Materials Processed

In some circles, it's called "hidden money." Others simply see neglecting to refine precious metal scrap as "throwing money away."

No matter what it's called, there is value in your scrap! It's worth your time and effort. So, what scrap is worth your time?

If you make products and your usable components contain gold, silver or platinum group metals, your production rejects will contain the same metals in the same proportions. Turning to Handy & Harman Refining to reclaim this scrap could put money in your bank account.

These are the main products that we refine:

  • Brazing Alloys
  • Coins
  • Jewelry
  • Industrial Scrap Containing Precious Metal 'Ag' or 'Au'
  • Sweeps

We urge you to collect and save lathe turnings, milling and drill press clips, blanking scrap from stamping machines, edge trim from slitting machines, and slag from casting crucibles. Collect dust from grinding wheels and buffing operations, as well as the wheels and buffing pads themselves. Don't over-look rags, workers' clothing and shoes, which all could be saturated with reclaimable precious metal particles.

Industries We Work With

The list of industries that can generate precious scrap metal continues to grow. Here are a few of the industries that Handy & Harman Refining serves.

  • Coin Dealers: Pre-1965 U.S. and Canadian coins and other silver/copper (coin silver) that become available through debasing of old currency can generate income.
  • Dental Industry
  • Industrial Brazers: Your excess inventory, skeleton scrap from die-punching, and edge scrap from slitting operations are of interest.
  • Manufacturing Jewelers: Manufacturing scrap is high in value. Metallic gold and silver alloys, bench grindings, and polishing dust can garner additional income.
  • Mirror Platers: We accept silver sludge from settling tanks and spent sputtering targets.
We choose Handy & Harman Refining for our precious metal processing because of their reputation in the industry. Handy & Harman Refining has a long history in the business, and we feel that their longevity and market presence demonstrates their professional stake in the industry.
