Types of Scrap Metal in San Antonio, Texas

Scrap Metal in San Antonio

Ferrous Metals

A ferrous metal is any metal that contains iron. Some examples of this type of metal would be steel, cast iron and wrought iron. Besides the iron content, each of these metals is known for its durability. Ferrous metals are used for building large structures that have to be weight-bearing.
If you have any leftover ferrous metals from a large project, it can be hard to know what to do with it. All ferrous metals are recyclable. Call Ashley Salvage in San Antonio, Texas, today, and we can buy your scraps.

Nonferrous Metals

Nonferrous metals do not have iron in them. The oxidization of iron creates rust, so nonferrous metals are ideal for things that require exposure to water and elements of nature. Rain gutters, metal pipes, electrical wiring and some roofing parts are all ways that these types of metals are used. Because they have great strength but are still lightweight, nonferrous metals are the way to go.
If you or your company has leftover metal from a project, contact Ashley Salvage. We will give you a price for your lot and take it off your hands. Reach out to us today.
