The prices you can get will depend largely on the grade of scrap aluminium that you deliver and also the price of aluminium on the International Metal Exchange at the time.
One of the main factors of grading any metal is the level of impurities. Impurities for aluminium include things as plastic coating, steel cords, lead or other attachments that are used when the product is manufactured. Obviously the less attachments, the cleaner the aluminium, the higher the value of your aluminium scrap!
As different levels of impurities can give your aluminium a different classification, it’s a good idea to drop into one of our sites with a sample to obtain an accurate quote from one of our experts.
