Dispose of Scrap Metal Right

Do not place any scrap metal in your curbside recycling. The only metal that belongs in your curbside recycling are aluminum and steel food and beverage cans. 


Other scrap metal like extra large cookie and popcorn tins, car parts, appliances, license plates, wire hangers and hot water tanks can be recycled at a local scrap yard or through a community scrap metal drop-off for residents. To find collection information for your community, use this website’s geolocation services, or choose your community from the green ‘Select a City’ drop-down at the top of the page and click ‘See Details.’


Before recycling a license plate, we recommend cutting it in some way so it cannot be used by someone else.


For a list of scrap metal recyclers, see the Business Locations list below.


There are also hauling companies willing to pick up and haul away your scrap metal items. Using your zip code, check the Yellow Pages for scrap metal haulers or removal services.



Looking to recycle, donate or dispose of other items? Use the dark blue 'What Do I Do With?' search bar at the top of every page of this website. Allow location services or use the city drop-down to find opportunities in your local area.
