Scrap metal does not go in your curbside recycling bin. Recycle car parts, metal cord and rope, and scrap pieces at a local yard. Appliances can also be recycled at a scrap yard. There may be a small fee to remove Freon from refrigerators, air conditioners and dehumidifiers.
Some communities have a scrap metal drop-off for residents. Check with your city service department.
There are also hauling companies willing to pick up and haul away your scrap items. Earn a rebate for the metal. For a list of scrap metal recyclers, residents and businesses should see our Business Recycling Directory.
