How much money is scrap metal worth?
Scrap metal hauling can be a dangerous task if not done correctly. Let’s take an example, of a homeowner wanting to recycle an old stove to get cash for metal scrap.
The homeowner will first need to remove & lug the old stove out of the house. This requires a helper, and old stoves can be EXTREMELY heavy. Next, he will need a way to get the stove to the scrap metal recycling center.
The homeowner and a helper load the stove into the back of the minivan, scratching the paint & interior trim in the process. After driving 10 miles to the scrap metal dealer, the homeowner unloads the stove and cashes in!
The stove weighed 500lbs and the price per gross ton from Weitsman of Scranton is $140. Total take home pay: $32. Let’s break down the profitability of scrapping items yourself.
- Helper for 1.5 hours: $20
- Fuel to/from the scrap yard: $15
- Damage to vehicle: $80
- Potential for injury: High
Total cost: $115
As you can see, the COST to recycle an old stove yourself is more than 3 times more than the scrap value of the stove itself. Call a professional junk removal company and let us take care of it for you.

The Problem With Free Scrap Metal Removal
Once upon a time, fuel was cheap and the price for scrap metal was sky high. People scoured the roads looking for anything made of metal to cash it in at the scrap yard for a solid payday. Some people made over $1,000 per day simply picking up scrap appliances!
Unfortunately due to the global economic conditions we are currently in, the price of scrap metal has decreased significantly. This is why when you look up “free scrap metal removal near me”, you won’t find hardly anybody offering that service anymore.
With that said, there is still some value in old scrap metal. This is why we offer a small discount if there is a large amount of scrap metal that we are removing. In addition, our company is fully licensed & insured to protect you and your property in case of any potential damage.

Scrap Metal Removal FAQs
Do you charge for scrap metal removal?
Like all junk removal services, we do charge for scrap metal removal. The reason for this is while scrap metal does have some value, our costs of insurance & employees are higher than the value of the scrap. With that said, we do heavily discount loads of scrap to be removed.
What types of scrap metal do you take?
Not only do we remove basic scrap metal such as tin, iron, shelving, etc. but large items as well. We can even remove old scrap heavy machinery and cars from your property!
What is scrap metal worth?
Glad you asked! Scrap metal is worth approximately $.05/pound as of 1/1/2020. For example, that means that 1 ton of scrap metal (what we can fit in one of our dumpsters) is worth approximately $110.

I got a 100% accurate estimate from the owner and he dispatched a crew to clean out my house the next day (!). The guys were professional and very nice and personable, making a tough situation much easier to handle. Moreover, they worked until the job was done way over my expectations. This company has the best prices in our area and they are complete pros. I would recommend them to anyone...don't hesitate and call A+ first! They will be my first call in the future!
I was looking for someone to haul away some things from a home remodeling project. I called A Plus and within 10 minutes I received an email and was able to call the owner right away. He sent his crew out the next day and took care of my hauling needs with a great price. I cannot tell you how pleased I am at the prompt, courteous service I received from both the owner and the crew. I highly recommend them. Mary Gadomski
These guys are awesome! They came here when promised, were really nice and friendly, and they did what they were supposed to do in a timely fashion. The price quoted was changed because I had more “stuff” to get rid of. However, they quoted the difference before getting the rest of the things out and we agreed. I will certainly call them next time. Thanks, A+!

EXTREMELY PLEASANT AND PROFESSIONAL! Gave them a call to remove some old furniture and assorted boxes of junk. They said the had a crew in my area the next morning and could be here at 9am. Arrived right at 9 on the dot and got straight to work. They battled through all my cobwebs and work quick and efficiently. No trouble or damage from moving some big items in narrow areas. The price they quoted was great value for all the work they did. I have already and will continue to HIGHLY recommend them.
Hired A Plus Enterprises last year to remove some old pool equipment, old yard equipment, and old furniture from my house. There timing, professionalism, and reasonable pricing was overwhelmingly amazing. Great job and look forward to hiring you again!
Top notch. I called and spoke with a Guy named Sal. Very friendly and excellent Customer Service, 100%. I was set up in minutes. The pricing was great. Delivered it next day. When it was time for pick up I advised that I would be working and not able to hear the door so just knock hard. I went out on my Lunch break wondering what the heck? And the Dumpster was gone. Great service. Great Price. I called about 6 Dumpster Rental places and of all of them, A+ Was definitely the best and Props to Sal. Great Service. Truly is A+
- Mary Jane Meaney
Very professional. Very polite. Efficient. I will use this company again. Prices were reasonable.
I would rate over 5 stars if I could. A+ Enterprises is definitely A+! When we called them we were surprised to hear that they do same-day service, and they arrived quickly. The owner, Sal, is a wonderful guy who is honest and friendly. Everybody works very efficiently and is professional. Can't recommend them enough!
One of the best companies I have ever dealt with. Professional, courteous, reasonable and efficient. Highly recommend.

I never leave reviews but Sal (I think his name is) was great. Both times we used them they showed up the next day on time and did a fast and efficient job. Personable and reliable. Highly recommend.
The price was amazing and the workers were professional. They completed the job within a short period of time and I’m having them come back for more work. Thanks A plus
Sal and his team are amazing! They came and did a clean out the same day I called. They are honest, flexible, quick, and professional. They are worth every penny they charge. I wouldn't consider calling anyone else.Ryan K.

They will be my first call in the future!Added 3/1/2020: So 18 months later I had to clean out a 2nd floor apartment and 3rd floor attic. This attic was stuffed floor to ceiling with junk and the apartment full of furniture. Sal had a crew there within 24 hrs of my call and cleaned it out in ONE DAY! They even swept up and went through with garbage cans to completely clean the house. I value good service and A+ always delivers...I recommend them to my friends and family and have now used them 3 times. Each time the price is far less than I expected and the work is way better than I'd expect. If you have a job that you're afraid to deal with...call them!!!!! It is the best call you'll ever make! They have always come through for me. Thank you!!!!
