1. Separate sellable scrap from trash

Whatever is lying around in your basement or garage may not be fit for scrap metal collection. You will want to identify the metal and discard plastic, rubber or anything else that’s attached to it. If you don’t have the tools to separate metal from trash, you can wait until your scrap collection experts arrive and do that for you.

2. Move the scrap metal to your main entrance

Most scrap collection companies prefer having all your scrap metal piled up at one place from where it can be easily whisked away. This will help you save time by getting your scrap metal quickly loaded onto the truck.

3. Get a price quote beforehand

Always get a price quote from your service provider beforehand so that when they put your scrap metal on the weighing scale, you already know the amount you are going to get.
