Why is Scrap Metal Good?

Scrap Metal. Who Needs it??


It is crazy to see the amounts of things that people throw out. I went to my Mom’s house the other day and her neighbor was throwing out maybe 500 lbs of iron. I was driving my pickup truck and I wanted to go into the house to say hi first and wish my Mom a Happy Mother’s Day (smart huh…haha), and an hour later I went out to get the metal and POOF…GONEZO!

I started laughing because it was so fast and I didn’t even see which scrapper was able to pick it up. These guys have a nose for this stuff and are out hunting 24/7. I even go on vacation and when I see scrap on the street, or see a scrap yard I am always tempted to go pick it up or go inside…again, scrap is an addiction, and the only meetings that you can go to are at the scrap yard…haha.

We call them SAWHM, Scrappers Are Welcome Here Meetings. So whether you need up-to-date copper prices, a container for steel, or anything else, give us a buzz and we will get you the scrap metal help you need.
