Do you have bits and pieces of scrap metal lying around? Just finished a house construction or repair job? Or maybe you’re into custom cars. With projects like these, there will always be scrap metal present after it.
Disposing of such materials can be dangerous, as some have sharp edges that might harm you.
You also need to consider that hauling scrap metal would need you to load it up to your vehicle and, of course, we don’t want your vehicle to receive some dents and scratches, right?
We at Gladstone Junk Removal are professionals in removing scrap metal. We’re equipped with the right tools and expertise to remove scrap metals swiftly and efficiently.
Do you recycle scrap metal?
We don’t directly recycle scrap metal. Instead, we transport it to recycling facilities that do the recycling. However, recycling metal is one of our objectives when removing scrap metal.
We don’t want to just dispose of it and throw it away. We strive to do the most eco-friendly method as much as possible.
Recycling metals is a better way to regain materials rather than mining and taking them out from natural resources.
It’s cheaper and requires fewer resources. The best part is that you can even take back some of your money out of it.
What type of scrap metal do you take?
Gladstone Junk Removal takes out scrap metals of varying materials. Here are the types of scrap metal we usually remove:
It’s best to recycle scrap metal whenever possible, but not all scrap metal is recyclable. Some might already be mixed with chemicals like, for example, paint cans which could do more harm instead.
Luckily, you don’t have to worry about identifying which scrap metal to recycle or not. We at Gladstone Junk Removal will do it for you, from start to finish.
4 Tips on How to Dispose of Scrap Metal
Knowing how to deal with scrap metal is one step for you to avoid potential injuries.
Here are four tips you can do when disposing of scrap metal:
Throw small scrap metals in a separate bin
Aluminum cans or any small scrap metals would be the easiest to dispose of, as you can easily throw them together in one go.
Remember to separate your trash and scrap metal in different bins. Doing this makes recycling and disposal easier later on.
Load large scrap metals on a truck
If you recently had a home construction project, or just had a natural disaster in the area, then some scrap metals might be too large for trash bins.
You’ll need to take it to your local scrap/junkyard. The trouble comes in loading and unloading it yourself. It’s advised to get some extra hands to help you with it.
Wear protective gear
When handling scrap metal, always wear personal protective gear such as gloves, goggles, steel toes, etc. to prevent injuries.
