What metals we accept

Ferrous and non-ferrous metals:
Here's the lowdown

AMR accepts, literally, hundreds of types of ferrous and non-ferrous metal for recycling. Still, we've found 95% of the metals our customers bring to us are:

  • Copper
  • Brass
  • Aluminum
  • Scrap steel
  • Stainless steel

Non-ferrous metals tend to bring a higher price. (Wondering how to tell the difference? Magnets are attracted only to ferrous metals.)

Safe to say, no matter what metals you're looking to get rid of, AMR will find a home for them.
