Scrap Metal Pick Up

I have an old 5' metal locker that I would like picked up. I have had Dudley remove items in the past but I am not getting any phone call return. Any other suggestions on who to call? I tried to search but only found old threads.

the problem is its worth about 50 cents in scrap so for someone to pick it up for free when gas is 2.75 a gallon is going to be tough.

Post it on Craigslist. I did that last week and a guy came out and got the metal that day.

Leave it on the street.itlls be gone within a few days so long as there some level of foot or car traffic. Also methods.

As a follow up, Dudley did respond and items taken. Thank you Dudley, nice guy. Thanks all for suggestions.

Does anyone have a name and number of a "guy" that takes scrap metal for free? Particularly a hot water heater.

Any current suggestions here? I have a hot water heater and a truck box that I need gone.

Put in the crub with a free sign. Someone will take it.

Unfortunately, I live on a dead end street. Nobody is passing by. :-(

Sack - you really don't know where she lives, do you. ;-)

Calico - I take it your DPW won't. Quite a few of them do these days. Otherwise post on Craigslist or FreeCycle and someone is bound to take it. Hopefully they can actually find it...


Stop by the Washington Shop Rite and pick up a Treasure Hunt magazine or go on
www.treasurehunt.online. There use to be a guy who put an add in weekly and would pick up just about anything.

Is it outside? I can probably pick it up and take it to the scrapyard.

Craftbeerlover - Yes, the water heater and the truck box are both outside. My husband's pickup is not running right now, so he can't take it. Some other guy he knows was supposed to come get both and take them for scrap. But we haven't heard from him. I'll PM you.

Post on fb marketplace and the junk sites. All my scrap metal, fridges, dishwasher, etc were taken for free. People came and hauled it off. I kept getting messages.
