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.
