What is scrap metal?

Scrap consists of recyclable materials left over from products and parts that are made up of metals. Types of metal include parts of vehicles, building supplies, appliances and other metal materials. Unlike waste, scrap has monetary value. You can sell scrap metal and other scrap which is not entirely made of metal such as batteries.

The price of scrap metal can fluctuate depending on how much there is, the popularity of it and its demand. Types of metal which can be sold can include: non ferrous metals, non ferrous metals including Aluminium, copper, lead, nickel, brass, Iron, Steel, tin, zinc and most can be recycled continuously.

You can have a positive impact on the environment by recycling your scrap metal from home correctly. Left over metals can rust and leak out into the environment so batteries and other toxic metals should be recycled so that it doesn’t affect the natural fauna and flora.

At Scrappys we purchase and recycle all types of metal, which can be dropped off at our yard or conveniently picked up by on of our trucks. You can contact us for a quote at our contact page.
