Metal - scrap

Ferrous metals contain iron (e.g., steel); magnets stick to ferrous metal.

Nonferrous metals do not contain iron (e.g., brass, aluminum, copper). Recology customers may place small household scrap metal items (not smaller than 4 inches long and not larger than 2 feet in any dimension and weighing less than 25 pounds) in their blue recycling cart.
How to prepare the metal items for disposal: Remove textile, rubber and plastic components. No freon-containing appliances. Metal items must fit loosely in the cart.

Recyclable scrap metal (ferrous and nonferrous metals) is banned from disposal at County Refuse Disposal Sites. All County Refuse Disposal Sites, as well as a number of other locations, offer recycling for scrap metal.

*Satellite Dish: Remove plastic components first, then recycle according to the rules above.
