Sgt. Scrap Helps Recyclers Distinguish Scrap Metal


Pennsauken Township, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/26/2017 -- Residents who have a large amount of scrap metal to sell are encouraged to make sure that no trash has gotten mixed into their collection by reading this month's post on Sgt. Scrap's blog, which helps residents determine the difference between material that can be sold as scrap and that which should be thrown away.

As one of the area's top roll-off container services in Chester County, Sgt. Scrap knows that taking the time to differentiate between garbage and scrap metal can save both time and frustration when it comes time to complete the sale.

Though scrap materials are sometimes colloquially referred to as trash, trash and scrap are two different categories of materials. Scrap metal is material that can retain its key properties when melted down This makes them recyclable, as they can be formed into other products after they are broken down.

Scrap materials can include metal that is able to retain its value, leftover construction supplies and vehicle materials. On the other hand, trash is worthless and does not retain its intrinsic properties after being melted down, meaning that it cannot be recycled and will be rejected from a pick-up.
