Sterling Silver Metal Scrap Recycling

Thunderbird Supply Company accepts sorted sterling silver (including filings). Metal should be separated by type of metal, filings, soldered scrap and unsoldered scrap. Sorry, we no longer accept gold, gold-filled, or base metal scrap. Scrap metal is processed 1-2 days from receipt. All metals are weighed in troy ounces. 

On the day the scrap is processed, you will receive the % of the daily silver spot price, listed below for trade only

  • 90% fine silver coins and bars.
  • 80% unsoldered scrap.
  • 60% soldered pieces and jewelry. 

Your trade credit will be applied to your Thunderbird account for future purchases. Please let your sales person know that you would like to use your credit on the account when placing your order so that it can be applied to your order. 

Bring in your scrap to one of our 3 store locations or mail your scrap metal to the Gallup location listed below.

Please double bag all scrap to prevent silver loss and include:

  • Customer number (if you have one)
  • Name
  • Address
