Can You Make Money Scrapping Sports Equipment?


Sports of all types have multiple different tools to make them happen. Many include metal ones, and we want to touch on key sports to look at while scrapping.

  • Baseball/Softball: You can find metal in a few places, from the aluminum bats to the fencing around the fields. Make sure you look around while demolitions of fields are going on, and you can scrap the fences and maybe even the foul poles.
  • Football: While there isn’t too much gear to scrap from football, the field goalposts and bleachers may be up for grabs. Many schools like to change out their bleachers every 7-15 years, so be on the lookout to see if you can help out.
  • Golf: With millions of people taking up golf annually, old steel golf clubs are constantly being thrown out. Some golf clubs have aluminum heads that you can cut off, but most of the clubs are made of steel.
  • Beer & Beverage Cans: Where there are sports, beer, and assorted aluminum cans are often left behind. Check the stands and parking lots to see if they can be cleaned and scrapped with your local scrap yard.
