Scrap Metal is everywhere in our lives, including our homes. From outdated and discarded appliances in the kitchen to updated door hardware throughout your home. These items ad up especially if your moving, renovating or doing a little spring cleaning. Let’s go through room by room to see where your metal recyclable are and put a little cash back your wallet at the same time.

Look around your home and you will find metal recyclables. We take just about anything with visible metal on it. If the item is a combination item like perhaps a camping chair covered with canvas it is considered “dirty” in our industry and requires labor on our end. So the “cleaner” your items are the more your items will be worth.
A few items we don’t take are upholstered furniture including mattresses, regardless of the metal springs. We also can not accept pennies (any coins actually), take those pennies to the bank and cash them in there.
If you have questions, call the office and speak to Susan or Sammie and they will happily answer your questions.
