STEEL:  

Heavy Steel:
Heavy Melt Steel generally has 2 classifications. #1 Prepared, and Unprepared. #1 Prepared Heavy Melt Steel consists of at least 1/4″ thick steel cut into no more than 2 ft x 5ft sections. Unprepared material is just as the name suggests, large pieces of unprepared Steel and machinery. The Steel should be clean and free of any dirt, debris, or attachments. There should be no Copper , Aluminum , Brass and Bronze, or Stainless Steel attached to the Steel. Cut up pieces of Large Scrap Machinery, Scrap Excavator Buckets, Scrap Excavator tracks, Clean vehicle rims (small and large), and anything that follows the criteria but is not Prepared Plate and Structure.

Prepared Plate and Structure Steel :
Prepared Plate and Structure Steel consists mostly of Steel I beams and Plate material that is more than 1/4″ thick and is cut into no more than 4’x4′ sections. This class of Steel is usually the by-product of a demolition or a teardown of larger buildings or machinery. There should be no Copper , Aluminum , Brass and Bronze , or Stainless Steel attached to this material.

Light Iron:
This group of steel consists of mostly light, dirty, or otherwise unprepared material that has a wide range of examples. Most of these items don’t fit into the other categories. This type of steel is known as “shredder”. This is because the variety of this steel is light enough to shred but not clean enough to be classified as Bailer.

Steel I beams:
Steel I beams are thicker than 1/4″ and unprepared. As the name states, some of these pieces can be very large.

Plate and Structural Pieces:
Plate and Structural Pieces are thicker than 1/4″ and unprepared. As the name states, some of these pieces can be very large.

COPPER:  

Bare Bright Copper:
Bare Bright Copper consists of #1 bare, un-coated, un-alloyed, and un-insulated copper wire, 16 gauge or thicker. The wire must be free from tarnish or any other impurities that keeps it from being bright & shiny

Copper #1:

Copper #1 consists of clean, unalloyed, uncoated copper tubing & pipe, buss bars, clippings, punching’s and wire. Clean copper pipe should not have any copper ends or fittings attached.

Copper #2:

#2 Copper consists of miscellaneous pipe, wire, and other solids that have any solder, paint or enamel on them. The copper ends that are not allowed on clean #1 copper, are accepted here.

Light Copper:

Lite Copper consists of unalloyed copper sheet, downspouts, gutters, and clean hair wire. The items can have paint, steel screws and rivets not in excess. These are only a few examples of Lite Copper.
