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.

Sal and his team were fantastic to work with. They were professional and arrived on time. Our scope of work was larger than originally estimated and they immediately dispatched an extra truck to finish up our job in record time. I would highly recommend them for all your removal needs.
They cleaned out my grandmas house today in under 6 hours. And we had a lot of stuff! Friendly guys and great work!! Definitely recommend.
This company is not just professionals at their work but also very kid and hardworking. During the scheduling the staff was very helpful and were able to work with my last minute call with no issues. I received a reminder of my appointment witch was very helpful. The team that arrived to the job took care of business before I knew it it was all done. Very respectful and hard working team. Will definitely recommend anyone and will definitely use this company on my next project.

One of the best companies I have ever dealt with. Professional, courteous, reasonable and efficient. Highly recommend.
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.
I would highly recommend them they did a great job and the men were very hardworking and very nice I intend to get them back for more at another time

Kyle and Joe were wonderful! Very efficient process. I called and gave brief information to a very professional person. They came out the next day. Wiped their feet, quoted me a very fair price, and removed my furniture. I’m very pleased with their service and friendliness. I will definitely recommend them to my family and friends! Meredith R.

I can't say enough about Sal. He was very patient, knowledgeable, and went out of his way to ensure my company was taken care of. I absolutely recommend anyone to use this company. They get in and out very quickly and offer a great price. They also stick to their word which is very rare now-a-days!
Called for estimate for tv removal, good price came that morning I called, Sal is great, will use again.

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!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!!!!
Contacted Sal to have some old boxes removed, called me the next day to set up a time to estimate the work. Came first thing the next morning and gave me a great quote. We agreed on a wonderful price and literally 15 minutes later he was here with his truck cleaning out our boxes. He was done quickly and efficiently! Very nice man, We will be contacting him again in the near future! My family and I highly recommend!
