Say goodbye to unwanted metal clutter

Are you tired of having a cluttered home full of old, dusty appliances and metal scraps that you no longer need? If you’ve been putting off a home clean-out due to the presence of scrap materials, including old stoves, refrigerators, washing machines, and other metal objects, you’re not alone. Tackling a home clean-out can be tough, and adding in the responsibility of handling scrap responsibly only makes it more difficult.

Unfortunately, allowing scrap metal to pile up only exacerbates the problem. It takes up valuable space, makes it harder to organize your home, and can even pose a potential safety hazard. Don’t let it pile up any longer.

Say goodbye to your old scrap and hello to cash!

If you’re looking to clear out clutter and make some extra cash, bring your scrap metal and electronics to our facility. Our team is here to help you get rid of unwanted metal items, including old appliances, wires, aluminum siding, piping, and more. Simply drop off your scrap at our facility, and we’ll take care of the rest.

At our facility, we make sure all metals are recycled responsibly, so you can feel good about reducing your environmental impact. Plus, our cash-for-scrap program means you’ll get paid for the metal you bring in. Don’t let excess metal clutter up your space any longer. Bring it to us and get paid for it.

Our guarantee

We guarantee that your old metals will be given a new lease on life by being melted down and repurposed into something else rather than ending up in landfills. So if you’re cleaning out your home and have unneeded appliances or metal scraps lying around, contact P&T Metals for an easy and reliable solution!
