Take It to a Scrapyard
You can take scrap metal to the landfill or a scrapyard. Scrapyards pay for new and old metal, which they can recycle into new material.
Separate Ferrous and Non-Ferrous Metals
Separate ferrous from non-ferrous metals before visiting a scrap yard. Ferrous metals include steel and iron, while non-ferrous metals are practically iron-free, such as brass, copper and aluminum. A good rule of thumb is that if a magnet sticks to metal, it’s ferrous, and if not, it’s non-ferrous.
