Recycling scrap metal protects the environment and can put cash in your pocket.

If you want to make some extra cash, your home is an excellent place to start. Copper, steel, brass, aluminum, and iron can all be found in various items around your house.

Instead of throwing them away, consider recycling them for quick cash. In this blog post, we will explore five common places where you can find scrap metal in your home and turn it into money.

1) The Kitchen

Your kitchen is filled with potential Scrap metal. Look in your cupboards for unused items like iron skillets, aluminum cookie sheets, and copper or stainless-steel pans. Appliances such as refrigerators and microwaves can be sold as scrap. Don’t forget aluminum cans and beverage containers!

2) Living Room and Bedroom

Old and broken televisions often contain copper and can be scrapped as part of our electronics recycling services. While we don’t pay for these items, just think of the room you’ll save! Steel or aluminum entry doors, lamp bases, and HVAC units are also excellent sources of scrap metal. Window sidings, frames, and gutters made of aluminum can earn you money too.

3) Bathroom and Laundry

Electronic devices, washers, and dryers can be valuable sources of scrap metal. Fixtures with copper wiring and pipes in your bathroom can be recycled, and metal shelving in your bathroom or laundry area may be worth something. Please keep in mind that we only pay for non-ferrous metals, and do not pay for appliances.

4) Garden and Patio

That unused patio furniture may be made of wrought iron, which can be sold as scrap. Old lawn tools, metal swings or swing sets, and iron railings are all valuable items that can be recycled at a scrap metal recycling center.

And, even if they are not worth cash, you are supporting a healthy planet. Remember to upcycle and donate lightly used items to help reduce waste and contribute to a circular economy.

By scrapping for cash, you make money and contribute to the recycling effort, reducing waste and promoting sustainability. So, start exploring your home today and uncover the hidden value of your scrap metal!
