A lot of people ask about data destruction when we talk about electronic scrap, and while this may not be a traditional “Metal Monday,” it is something that can be scrap related very often.
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. Things like hard drives, xray film, and even old paper are all items that you may be able to work with local recyclers to cash in on.
If you are able to 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 that takes care of the job even more.
Just another idea that we are trying to push out there to keep you a little more aggressive when you are looking for scrap metal to cash in on.
Scrap ya later scrapigator!
