How We Grade Aluminum Rims

We are changing the way we buy Aluminum Rims. We have been changing the grading of aluminum rims at our door and we want to make sure you are informed.
- Dirty Aluminum Rims - The rubber valves and lead wheel weights are still attached.
- Clean Aluminum Rims - The rubber valve and lead wheel weight are removed.
- Chrome Aluminum Rims - The chrome on the outside of the aluminum is coated and causes it to be a lower price.

Price Difference Electric Motors vs. Sealed Units

At Rockaway Recycling we want to make sure that you know what you are getting paid for. We make sure to separate your electric motors and sealed units due to the price difference at the scale. Usually sealed units will range from $0.05-0.10 less than electric motor scrap price because of the amount of steel on the outside.
