Many people ask about data destruction when we talk about electronic scrap, and while this isn’t super specific to the end user, it is an important part of what we do.
Data destruction is a big part of the scrap metal business, and you may be able to make a few extra bucks by looking for some items that you can both scrap and destroy to make a few extra bucks with. You can work with local recyclers to cash in on things like hard drives, x-ray film, and even old paper.
If you can get in touch with some local recyclers that destroy documents, you may be able to get the old electronics like computer towers to sell for scrap…while getting paid to make sure that the hard drives are recycled correctly. These are little tricks to the scrap trade that may make you open up your horizons a little more and really make sure to get your name out there as someone who takes care of the job even more.
We are trying to push this idea out there to keep you a little more aggressive when you are looking for scrap metal to cash in on.
Scrap ya later!
