So you’ve decided to start recycling scrap metal? Welcome! Recycling ferrous and non-ferrous metals can be as rewarding as it is lucrative. This process might prove to be a little more difficult upon first attempts, but with a little know-how it’s easy to pick up. Other than deciphering one metal from another, one of the more difficult places to get started is just where to find it all. Scrap metal is all around us, you just have to know where to look. For beginners a good place to start is in the home! Direct Metals Recycling, located in Augusta, GA, is here to help. Check out the following places on your next scrap metal search.
Around the Home
- Old Electronics – This is a great place to start your journey. Nowadays, most homes have old electronic components laying around. So instead of letting it collect dust and take up space, make some money off of it. Find that old brick phone or computer and take it to the scrap yard for some cash.
- Old Car Parts – Have you ever changed the rotors on your car or had your catalytic converter replaced? Before you throw those “unusable” parts in the trash, take a look at that part and start seeing dollar signs.
- Aluminum Cans – Spring is upon us, and the crack of cool drinks in an aluminum can is sounding throughout the air. Before you discard those cans, take them to us for recycling!
We hope this helps! These three items will help get you started on your way to becoming a scrapping pro. For more tips and scrap metal updates, check us out on social media. You can follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus.
