How do I properly dispose of scrap metal?

For most household metals, disposal is pretty easy.

(You might even get some money back from deposits on drink cans!)

For other metals and larger items, you can bring them to scrap yards in any quantity for recycling purposes. Of course, this can take up valuable time and requires a car or possibly even renting a truck if you need more space.

What is considered 'scrap metal'?

Scrap metal is pretty much any product containing metal that can be recycled. This includes all types of metal and can come from a variety of sources.

Scrap metal doesn’t always come from the things you expect, like construction debris and old cars. You can also find scrap metal in common household items such as frying pans, cooking tools, pop cans, tin cans, rebar, wires and pipes. Metal can also be found in electronic devices, but great care needs to be taken when breaking these down, since some items may contain hazardous chemicals and metals.

At 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, we’re scrap metal removal experts and know just how to handle all your unwanted rubbish. We work with local recycling facilities to ensure proper disposal of both metal and non-metal components.

What scrap metals can be recycled?

According to American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI), steel is the most recycled material on the planet.

Why should we recycle scrap metal?

It’s quite expensive to mine and produce new metals, but the environmental cost is even higher. We know that mining causes damage to the environment, but now that it’s also becoming harder to access places with rich sources of metals, the methods of mining are becoming more invasive. There’s also a huge amount of energy required to obtain these new sources of metal.

Recycling is a much more efficient way to produce metals needed for manufacturing. It uses less energy than sourcing new materials, while allowing us to preserve natural resources. It also helps to reduce garbage sent to landfills, and slows down the consumption of natural resources.

Recycling is important to us at 1800-GOT-JUNK?. When you trust us with your junk removal, you can be sure that everything is being handled in the proper way. We work with local facilities to ensure metals are properly sorted and recycled where possible.
