A heavy metal is a member of an ill-defined subset of elements that exhibit metallic properties, which would mainly include the transition metals, some metalloids, lanthanides, and actinides. Many different definitions have been proposed—some based on density, some on atomic number or atomic weight, and some on chemical properties or toxicity.

There is an alternative term toxic metal, as well. Heavy metal can include elements lighter than carbon and can exclude some of the heaviest metals. One source defines "heavy metal" as common transition metals, such as copper, Lead, and zinc.
These metals are a cause of environmental pollution (heavy-metal pollution) from a number of sources, including lead in petrol, industrial effluents, and leaching of metal ions from the soil into lakes and rivers by acid rain.
Heavy metal pollution can arise from many sources but most commonly arises from the purification of metals, e.g., the smelting of ores and the preparation of nuclear fuels.

Removal of Heavy Scrap Metal

Find the nearest scrap yard in your city or town and call them to see what it entails to bring in scrap metal for droff. If there is too much scrap metal to simply load into your car or truck, rent a moving van or truck and pile the scrap metal into it to haul to the scrap yard. Sometimes you can actually sell this spare scrap metal to a scrap yard. It most likely won't be much money but something is better then nothing.

By heavy scrap metal recycling, the economic benefits extend beyond the initial saving on future purchasing. It also adds substantial resale value, which in turn can be passed on by trading your scrap, and provides an unlikely asset to bolster the balance sheet.

Scrap recycling is an environmentally friendly way of obtaining the scrap you require, which can be tremendously beneficial in terms of promoting a positive image to your clients. It is easy to see, given these major benefits, why recycling scrap metal is becoming more fashionable, and indeed more profitable.

Whatever your involvement in the scrap trade, it is clear that the benefits of recycling scrap would be applicable, and of course, would impact on the ultimate success of your operation. Having said that, there are some problematic factors to embrace, such as the substantial capital outlay for recycling, or the fact that you would indeed first require to produce some scrap in order to subsequently recycle which could prove problematic. However, by putting your scrap to further use within your organisation, or by selling it on the commodities market, you are sure to find some benefit, be it economic or real, in recycling scrap metal. With continuing growth on the eastern front, it is clear that the market for scrap metal is continuing to increase in strength and scope.

Non Ferrous Scrap
Consumers of this recycled material include fabricators, manufacturers, refineries and foundries. Aside from collecting it from discarded electronics, the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries shares that it also comes from used soft drink cans, old radiators and powerless lead batteries. All precious and nonprecious metals other than steel and iron fall into this category.
