Scrap Metal Recycling & Pick Up

Table of Contents

Junk can pile up before you know it. One day, you have a small pile of junk, the next time you look, there is a massive pile of junk. Junk is the byproduct of home improvement, automotive repair, and new construction.

While household waste may be easy to dispose of, the same thing cannot be said about junk. Our junk removal is available to all local consumers, businesses, government entities, tourist destinations, landlords, tenants, and public facilities.

How Our Scrap Metal Removal Works?

Our professional junk removal collects, hauls, and drops off all kinds of junk at legal waste collection facilities. We believe our junk removal services are giving back to the community by helping consumers who do not, otherwise, have the means to get rid of their junk.

To initiate the removal process, the client must request a consultation with one of our qualified technicians. An appointment is scheduled, and the technician is dispatched to the client’s property within 24 and 48 hours of the initial request.

During the consultation, the technician assesses the scrap metal to determine the best disposal strategy. We always encourage recycling to landfill disposal because it keeps the pile of junk from continuing to generate dangerous greenhouse gases.

An appointment is scheduled for pickup and disposal of the scrap metals, which generally occurs at a later date.

What To Expect On Scrap Metal Removal Appointment Day?

The customer is alerted of the junk removal team’s arrival about 30 minutes before the scheduled appointment. We want the client to be fully aware of what is taking place throughout the junk removal process.

Upon arrival at the client’s property, the removal team will begin to load up the scrap metal, separating each type for easier disposal. Most scrap metal is recyclable, depending on the interface.

Non-Recyclable Scrap Metals

As previously mentioned, not all scrap metals are recyclable.

Any metal that is combined with chemicals cannot be recycled, according to most municipal scrap metal recycling protocols.

What Are The Benefits Of Scrap Metal Recycling?

Scrap metal recycling helps protect the environment from further damage caused by greenhouse gases.
