Product Classification and Preparation Guidelines:


Aluminum
Aluminum Cans (can be crushed or not, washed out, we prefer them in clear bags)
Aluminum Rims & Chrome Aluminum Rims (can have valve stems and wheel weights attached)
Aluminum Signs (can have tape and paint)
Aluminum Turnings (produced from lathe and milling machines)
Aluminum Wire (no insulation and no steel wire in center)
Aluminum Siding (clean, no screws, plastic, caulk, etc. - new or old)
Clip Aluminum (new production, non painted, thick or thin sheets that have been machine bent or folded, bar stock, plate, etc.)
Painted Clip (same as clip with paint)
Cast Aluminum (produced by casting when made, most fittings are cast, auto cast alum, etc - no more than 2% steel)
Extrusion Aluminum (6061 or 6063, irrigation pipe, door frames, window frames - no caulk, glass, screws, rubber)
Irony Aluminum (50% iron & 50% alum, lawn mower motors, possible lawn chairs, motor parts, etc)
Aluminum (thin sheets)
Sheet Aluminum Radiators (radiators, no plastic, steel or rubber)
Sheet Aluminum (2% maximum screws, plastic, caulk or rubber - no glass)
Slightly Irony Aluminum (10% maximum iron)

Batteries
Car/Truck (sealed lead acid only)
Golf Cart (sealed lead acid only)
UPS/Computer (sealed lead acid only)

Brass
Brass Turnings (from new brass produced by lathe or milling machines - no steel contamination)
Irony Brass (white, contains some iron)
Red Brass (contains more copper than yellow brass - if filed has pink color inside)
Yellow Brass (most plumbing fittings, door hardware, kick plates, etc., - if filed has a yellow color inside)

Copper
#1 Big Insulated (Large insulated copper wire - yields 85% or greater)
#1 Copper (Tubing with no solder or fittings, Some insulated wire that is stripped but not shiny, bright sheet copper, non-insulated stripped house wire that is tarnished from weather exposure)
#1 Insulated (wire with copper #12 gauge up to #1 big but still insulated, solid spaghetti wire used commercially, Romex & most house wiring � yields 65% copper)
#2 Big Insulated (wire same size as #1 Big Insulated but plated and insulated - yields 80% or more)
#2 Copper (tubing with solder/paint/oil or fittings, fine brittle copper wire)
#2 Insulated (#14 gauge and smaller - most phone and communication wire - yields 55%)
#2 Insulated Copper with Steel Shield (same as #2 Insulated with steel shield)
#2 Insulated Copper with Steel Wires (same as #2 Insulated with steel wires in inner core or exterior shell.
#2 Insulated low yield (has several very small individual insulated wires and larger coating - yields 35% to 50%)
2&1 Copper (two strands of copper and one strand steel weaved together - no insulation)
ABX (Alum Shield Cable, solid #1 insulated copper inside flexible alum conduit)
Bare Bright (Any shiny copper wire/stripped/not burned (burning is illegal, changes grade, is very bad for environment and can result in heavy fines from the EPA)
Chiller Copper(copper tubing - threaded on outside, steel ribs with no heavy steel ends)
Copper Turnings (produced by lathe and milling when cutting copper parts or bars with no steel contaminants)
Heliax/Hollow (insulated outside coating, copper shell, foam shell, copper shell, hollow center)
Heliax/Solid (insulated outside coating, copper shell, foam shell, copper shell, foam center)
Lead Insulated Copper (copper wire insulated with lead cover, not plastic)
Sheet Copper (thin sheets of copper with paint, solder or discolored)

Ferrous
#1 Busheling (clean new steel left over from production processes, can be galvanized or painted)
Appliance Tin (whole appliances, any auto parts with foam, insulation, plastic, shreddable)
Appliance/Unprepared (equal mix of appliance tin &anp; unprepared steel)
Appliance/Unprepared3 (1/3 appliance tin and 2/3 unprepared steel)
Car motors (no fluids)
Cast Iron (cast iron lawn furniture, auto cast iron parts, clean motor blocks with no pistons or crankshafts, bathtubs, sinks, radiators, pipe, etc.)
Sealed units (compressors, no oil, no Freon)
Electric Motors (free of attachments)
GBX (Galvanized Steel flexible conduit with #1insulated copper wire)
Plate & Structural (up to 5' long by 18" wide, angle iron, I-Beams, H-Beams, channel, steel plates)
Prepared steel (less than 3 foot long, 18" wide, can be any thickness)
Prepared/Cast Iron (equal mix of cast iron & prepared steel)
Torchable Steel (over 3/8" thick and requires lot of torch labor - can't be sheared)
Whole Transmissions (no fluids, alum motor blocks)
Unprepared Steel (more than 3 ft long or 18" wide.)
Unprepared Steel/Cast Iron (equal parts unprepared steel & cast iron)
Unprepared Steel/Prepared Steel (equal parts unprepared steel & prepared steel)

Clean Lead (sheet lead or any lead with no steel, plastic or paper)
Diecast (clean zinc / diecast parts, free of any steel, plastic or paper)
Heater Coils (brass, copper and solder, no plastic or steel)
Heliax with Brass Ends (same as Heliax / Hollow or Heliax / Solid with brass fittings on end)
Insulated CATV (same as CATV with black outside insulation)
Irony Diecast (same as diecast but with steel contamination)
Irony CATV (same as CATV but with steel reinforcement wire on outside)
Irony Lead (wheel weights or lead with steel contamination)
Low Yield Triplex (heavy insulated, underground, alum and copper mix cable, also called URD or Concentric)
Refinery (mostly steel mixed with other non-ferrous metals, such as copper, brass, etc.)
