Ever wake up, hit the alarm clock, and want to throw it against the wall? Well…sometimes those old alarm clocks and other household electronics are great items to be able to scrap. Many of the newer clocks will mostly be plastic, but many of the old ones have metal frames and small circuit boards inside of them. These circuit boards will be considered low-grade boards, but they are still worth more than light iron or steel prices.
Getting Low-Grade Boards
Many household electronics have steel and smaller low-grade circuit boards that you can sell at your local yard. Sometimes, there are still circuit boards, even if the outer case is made of plastic. This is where becoming an “Expert” scrapper and having experience will really come into play.
Many people might pass by some of the lower-grade items like clocks, microwaves, alarm systems, and other weird things, but those are great items to cash in at your local yard. Don’t forget you can always send us pictures of what you have or post them to our Facebook Group.
Scrap ya later!
