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.

    5 star review  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. They did such a good job yesterday that I called them back again today for more revival. They’re very fast, efficient, easy to work with and professional. Joe and Kyle came both days and we’re incredibly polite and thoughtful in what was a hard situation for me. Bravo A+ Enterprises! Repeat business speaks for itself. Meredith R.

  • 5 star review  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

    5 star review  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.

  • 5 star review  Hard working guys got the job done in one day. I recently bought a foreclose property and have A+ Enterprises help do the clean up. Its a 3 bedroom house full of junk, and everything was gone at the end of the day. Image a house hoarders live in, 3 bedrooms, each with bed, dressers, night stand, TV and many other trash, you do not want to be in the room more than 1 minute. Kitchen full of dirty dishes, appliances and dining table with chairs. At the end of the day, whatever not bolted down was gone, including most of the nasty carpet. I will definitely use their service again. Great service and the hard working people.
