10 Frequently Asked Questions about Recycling Scrap Metal

By AWD Digital

We all know where to go when we want to purchase a new car or fridge, but you may find yourself wondering where on earth you can take these items once they have reached the end of their lifespan. We often see people leaving whitegoods and other scrap metal out for hard rubbish collection, and we shake our head at the waste of money and the cost to the environment.
Here are some common questions we hear about scrap metal recycling and our helpful answers to your dilemmas:

1. Where should I take my old white goods if they’re too far gone to fix?

The quick answer is: nowhere. You don’t actually need to take them anywhere. Just call Metal Men Recycling and we will come and pick them up at a time that is convenient for you. We offer 24 hour turn around, so we will have your old white goods off your hands in no time. Instead of costing you money or the time it takes to wait for a hard rubbish collection, you will actually receive cash for your scrap metal and save time as we do the hard work for you.

2. What kind of scrap metal do you accept?

We accept all kinds of ferrous and non-ferrous metal materials. Most household equipment and industrial machinery, including fridges and even old cars won’t be a problem for us to pick up from your premises.

3. What if I have a fair bit of scrap metal?

Our pick-up service applies to any scrap metal, no matter the size or weight. Our service is all-inclusive, meaning we will supply you with the appropriate bins, deliver the bins to the property where the scrap metal is located, and then come and pick up the bins the next day (or at your convenience).

4. Do I have to pay for the bins?

Our bins are provided free of charge, and we have a vast range of bins on hand to satisfy your scrap metal collection needs.

5. What if I want to get rid of metal waste my business has produced?

We service businesses as well as homes. If you’re running a trade service, it may make things easier to bring your scrap directly to us. We offer a door-trade service along with our 24-hour metal collection service. Whether you have a factory, farm, or team of tradies, we make it super easy to get rid of your scrap metal.

6. How do you pay for scrap metal?

At Metal Men Recycling, we pride ourselves on being able to suit our customers’ needs. We offer EFTPOS, cash or cheque, depending on your preference.

7. Can I bring my metal scrap to you?

Yes, we offer a door trade service for drive-in customers. We have excavators and forklifts to help you unload and there is plenty of space for your car or truck.
