Posted on 14 July 2022

It's common to have several pieces of scrap metal recycling but no idea what to do with them. With the money spent on the material, you deserve to earn some cash back while helping the environment. Not to mention, failing to recycle your metals is comparable to throwing money away. The experts at Tal Metal have compiled a list to simplify your experience of what you should do when planning on dropping off or getting your scrap picked up at a metal scrap yard. Before going to a scrap yard, there are a few things to consider to maximize your experience and increase the amount of money you get.

Continue below to learn how you can simplify recycling your scrap metal.

Prepare/Separate Your Materials 

The first step when recycling your unused metals is to check if it is accepted by the scrap metal yard company you are going to. Next, prepare and separate your materials for an easy exchange. Sorting your metals from ferrous (iron, steel) to nonferrous (copper, aluminum, stainless steel, brass, etc.) will allow for quick drop-off or pick-up and make it easier for the professionals to sort through and figure out what to pay you. Remember that ferrous metals do not hold much monetary value compared to nonferrous metals. Although, you should take the time to clean any toxic metals to ensure a good payout.
