When a washing machine becomes faulty and unusable, it often sits around a person's house for months because they aren’t sure what to do with it. Luckily, scrap metal recycling facilities will pay you for your old, heavy washing machine’s weight in scrap metal! Most washing machines are made of primarily stainless steel or porcelain-coated steel, both of which can earn you some cash at your local recycling facility!
If your refrigerator is past its prime years or has stopped working altogether, you can sell it to a recycling facility to earn some cash to put toward a new one! Refrigerators are primarily made of aluminum and steel, both of which are typically purchased on a price-per-pound basis by scrap metal recycling facilities. Because refrigerators weigh so much, you can sell them to a recycling company for a good amount of cash!
Ovens & Stoves
Like the two appliances above, ovens and stoves contain large amounts of metal. Rather than allowing your old stove to fill in space in your home and rust away over time, you can sell it to a scrap facility! Ovens contain several types of valuable scrap metal, including copper, iron, steel and aluminum!
One more appliance (that we’ll mention in this article) that you can sell to a recycling facility is an air conditioner. These appliances are heavy and primarily made of metal, meaning you can earn a pretty penny by selling them to your local scrap metal recycling center! Before bringing your air conditioner to a recycling facility, make sure to check with them to learn about their requirements for recycling air conditioners!
