Scrap Metal Everywhere

Posted: June 28, 2013


Let’s talk about scrap baby, let’s talk about you and me…haha, maybe a few of you will know the lyrics to the real song, but it was on the radio this morning and with scrap metal everywhere, we had it on our mind. 

I was driving home the other day and on the side of the road there was a catalytic converter from a car that looked like it had fallen off. Unfortunately it was an aftermarket cat, thus the reason that it fell off so easy I bet, but it just shows that there is scrap metal everywhere.

I look at some of the loads of scrap metal that our customers bring in and it really impresses me the way that they are able to sort, separate, and pre-process the scrap metal that they have before it comes to Rockaway Recycling. Sometimes I wonder how with there being scrap metal everywhere, why more people don’t realize that there are dollar dollar bills ya’ll laying on the ground.

I know that everywhere we go we see scrap metal, and it is a problem if I go on vacation or away that I keep an eye out for a scrap yard or for scrap metal on the road that I get in trouble…so is life.

With so much scrap metal everywhere, please continue to use Rockaway Recycling’s YouTube Page and Pictures + Materials Page to be able to learn more about what type of scrap you have or what you can look for.

Scrap ya later!
