When most people think of selling scrap metal to a recycling facility, they think of large trucks loading tons of scrap from some construction site or junkyard. Although they wouldn’t be wrong, the truth is that anyone can sell scrap metal to Action Metals Recyclers; even people that find scrap sources around the home.
If one of your new year’s resolutions was to improve your finances, it’s time to take a closer look at what scrap metal lying around your home can do for you!
Why Should You Recycle Household Scrap Metals?
Recycling metals is one of the best ways a person can help out the environment and local economy. Some of the best reasons to recycle as much scrap metal as possible from around the home are:
- Recycling saves energy when creating new metal products
- Recycling hampers landfill growth
- The conservation of natural resources
- Economic benefits as recycled items are potentially more affordable for consumers
5 Items You Can Recycle From Your Home
Now that you have the motivation to look for recyclable ferrous and non-ferrous metals in your home, where should you start?
Here are 5 examples of items that you can find around your home to recycle for maximum prices at Action Metals Recyclers.
Stainless Steel Sink
Stainless steel sinks leftover from a recent kitchen or bathroom renovation are the perfect candidate for scrap metal recycling.
However, many of these sinks come with other materials that could get them devalued at the recycling center. So, in order to ensure that you get the most money possible out of your stainless steel sink, make sure to weigh them in their own group of scraps.
Copper Pipes and Tubing
Older homes often have copper piping and tubing in their bathrooms and kitchens. Once again, if you’ve had a recent renovation in your home, it’s likely that you have an abundance of copper piping after you’ve replaced your plumbing and fixtures.
Copper is one of the higher-priced scraps of our industry. So, sitting on old copper pipes is really just a waste of your space and money.
Major household appliances eventually become obsolete, complete their total lifecycle, or get replaced by the latest popular unit in the industry. Rather than leaving your old appliances on the curb to get picked up by strangers or sent to a landfill, bring them down to Action Metals Recyclers to let them bring in further cash for your home.
Some of the most common recycled appliances we accept include:
- Washing Machines
Aluminum Pots and Pans
If your aluminum pots and pans were recently replaced this last holiday season, don’t hold onto hope for your old kitchenware. Unusable pots and pans are an excellent source of aluminum that we’ll be happy to accurately weigh and pay the best price in Dallas.
Old Patio Furniture
We all love our outdoor furniture, but Mother Nature can really hand over a beating to our lawn chairs and wrought iron furniture. If you find yourself scowling at those old pieces of furniture cluttering up your yard, turn them into cash today at a local metal recycling facility.
