      What Is Scrap Metal?

      Scrap metal includes various discarded metal materials, such as steel, aluminum, copper, and more. These items may come from various sources, including construction projects, automotive parts, and household appliances. Due to their material composition, scrap metal has intrinsic value and can be recycled for its metal content. Recycling scrap metal is an environmentally friendly practice and can fetch a reasonable price.

      Who Can Sell Scrap Metal?

      Anyone with scrap metal can sell it. This includes individuals, businesses involved in metal materials, and those with metal items to recycle. Selling scrap metal is a way to dispose of unwanted items and earn money from the valuable metals they contain.

      How to Sell Scrap Metal?

      Selling scrap metal can be a straightforward process.

Scrappie can help you find reputable buyers and streamline the selling process.

      Where Can I Sell Scrap Metal?

      You can sell scrap metal at various locations, including local scrap yards, recycling centers, online platforms like Scrappie, and some metalworking or recycling businesses.

      When Should I Sell Scrap Metal?

      The ideal time to sell scrap metal is when you no longer need the items or when they are no longer functional. Selling promptly when metal prices are favorable can also help declutter your space and put money back in your pocket.

      Why Should I Recycle Metal?

      Can I Deliver To a Scrappie?

Your best bet would be to deliver your goods to a licensed site. You’ll most often be paid a higher rate too. Some yards might ask you to wear a hi-visibility vest and hard hat to enter the site.

      Weighing In Your Scrap Metal

      Your scrap metal will often be weighed in front of you so you can see the weight for yourself, and you’ll get paid. If you have any questions, don’t be afraid to ask your scrap merchant. They are there to help.
