Old Scrap Electronics

Posted: March 20, 2013

Good Morning Rockaway Recycling Readers!

Everyone always wants to know how they can make more money with their scrap metal, and I want to be able to help them get a little more insight to it.

There are a few items that you can look out for to pick up that you will be able to cash in on. One thing that you should always look out for are Computer Towers, these are a great item that can be worth anywhere from $6-11 each and the same goes for laptops. When you are looking around for scrap, electronics are an item that you will be able to cash in on.

Old printers, fax machines, scanners, and other bulky items are always a good item to pick up because you can generally sell them with your light iron and make a few extra bucks that way. In my mind, if you already moved it once, why not make a buck on it by moving it to your local scrap yard. 

If you need prices on some electronic scrap, you can always go to our Price Page or our YouTube Page, so you can get a better idea on the pricing, as well as other materials that we buy.
