Ferrous & Nonferrous Scrap


Ferrous & Nonferrous Scrap

OmniSource (a wholly-owned SDI subsidiary) is one of the nation’s largest scrap steel processors. Operating primarily in the Midwest and Southeastern U.S., OmniSource shreds, compacts, bundles, bales, and shears steel scrap.

Ferrous Scrap

OmniSource buys scrap steel in a variety of forms: end-of-life automobiles, appliances and other consumer products; steel resulting from the demolition of buildings and other structures; and industrial scrap steel that is a by-product of the manufacture of new steel products, such as excess steel from automotive stamping plants.

OmniSource sells an array of high-quality ferrous-scrap products for foundry and steel-mill melting applications. In addition to processed obsolete grades including shredded, plate and structural, and heavy melt, OmniSource offers prime industrial scrap in the form of busheling and factory bundles.

Nonferrous Scrap

OmniSource buys nonferrous metal scrap that is the by-product of manufacturing or fabricating new products. We also purchase recyclable aluminum (including soda cans), copper wire, and other metals at more than 70 company-operated metals recycling collection and processing yards. Recycled wire and cable is a major source of copper. Beverage cans provide a high volume of recycled aluminum.

OmniSource sells a wide range of processed non-ferrous scrap such as granulated copper, secondary aluminum ingots, and stainless steel bundles. In addition, our multiple auto shredding facilities yield various grades of nonferrous scrap from their sorting and recovery systems. Sophisticated identification, segregation, and manufacturing processes ensure product quality and consistency.
