For a typical homeowner, scrap metal recycling might conjure up the idea of collecting aluminum beverage cans and metal food cans. The fact is, scrap metal recycling takes on a whole new view when you look around the house and realize how many metal-containing items can be recycled.
Make Money from Recyclable Scrap Metal Items in Your Home:
In the kitchen, old iron and copper pans can be recycled. Fridges, stoves, and microwaves have valuable copper wiring. And, of course, beverage cans made of aluminum are highly recyclable.
Washers and dryers are an excellent source of scrap metal – from the steel structure to the motor wiring that is full of copper. Copper pipes/plumbing are considered a guaranteed moneymaker.
In and around the backyard, there is a treasure trove of metal that can be recycled – from iron furniture, to parts of lawn mowers, to metal railings, to aluminum screen doors, to steel eavestrough.
Your garage is full of metals that can be recycled: power tools, bicycles, tire rims, hardware, and even an old car (a huge source of scrap metal). Auto parts are a very valuable source of metal.
How the Recycling Process Works
Scrap metal recycling can realistically generate cash simply by selling off household scrap metal. Practically every type of household metal can be effectively recycled and all of them are valuable. If you look around, you’ll notice waste metal everywhere – and you’ll consider recycling for cash.
Short of going into business, household scrap metal can be quite valuable, depending on the ups and downs of the metals market. However, for the best dollar value, it’s recommended that scrap metal be sorted and separated so that a scrap dealer is relegated only to processing the metals.
The Benefits of Scrap Metal Recycling
Today, metal recycling affects all industries, large and small. The benefits of recycling have a positive effect on everyone from consumers, to manufacturers, to retailers, to homeowners.
Using scrap metal in manufacturing significantly reduces greenhouse emissions – a major benefit of recycling. It means that virgin ore isn’t required (scrap metal already has a carbon footprint).
Metal recycling helps the environment. Recycling one tonne of waste steel saves thousands of pounds of coal, while recycling one tonne of aluminum conserves many megawatts of electricity.
As for local economies, metal recycling helps businesses to reduce their waste and reduce the cost of their own raw materials. There are also savings on landfill costs and/or incinerator costs.
