The heavy melting scrap of used steel and wrought iron fall into two main categories of HMS1 and HMS2 for sorting, recycling, selling and processing purposes. Scrap of this nature comes from dismantled or demolished structures or items and should never be disposed of in landfills since it can be reprocessed into new, usable products. Today, recyclers will buy this scrap to help keep it from just being thrown away where it can no longer be of use to anyone.
HMS1 and HMS2 Both Have Subcategories
The primary difference between HMS1 and HMS2 is the fact that the first one does not contain galvanised or blackened steel, whereas, the second one does include both of them. According to the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries or the ISRI the subcategories of HMS1 and HMS2 are as follows:
