Ferrous Metals

Ferrous Metals

Ferrous metals include, but are not limited to iron and steel. Most metals that stick to a magnet are considered ferrous. You can grab a magnet even from your fridge to test the ferrous metals. Items that are Ferrous are old automobiles, machinery and appliances.



Computers are constantly being upgraded and have quickly become obsolete as the next new version comes out. Rather Recycling will recycle your computer towers, laptops, power supplies, printers, cell phones and more. We will destroy hard drives so that any information stored is permanently unrecoverable.

Convenient & Safe

Our new recycling facility is located in a safe community and we are committed to maintaining our campus in an orderly and secure fashion. Our yard is fully guarded to protect our customers and our property.


Rather Recycling can provide container/bin services for your home or business cleanouts, commercial or industrial jobs.

We purchase junk cars, trucks and vans. All vehicles must have gas tanks removed or have a large hole in it. Call for pick up services.


Our goal is to recycle all metals used in our everyday life in a manner that benefits society as a whole. Recycling is a major need in our world today. Without it we will quickly run out of natural resources. The majority of all metal products that we use each day have already or will eventually gone through the recycling process. A used Aluminum can is recycled and back on the grocery shelf in as little as 60 days.
