Scrap Metal Tips

If you are looking to make some extra money on your scrap metal, you can always check out our YouTube videos for helpful tips on separating your copper pipe, stripping copper wires, taking apart your computers for scrap, and many more options to making more money on your scrap metal.


Be sure to always use the magnet test to see what kind of metal you have. The magnet will stick to Ferrous metals like steel, iron, and cast iron. This metal will not be worth as much money and Rockaway Recycling requires a 500lb. minimum to pay for this type of material. If the magnet does not stick, you are in luck and have a non-ferrous metal. These metals can be anything from copper, brass, aluminum, stainless steel, and more. Be sure to separate these metals to the best of your knowledge before coming in and we will be sure to pay you the right price for them.
