Garage sales are on the rise again, believe me…it seems as though every other neighborhood in Fort Wayne is having their annual association garage sale.  This may be stressful for you when it comes to maneuvering around the neighborhood, but it can be beneficial if you’re in search of some scrap to sell to the nearest scrap yard.

Upstate Metal Recycling can help provide you with some information for easy scrapping. Believe it or not, scrap metal can be everywhere!

For example,

You Can Find Copper All Over!

Are you aware that there are several ways that copper is used in our everyday lives? You probably have copper lying around that you don’t need, that you may not even know about!

  • Wiring. Nearly all electrical wiring has a basis of copper. Garage sales often sell buckets full of worthless wires, which can be a scrap collectors jackpot!
  • Motors. Generators, small servers, and virtually anything unbowed use copper.
  • Piping. Chances are good the water pipes in your house are made of copper, and scrap pipes are everywhere. Please collect piping responsibly. It is illegal to steal copper piping from vacant homes and businesses!
  • Pots and Pans. There are still plenty of copper pans in use, although they’re less common than they used to be. This can be a bonus if you’re ready to upgrade your pots and pans set! If you’re lucky you can also find mismatched pots and pans at garage sales.

So, why not help out the planet and your wallet at the same time? Copper recycling helps everyone!   Upstate Metal Recycling takes great pride in giving you a great deal on all your steel, aluminum, brass, copper, electric wire, cars, shingles, etc. You can even ‘Like’ them on Facebook for a coupon on your next visit to the yard.
