How do scrap aluminum buyers estimate your aluminum scrap

Sources for recycled aluminum include aircraft, automobiles, bicycles, boats, computers, cookware, gutters, siding, wire, and many other products that require a strong light weight material, or a material with high thermal conductivity. As recycling does not damage the metal's structure, aluminum can be recycled indefinitely and still be used to produce any product for which new aluminum could have been used ( Reference: Encyclopedia)

Aluminum is the second most recycled metal in the world, after iron.

Forms of recyclable aluminum:

UBC -  The aluminum beverage cans - They should be empty of liquid
Automotive aluminum - The aluminum from a vehicle, as the wheel trims.
Alumifoil - The aluminum foil ( usually used in the kitchen)
Utensil scrap - The aluminum in your kitchen utensils
Industrial aluminum - Aluminum scraps from manufacturing different products

The aluminum that contains iron is called ferrous aluminum and it is usually less valuable. If the aluminum  
attracts a magnet, then you have ferrous aluminum.

Scrap aluminum buyers will pay a certain price for UBC and different prices on the other types depending on the existence or percentage of iron  in each item.

To get the most cash out of your collected aluminum, sort it and then take it to the scrap yard.
