FAQ

What is a Scrap Yard?

Scrap Metal Recycling facilities or “Scrap Yards” are facilities where you can take any unwanted metal or non metal material where it can be properly disposed of. In different parts of the country, a “Scrap Yard” could also be referred to as a “Junkyard”. Scrap Metals should not be put in our landfills, but rather a place where it can be processed for later melting into new products like washers, dryers, refrigerators or new steel which can be used to make automobiles or buildings.

Most scrap metal yards will pay you either by cash or by check for your unwanted scrap metal. Since most scrap is heavy or somewhat bulky to move, it is often difficult to get your scrap metal to a scrap metal recycling facilty. Many people just don’t have the resources to get large scrap metal to a scrap yard, so they will try and dispose of it through the trash. There are a growing amount of people referred to as “Scrap Movers” or “Scrappers” that will offer to remove your Scrap Metal (some for a fee, some for free – really depends on the company and how much you have).

Can I Recycle ?

When most people hear the work “recycle” they think of paper goods, plastics and aluminum cans.

However, there is another industry in the recycling world called Scrap Metal Recycling, which process more than 125 Million Tons of scrap metal each year!

Scrap Metal Recycling is the most popular form of recycling in the United States. Steel and aluminum can be infinitely recycled. Large items such as cars, dishwashers, washing machines, stoves, and refrigerators are generally created from metal and are the best items to recycle. When you recycle Scrap Metal, you re-use the material and save on natural resources and reduce greenhouse gases.

In addition to providing benefits for the environment, however, Scrap Metal Recycling is also a far more cost effective solution to creating metals than actually producing new metals. As a result, recycling metals is one of the biggest industries in the world today.
