3) Brass – A lot of the old objects are likely to be made of brass. For example, old candle stands, bed frames, door frames and door knockers. If it looks like something you have is made of gold, and you know for sure that it isn’t, rest assured its made of brass.

Why Do We Need To Dispose Off Scrap Metal Correctly?

Now that we know what constitutes scrap metal, lets look at the top reasons why correct disposal of these items is important:

1) Can be used again and again

There is a very important difference between waste items and scrap items. Scrap metal items hold monetary value and can be reused and recycled. In fact, the metal recycling industry is huge in America and contributes a lot towards saving energy by recycling and upcycling metal parts.

2) Not picked up by standard trash picking facilities

Scrap metal is also one of those items that are almost never picked up by the municipal trash collecting services. So, it is always a good idea to consult with Hawkeye Junk Removal about scrap metal removal and disposal. Hawkeye Junk Removal is the safest option for metal scrap pick up and haul away in Iowa City.

3) Having scrap metal at home is hazardous

It is never a good idea to have scrap at home, no matter how well you think you have stored it. If you do not have the necessary experience and the right tools, moving scrap metal parts can be very dangerous. And it can hurt you and damage your house. This point becomes even more important if you have kids or pets at home.
