Most metals can often be recycled for cash at scrapyards. However, it is a good idea to contact ahead of visiting to make sure a particular scrapyard is currently purchasing.
Some metals are worth more than others. Follow the steps below to sell scrap metals.
- Separate metals
- Contact a scrapyard
- Deliver the metal
Check to see which of the available scrap a magnet will stick to. These are ferrous metals and are usually less valuable than non-ferrous scrap, which magnets do not stick to.
Using the yellow pages, an online search tool like the iScrap App or performing a web search, find the contact details for local scrapyards and get in touch to ask about selling procedures and estimated rates. Find a buyer who makes an offer you agree with.
Transport the metals to the scrapyard, following their instructions for unloading. Most scrapyards pay upon receipt.
