Non ferrous metals do not contain iron. They are not magnetic and are usually more resistant to corrosion than ferrous metals. While the volume of nonferrous scrap is less than ferrous scrap, it is more valuable by the pound. Here are some examples of nonferrous scrap: aluminium, copper, lead, zinc, nickel, titanium, cobalt, chromium, and precious metals. Millions of tons of non ferrous scrap metal are recovered by processors and consumed by secondary smelter, refiners, ingot makers, fabricators, foundries, and other industries in this country.

Ferrous metals mostly contain iron. They have small amounts of other metals or elements added to give the required properties. Ferrous metals are magnetic and give little resistance to corrosion. Ferrous scrap is scrap iron and steel. This includes scrap from old vehicles, farm equipment, household appliances, steel beams, railroad tracks, food packaging and other containers. Ferrous scrap accounts for the largest volume of metal scrapped.
