Clean metals are those that are free of any other metals or materials.  For example a copper pipe that has not fittings or or material on it.  

Dirty metals are those that have another material along with the metals we are looking for.  For example copper wire with a plastic casing around it would be considered dirty.  A tube of copper with brass fittings on it would also be considered dirty.
