GLE Scrap Metal services the United States with scrap metal recycling, from individual metals recycling, all the way to large commercial and municipal projects across North America. If you’re ready to start recycling your metal scrap, GLE can help you get started.
How Do You Dispose of Metal Scrap?
Whether it’s residential, commercial, or municipal, working on buildings generates a lot of metal scrap. Stone, like gravel and concrete chunks, can be recycled for use in asphalt, but often scrap metal can be harder to deal with.
Once bent or broken, the metal can’t be recovered for reuse and needs to be scrapped. This new scrap can be incredibly hard to ship. For the average job, it’s best to get an industrial scrap metal container to gather scrap in.
Once you have a large enough shipment, you may not even need to move it yourself. Especially for commercial works and large-scale electric-based jobs, this may be necessary. If you need transport or scrap metal pickup, give GLE Scrap Metal a call.
Can you Scrap Rusty Metal?
Supporting and reinforcement structures in buildings can often rust, especially when exposed to the elements. Rusty metal can still be reforged and recycled regardless. Exposed metal pipes, sheet metal from roofing, and metal siding rust and can be recycled without any problems.
Similarly, things like water pumps and water heaters can be recycled but need to clear of water before being recycled. Questioning whether or not your metal is recyclable? Reference this guide to gain clarity on scrap confusion!
Identifying and Sorting Before Scrap Metal Collection
Whether you do or you don’t need metal scrap pickup, you can save money by sorting your metal scrap beforehand. Likewise, scrap metal pickup often isn’t free, so it’s usually worth sorting ahead of time.
Using a small hand magnet is a quick way to sort between ferrous and non-ferrous metals. This can make it much easier to sort your materials ahead of time.
