de-gased

 

How to prepare your Non Ferrous for drop off:

The list of metals in this category is extensive and can have many grades within certain products. We usually pay these metals by the Kilogram.

The best advise we can give is to prepare as best you can. Value add where you can.

The more work you can do or the less work we need to do to prepare and process means we can pay more.

(Was once told many years ago. "He who doe's the work gets the $$")

  • Have different products seperated. (copper from aluminium) Although never an issue. It does make it difficult to pay top dollar when for eg: (ute full of 16 different products all mixed together)
  • Take out any steel products (Steel screws from Aluminium) (Steel componets from brass fittings)
  • Seperate the different grades (Bright, Bare, Burnt copper)  (Clean sheet from extrustion) 
  • Value add. (Seperate brass ends from copper) (remove electrical tape from copper)
  • You will need covered footwear, photo ID and or ABN.
  • We can still purchase items without an ABN (Government regulations apply)
