Products & Services


Schnitzer's Metals Recycling Business sells the following:

  • Ferrous & Nonferrous Scrap Metal. Our recycling facilities purchase raw scrap metal from a variety of sources and process it by sorting, shearing, shredding, torching and bailing. While processing this metal, we separate ferrous metals (i.e., steel and iron) from nonferrous metals (i.e., aluminum, copper, stainless steel, lead and zinc) and sell this processed ferrous scrap and nonferrous scrap to steel mills and foundries around the world.
  • Surplus Equipment. Many of our facilities sell a wide range of surplus equipment such as forklifts, loaders, trucks, trailers, shredder parts and much more.
