Scrap Metal Recycling

website-011Elgin Recycling is a one stop shop for all your scrap metal recycling needs. Our cutting edge processing and sorting procedures are designed to maximize output quality, allowing us to pay a higher price for the materials that we receive. To determine how much we can offer you for your recyclable materials, we refer to the daily commodity market spots and spreads posted by COMEX and LME. This ensures that you get the fair market value for your materials.

We can recycle all of your materials, whether they are considered ferrous or non-ferrous. Ferrous metals are those that contain iron, such as steel and stainless steel. Non-ferrous metals do not contain iron. Examples of these include:

  • Copper
  • Brass
  • Aluminum
  • Lead
  • Zinc
  • Silver
  • Molybdenum

However, there are a few materials considered unacceptable for recycling because of their dangerous properties. Click here for our list of unacceptable materials.

We at Elgin Recycling are responsible metal recyclers, and we can ensure that all the materials sold to us are processed in an environmentally-friendly manner. In fact, aside from bearing all the necessary permits, licenses, and insurances required by state and federal regulations, we are also R2 certified, at our electronics processing facility in West Dundee. This means that our recycling services ensure that metals derived from end-of-life electronics are handled according to strict guidelines.

We will make every attempt to find a home for your recycled material. By selling your metal wastes to companies in various industries, you can profit while also promoting environmental sustainability. With recycled metal as an alternative source for raw materials, companies can significantly decrease the need for mining and other eco-destructive practices that cause ground, water, and air pollution.

At Elgin Recycling, we also make sure that the scrap metal recycling process is convenient for you. You can visit one of our four full-service recycling facilities where you can simply drop off your recyclable materials and get paid right away. If you plan on recycling metal in large quantities, you can request a pick up for free; we have a fleet of flat beds, roll-offs, and trailers waiting to meet your recycling needs.

Let us know if your material is not listed on our web site so that we can give you a quote. You may contact us at 847-741-4100 to receive the most up to date pricing and market information. We look forward to working with you.
