Scrap metal

    Recommended Posts

    Hi, we have 2 old metal water tanks in our garden that we need to get rid of, can anyone recommend a company who will collect them and maybe give us some cash for them?

    Do yourself a favour if you can cut them do it..then pop to bunnings to borrow a trailer for two hours for free then take the cut up tanks to scrap place yourself...getting someone to take them is easy you won't get no more then $10-20

    Give you an idea a ton of metal is worth $200+...

    Hi Guys

     

    If you can manage to transport them yourself you can drop them at the recycling place on Seaford Road and they will pay you for it???

    Unless their is a lot of copper or any non ferrous metals involved they're not worth much, as the guy said previously $200 a tonne aint much,........... imagine a 45gallon (or 200litre) drum full of fluid that'll weigh about 200kgs......... even if your tanks weigh that much, which is doubtful it's only about $40 scrap value, plenty of people around will take them away free, look in the messenger, or contact Onkaparinga council and ask for a "hard waste collection" as a ratepayer you are entitled to two free collections a year.

    if you were living in my old town in blighty you'd only need to leave them out in your front yard overnight and they'd be gone! (along with all the railway cables!)

    no dosh though- although you might get a special offer on tarmac-ing your drive..........
