How to Be More Eco-Friendly & Make Some Extra Cash

How to Be More Eco-Friendly & Make Some Extra Cash

For the average homeowner, junk is worthless and something to be removed, yet the reality is, the stuff you throw away is worth money.

If you have a domestic appliance that has finally given up the ghost and the cost of repair is too high, the chances are it is worth something. The current trend for environmental conservation has given the recycling industry a real boost, and there are many scrap metal businesses that buy second hand items from householders, and the metals are recycled.

Depleting Resources

Our planet provides us with everything, with all metals contained in ore that is under the ground, which means there is a limited supply. For centuries, man has intensively mined the many valuable resources, which can never be replaced. This makes it even more important to focus on recycling, and hopefully, we can lighten the tremendous load we place on Mother Earth by re-using existing materials.

What is Recyclable?

Many of the household appliances we use today can be recycled, and might include the following:

  • Car Batteries
  • PVC copper wire
  • Air Conditioning systems
  • Radiators
  • Bottles and Cans
  • Car parts (engine and bodywork)

Fast & Efficient Service

If you have decided to stop dumping unwanted items, and wish to have them recycled responsibly, give us a call at Martin Scrap Metals, and we will arrange to collect your scrap, and we pay top dollar, so you will have some extra funds for your next outing. If you manage to accumulate a number of items, you might be pleasantly surprised at how much cash we will hand you, and if you want to get rid of that old car in the corner of the garden, we will collect it, recycle it responsibly, and pay you for the privilege.

Free Skip Service

If the family were to go through the entire house, there would likely be a number of unwanted or defective things, which is why we offer a free skip loan, to allow you to store the items ready for collection. Once our driver arrives, he pays you in cash, then hooks up the skip and away he goes, and you are a few dollars richer and rid of that unwanted stuff that has been cluttering up the garage for years.

Educate the Family

One idea is to hold a family meeting, which is a good time to explain that many of the items we usually throw in the bin, can actually be recycled. Then you can make a list of all the different things that can be put to one side, and every few months, give us a call and we’ll come and take it away. You could always put the money toward the next family holiday, and with everyone focused on recycling, you are doing your bit to promote greener practices at home.

If we actually stop and think about how we can reduce the negative impact we have on the environment, there are many ways to achieve this. Scrap metal is a valuable resource, so before you throw it away, contact us and we will recycle it for you, and you will receive the best rates in cash.
