St. Marys Scrap Metal Selling: Three Factors That May Influence Prices


People are probably becoming familiar with the system of selling scrap metal pieces, with many things in their homes being possible candidates for recycling, such as unused decorative items, old kitchen utensils, and even defective appliances. With a bit of effort and research, one can truly say that there is money in garbage.

If you have metal-containing unused items or fixtures at home, do not throw them away just yet. Collect them and arrange to sell the items to trusted scrap metal merchants who can recycle them for other uses or for creating new products. This way, you free up space in your property and also contribute to the preservation of the environment.

Getting Cash for Scraps: Things to Consider When Selling Metal Pieces


Cars, kitchen utensils, musical instruments, and decorative items found in your home all have one thing in common—they are made of metal. One of the things that perhaps not many people know or practice is that these objects, whether in part or as a whole, can be recycled to produce new items and gain profit for their owners. If you have old metal pieces you need to dispose of, here’s a primer on how selling scrap metal goes:

Transporting the Metal

This is actually a piece of cake, even for those who are trying it for the first time. The first thing to consider is how to transport the items to your chosen scrap yards. Technically, any vehicle will do, but using compact cars or sports utility vehicles (SUV) may pose unloading difficulties, and may possibly damage the car’s interior. The most appropriate vehicle to use is a pick-up truck, to unload your metal pieces easily.

Trust Scrap Metal Merchants to Take Care of a Hoon’s Mashed Remains


Amy Noonan of Adelaide newspaper The Advertiser noted as much with the crushing of two cars confiscated by the South Australian government back in October 2010.
A number of states in Australia already have their own anti-hooning laws. Cars caught for hooning may range from the top-of-the-line cars to older units that have become “sleeper” vehicles in their own right. If you want to unload a chunk of scrap metal that was once a car or a hoon that has been written off, trusted scrap metal merchants like Global Resources are ready to get it off your hands.

Scrap Metal Pick up Operations Rid Your Property of Potential Hazards


Certain residential properties contain so much junk they practically beg to be quarantined and their contents hauled off for disposal due to health concerns. Emily Crane of Daily Mail Australia writes about one such property in the greater Adelaide area that is in dire need of attention from a scrap metal pick up service. The owner has apparently dismissed concerns about the need to tidy his place up.
Crane writes that the Playford Council spent over $80,000 in legal fees since 2001 to force David Tavitian of Shaftesbury Road in Elizabeth Vale to clean up his yard. The situation took a turn for the worse in 2006, when an environmental compliance inspection yielded traces of rat faeces, an old refrigerator, and spent wheels.

Scrap Metal Merchants Can Augment Supply and Stabilise Copper Prices


Economies thrive on the movement of prices of various commodities, securities, and financial instruments. When the price of a tradable unit drops, the industries that produce and sell that item suffer from lower earnings. On the other hand, the industries that rely on that tradable unit are able to do business with lower overhead. Vice versa, when the price of a tradable unit rises, the manufacturers and sellers are able to earn more.

This is precisely the situation faced by Australia today with the rising price of copper due to the increased demand for it in China. The Sydney Morning Herald’s Stephen Cauchi reported in an October 15, 2014 article:

Scrap Metal Merchants: Recycle Your Aluminium Items and Save Energy


To contribute to the effort toward a sustainable environment, you can collect aluminium leftovers from your business for recycling and send them to scrap yards, or call scrap metal merchants to collect the items. Recycling services, like Global Resources International Pty Ltd for instance, buy aluminium lithographic sheets, new and old/used 6063 extrusions, and new and old/used 6061 extrusions with not more than 10 percent alloy or painted parts.

For items in NSW, you may deliver the scrap metal at St Mary’s or drop them in designated locations. For non-business products like cans and containers, prepare them for recycling. Below is a guide to getting them ready for recycling.

Earning Cash for Scraps: How to Identify Metal Scraps for Recycling


Recycling is not only an effective way to help the environment survive the amount of waste material that get thrown away daily, but is also a smart way to earn extra cash for scraps and other recyclable items. In Australia, for example, every household produces at least 400 kilograms of waste material each year, which may translate to huge amounts of cash if every Australian were to recycle usable waste.

According to the website Benefits-of-Recycling, in 2002 to 2003 alone, people in New South Wales generated about 12 million tonnes of solid waste, and almost half of them were recycled. The country has been increasingly raising its recycling efforts, especially during Australian clean-up days. One of the ways you can help in the overall bid to recycle is to sell scrap metal to metal recycling services like Global Resources International Pty Ltd.
