What We Recycle

Millens Recycling has a long list of materials that are accepted for scrap recycling.  Scrap metal is, simply, any item that is made up of more than half metal product.  We typically separate metal recycling products into two disctinct categories; ferrous and non ferrous metals. 

A very easy way to distingish these metals from one another is by utilizng a simple tool that you will see used throughout our facility; a magnet.  Ferrous metals have a magnetic property, while non ferrous do not.  It is a this simple distinction that makes it quite easy to separate our two categories of scrap.

Within these categories, there is a vast list of items we accept.  Below you will find just some of that list.
