Recently the iScrap App Team was fortunate enough to be featured on the recycling leading website and fellow green partner, Earth911. The article was about simple ways to make money while recycling scrap metal and the easiest way to make the most from it.
“Recycling and reusing items like plastic bottles, hand-me-down clothing and newspapers is important to make part of one’s every day routine to help increase the green movement. One section of the recycling industry that may not be as popular, but just as important, is scrap metal recycling. Scrap metal exports are one of the largest in the US and by recycling metals, we reduce the amount of ore drilling throughout the world.
Some of these metals include copper, steel, aluminum, brass, iron and wires, but they are often tossed in the garbage due to the lack of knowledge and sources for metal recycling. We’re here to help educate the community to keep an eye out for those opportunities to grab some metal and bring it to the right place.
Recycling Scrap Metal Makes Money
What many people don’t know is that most scrap metal can be recycled for cash payments at local scrap yards around the country, thus adding to the green movement.
Scrap metal yards deal with customers that are in the trade industry that come across metal on a daily basis. Many could be construction companies that may have tons of steel beams from structures, electricians that could have wires and electrical equipment or plumbers that have copper piping and brass fixtures. While scrap yards see a large quantity of these metals from the trade industry, homeowners are always welcomed and encouraged to bring their own metal scrap to make money and recycle the metals at the right place.”
