We sort or you sort scrap metal
Most of our dealers send us their scrap metal sorted and bailed or boxed. Scrap metal is
your business and sorting is your expertise.
We also have dealers, however, that don’t focus on metal scrap. They may be in the cardboard
recycling business, trucking, or any number of industries. They will accept non-ferrous metal
scrap from their current customers but don’t want to sort it. Send it to us and we’ll sort it
out. We want to make it very easy for you to start doing business with us. If your scrap metal
business gets large enough, we can help teach you how to do your own sorting, and thus receive
a higher price per pound from us. Calbag Metals will help develop the most cost-effective
process for selling us your scrap.
Sorted or unsorted, it’s very helpful to us that when you send us a load you also send us a
packing slip of what is in the load. Give us the weights and grades you are sending. With this
packing list, we can check what you sent against what we receive. This helps identify any theft
issues, and also helps prevent any surprises. If you graded some metal one way and we graded it
another, we can get on the phone and talk about it right then if we have a packing slip from you.
