Frequently Asked Questions
- How do I tell if my material is aluminum or lite iron? Aluminum is not magnetic, so test your material with a magnet.
- There is paint on my roofing. Does that mean I will get paid for dirty aluminum? No. Dirty refers to the content of the material, not the condition. You will get clean aluminum pricing as long as there is no metal, magnetic material, or plastic attached.
- What do I have to do to a snow machine to get paid dirty aluminum? The cowling and the tracks must be removed. We are happy to accept the snow machine with these items still attached, but you will be paid the lite iron price.
