What the Profitable Scrap Metals Are

In this blog post from Fort Lauderdale Scrap Metal, we will look at which metals are the most valuable metal scrap.

Aluminum is one of the most valuable types of scrap because so many industries use it for a dizzying variety of products. The demand for this metal is consistently strong and lucrative.

Copper is another metal that is widely used in products such as wire and pipes, making it valuable. The prices for scrap metal for copper and aluminum are consistently healthy at metal recycling yards.

Although not as common as some of the other metals discussed here, brass is purchased by recyclers and is an excellent product to sell if you are scrapping metal.

Pure lead is valuable, although it is hard to find. If you can locate some, take it to your recycler or schedule a scrap metal pick up if it is a significant amount.

Stainless steel is widely used, so you won’t get paid as much for it as some of the other items mentioned here, but it is purchased readily because of its popularity for so many products.

Of course, if you have a rare metal, such as you can find in platinum jewelry, it is definitely something you should take to a scrap dealer.
