Collecting Scrap Metal

 Welcome back to my blog! In this post i'll give you some tips and simple techniques on how to collect scrap metal and start collecting some money :) .


 As you already know, you can make a decent amount of money selling scrap metal. Now you need to learn the game of scrapping metal. Collecting scrap metal might seem daunting at first but once you know the bobs and weaves it will be like second nature. First, we need to know when and where to locate and get scrap metal. There is an endless flow of scrap metal being thrown away everyday and its your job as a scrapper to keep your eyes peeled. For example, you can find scrap metal on the side of the road, in dumpsters, junkyards, or even auctions you just need to know its value so you can buy it and sell for more. You must collect everything if it is worth it, and if its free TAKE IT.

 Think about how much scrap metal you could get, no one wants scrap metal they think its trash, but their trash is your treasure! Just think of it like this, what if every garbage day someone throws away a dollar worth of scrap metal, what if you went through one street of 50 houses, that's already 50$ worth of scrap metal in one street! It's like picking up free money on the curb, this is how you should think as a scrapper.

 Once you find out the trash days in your city, every morning or afternoon before the trash is collected go around and go collect the precious scrap metal people are throwing away. Pick up anything that you think is worth it, from aluminum pots and pans to microwaves to bigger appliances like refrigerators or dishwashers. Don't be afraid to get out and grab the small pieces of scrap metals, I mean if you keep jumping out your car every trash day and grabbing these small pieces it will eventually add up to some big cash.

 Many scrappers drive around with trucks, but you could use a small car to collect too, just attach a trailer to the back so you can pick up more scrap and don't spend too much on gas for too much trips.

 Also, look around your house for some scrap, I bet you'll find some things you don't need like old computers or phones which can be scrapped for gold! I'll explain how to scrap these in another post.

 Now you know what to do so go out and start hunting for some scrap! Find out when your garbage day is in parts of your city, and find out the best times to go collect it. Happy Scrapping! :)
