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.
