By recycling metal, you reduce waste, keep valuable materials in productive circulation, and lower the need for additional metal mining and its environmental and social impacts. But that’s not all, you can also make some cash by recycling your scrap metal at the local scrap yard.

Each type of metal has a different value and scrap yards have different requirements, so call the scrap yard first to ensure they accept the types and quantities of metal you have. Learn more about recycling scrap metal for money.

Find scrap metal drop-off locations near you.
