Why hire a scrap metal removal and collection service through Airtasker?
Whether you’re decluttering your house, renovating, or simply doing your regular cleaning, chances are, you’ll get a pile of junk metal that you won’t know what to do with. And while you could drive to a nearby scrapyard or ask around for someone to do it, Airtasker offers a more convenient way to go about scrap metal removal and collection.
When you book a scrap metal collection task via our platform, we’ll connect you with multiple Taskers near you. They will go to your location, pick up the items, and deliver them to your chosen location. All you need to do is post a task online, wait for your chosen Tasker to arrive, and that’s it!
No need to load the junk in your car or take time away from your busy schedule. If you have a lot of scrap metal, you won’t need to look far to find an available vehicle for it, either. Hire a Tasker, and an appropriate pick-up truck can come to you. Ready to book? Just tap the “Post a task” button to get started.

What does a scrap metal removal and collection service include?
If it’s your first time booking a scrap metal collection and removal service near you, here’s what you can expect a rubbish removalist to do:
Scrap metal collection
When your rubbish removalist arrives, they’ll bring the necessary equipment for domestic scrap collection. This may include bins, ropes, boxes, or even ramps to lift the more massive pieces onto a truck. They usually provide the car or van to transport your scrap metal. All you need to do is point to the pile or items that need to be picked up, and the Taskers will take care of the rest.
Other types of scrap metal collection
Typically, rubbish removalists can handle all types of scrap metal that are accepted at disposal sites or recycling facilities. This includes aluminium soda cans, old brass fixtures, old cast iron tools, copper pipes and wires, broken pots and pans, old electronics, batteries, old razors, belt buckles, and more.
For items that have sharp or jagged edges, make sure that they’re packaged adequately before your removalist picks them up. This will help avoid causing injury to yourself, your Tasker, or to the people who will be receiving the scrap metal.
Scrap metal removal
Once your scrap metal has been picked up, your rubble removalist will take the load to your chosen drop-off site. The destination can be a recycling facility, junkyard, or an organisation that accepts scrap metal. If you want your removalist to take care of selling the items, you can specify this in the task post as well.
You can coordinate with them to make sure that you get a reasonable price for your scrap metal. Then, they’ll drive back to your location to give you the money from the sale, or you can ask the buyer to send the money to your account.
Other removal services
If you have other items that need clearing, you can also book other removal or rubbish removal services on Airtasker. If you’re clearing scrap metal as part of a cleaning or moving process, you can book Taskers to help you out with the rest of your checklist, too.
