If you want to make money selling us your scrap metal at one of our Augusta, GA or Macon, GA locations, make sure you have these essentials in  your scrapping truck so that you can select the right kinds of metals and get the highest price for your scrap from us at Direct Metals Recycling.

Essential Scrap Metal Tool: Magnet1. A Magnet

Believe it or not, this is going to be one of your most indispensable tools and the one that will make you the most money. At Direct Metals Recycling, we only accept non-ferrous metals – that means anything without steel in it. To determine if your metal contains steel, test it with the magnet. If the magnet sticks, then you don’t want that metal – it contains steel!

2. Tools and Time

Many things are made of different types of metals or materials and need to be taken apart in order to get the valuable scrap metal that you want. To do this, you will need the appropriate tools, time and workstation to clean your scrap.

3. Transport

Once you know where the scrap metal is, you’ve got to have a way to collect it and bring it to us! Trailers and trucks work great.

5. Your ID

In order to reduce the amount of scrap metal theft, most scrap yards require you to have a state ID.

6. A Favorite Scrap Yard

Now that you have all of your tools you can start collecting metal, but where are you going to take it to when you are ready to sell? Pick your favorite scrap yard, Direct Metals Recycling! We have locations all over Georgia and one of them is convenient to you.
