What’s the difference between ferrous and non-ferrous?

Maybe you already know the difference. But just in case you don’t, here’s a quick introduction.

Put simply, non-ferrous metals don’t contain iron (the French for iron is Le Fer), are non-magnetic and usually have better corrosion resistance than ferrous metals. Here’s a non-ferrous metals list for materials that we regularly buy:

  • Aluminium and aluminium alloys
  • Brass
  • Copper
  • Lead
  • Silver
  • Zinc

Stainless steel is a ferrous metal because it contains iron, but is often classified as a ‘non-ferrous metal’ by the scrap metal industry. That’s because of its non-magnetic properties and their implications for material handling while recycling metals. Regardless of whether you consider it non-ferrous, we pay top prices for stainless steel!

Copper recycling

Copper deserves a special mention as one of the first non-ferrous metals that usually comes to mind. In service, copper provides excellent thermal and electrical conductivity. It’s highly corrosion resistant too, as well as being easy to form and join. No wonder copper is used in products such as these (we also welcome uncontaminated copper process waste):

  • Copper wire (‘brightwire’)
  • Copper tubing
  • Braziery
  • Old hot water cylinders
  • Copper heating elements

Top prices for non-ferrous cable

And then there’s cable, which usually consists of a non-ferrous core. You might be amazed how much cable is discarded by organisations like yours. That’s a shame when we’re waiting to pay good money for it, based on the latest UK copper prices. If you have any of the following (or similar), we’d like to quote:

  • High and low-grade cable
  • Household electrical cable
  • SWA cable (steel wire armoured cable)
  • Data cable (Cat 5, Cat6, Ethernet cable, networking cable etc.)
  • VIR cable (vulcanised India rubber)
  • FP200 fireproof cable
  • Old aircraft and vehicle wiring looms
  • Aluminium cable
  • Lead cable
  • Copper wire

How much do you pay for non-ferrous scrap metal?

As for all metals, non-ferrous metal prices vary daily, which makes it difficult to publish an accurate price list or anything as specific as a brass or copper price chart. Instead, please call or email with details of the metal you are selling. Whether you’ve just cleared out your domestic garage or a large industrial site, we’ll make sure we give you a competitive price.

A reputation built on fair pricing

As one of Gloucestershire’s long-established, fully licensed scrap metal dealers, we’ve built a reputation on fair scrap metal pricing. Unlike some scrap metal dealers, we’ve always taken a responsible approach to metal recycling. We welcomed the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 that was passed to eliminate cash transactions and tighten control of our industry in everyone’s interest. Because of this, we can no longer pay you in cash – but we’ll pay you with a cheque or bank transfer instead.

You may be surprised how much money you can raise whether you drop your non-ferrous scrap off at our depot or we collect it from you. As well as accepting deliveries at our Bourton-on-the-Water scrap metal yard, we can arrange a one-off or regular scrap metal collection. We’ll even supply skips to help you sort your scrap.
