Where Does Cast Iron Come From?

Cast iron can come from all different places and you have to make sure that you check with your scrap yard before you mix anything with the cast iron and expect the same pricing. Cast iron is most commonly found in pipe and casting forms, but there are many other applications for it as well. Grates and sewer plates are often made of cast iron, and if you have a relationship with the town or a contract to get rid of those items make sure to keep them separate.

Some Places/Items To Get Cast Iron From:

Finding Cast Iron & Scrapping It

Finding cast iron is not as hard as you may think. Cast iron is all over the place and when you are out looking for scrap there are a lot of common items to look for including:

  • Cast Iron Tubs
  • Cast Iron Sinks
  • Cast Iron Pipes (Generally older pipes and black in color)
  • Old Fireplace grates
  • Cast Iron Radiators

Cast iron will normally appear very rusty when it is outside for a while and when you drop it from a high enough area it should break into a lot of pieces. This is one of the best “cast iron” tests when you are trying to figure out exactly what you have.
