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.

Top Scrap Metal Removal related questions

You can find scrap metal collectors and removalists near you by booking on Airtasker. We help you save time and effort that you would spend contacting various recycling or collection facilities - with one post, you can reach multiple collectors near you. Once you find a service you like, they’ll go to your location, haul the metal, and drop it off at your chosen site.
This may vary depending on your Tasker and your chosen recycling or dumpsite. Typically, they collect scrap metal such as iron, copper, aluminium, brass, stainless steel, and ferrous or non-ferrous metal. This includes metal from soda cans, old cars, and appliances that can no longer be re-used. By availing scrap metal or scrap car removal services, you get rid of rubbish, make more space in your home, and help save the environment by encouraging metal re-use.
Some Taskers may offer this service, but it’s best to ask the scrapyard or recycling service who will be receiving your scrap metal. Take note that prices for scrap metal will vary depending on the type of metal and the weight of the load. You may be able to ask for an estimate through your Tasker by including this in your task post.
You can drop off your scrap metal at a junkyard, recycling facility, or similar destination near you. If you’re unfamiliar with where to find one in your location, you can ask your Tasker to look for one on your behalf. Since they’re from your community, they will most likely be familiar with where you can drop off your scrap metal. Some may even know drop-off sites for your other rubbish or items that need collection and removal.

What does a scrap metal removal and collection service include?

Clearing out scrap metal is an essential part of keeping your home or office clean. Scrap metal can come in the form of soda cans, old metal knick-knacks, broken metal furniture (like file cabinets), or even appliances. Some Taskers may also be able to offer scrap car removal near you. Just remember to specify the kind of scrap metal in your task post, so your rubbish removalist can provide the appropriate equipment and transportation for hauling it.  

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 a 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.
