Simply put, ferrous metals and alloys contain iron; non-ferrous materials do not. It may not be easy to tell when just looking at a random piece of metal, but there are several other factors that differentiate the two. Ferrous metals include carbon steel, stainless steel, mild steel, cast iron, and wrought iron. These metals are used for strength and durability, as in skyscrapers, bridges, housing construction, industrial containers, large-scale piping, automobiles, train rails, household tools and hardware, and cooking knives. Most ferrous metals and alloys (with the exception of wrought iron) will eventually rust when exposed to the elements. Their most distinctive characteristic is that they are also magnetic.

Non-ferrous metals include aluminum, brass, copper, nickel, tin, lead, and zinc, as well as precious metals like gold and silver. They are wildly different from each other, but they do have in common that they are usually lighter in weight and more malleable than ferrous metals. Most significantly, perhaps, they are not magnetic.

Recycling is the processing of used materials which are no longer suitable for their original purpose. The end products of the recycling process are then remanufactured into new products that can be used again, reducing waste and keeping valuable materials out of the landfill. Remember the three R’s:

Reduce — Reuse — Recycle

Recycling is one of the most significant things we can do to help our environment. Using recycled products instead of virgin materials during manufacturing dramatically reduces pollution and carbon emissions, reduces energy and water consumption, and frees up much-needed space from our landfills.
Apart from the devastating impacts associated with increased carbon emissions, without recycling, there is a very real danger that important commodities will be lost forever. Metals and many other materials can be recycled and used again indefinitely, meaning we protect and preserve some of nature’s finite resources.
Encore Recyclers recycles millions of tons of steel, aluminum, copper, insulated wire, lead and e-waste a year globally. Add to that the bicycles, vending machines, mobile phones, aluminium cans and any other materials we throw out every day, and it is easy to understand the contribution Encore Recyclers is making to the sustainability of our planet.
At Encore Recyclers, we intend to “keep doing well by doing good.” We started as a small recycling company over 20 years ago, we have just completed an expansion project that has now tripled the size of our facility to better serve our community and our surrounding area. We are committed to investing in new technologies and market development. We are good at what we do and intend to keep doing it for a very long time to come!

For Encore Recyclers, sourcing, reclaiming, managing and marketing your scrap materials is just the beginning.

TESTIMONIALS

Been here about 3 times. First time truck bed full of PCs and Mainframes. Torn down into circuit boards, cd drives, and scrap metal. Made a good amount of cash. Others times smaller items. Mainly scrap metal. But was glad to get a little cash instead of just throwing away with regular trash. Going back this week.

Great place and they pay real good! The ladies inside are very nice, beautiful, and professional.
Alfonso L.
I love this place… any kind of metal, brass copper or anything else they will take and give you the best price in the Metroplex.
Tracyne A.
Easy in, ready out. Go to the covered bay for more previous metals… Stainless steel, copper, motors, etc. They weigh your vehicle for the bulk metals. Then you dump said metals. Then they weigh your vehicle again afterwards. You then take your ticket(s) to the cashier to receive cash payment. Don’t forget your ID, or you won’t get paid.
