We accept scrap metal Monday through Friday from 8am until 4:30pm and Saturdays 8am until 12 noon.

Our company will buy your unwanted scrap industrial equipment, cars, computer parts and more at our scrap metal recycling centers. We can also purchase batteries, copper, rims on different vehicles and pieces of industrial equipment.

Are you finally ready to get rid of that junk car? If you can get it to one of our locations, we will pay you top dollar for the metal chassis, battery, engine, tire rims and more. There are also endless opportunities when it comes to aluminum or internal computer parts on modern vehicles.

Things We Don't Accept:

  • Propane Tanks
  • Culverts
  • Toxic Materials
  • Waste Storage Materials

While there may be some discussion about what happens to be toxic and what is not toxic, we are a responsible business that only wants to buy and sell safe materials. Please do not attempt to sell us anything that has come in contact with radioactive materials, may be under extreme pressures, or anything extremely flammable. A scrap metal business is something that should also be honest with their customers.

Cast Iron

Cast iron is one of the most popular items we buy and sell. If you are looking to recycle your cast iron, bronze, aluminum, steel, or any other precious metal, please consider bringing them to your local Durham or Hamlet, NC Fortress Metals drop-off location to ensure you will receive top dollar for your scrap metal.
