Recycling and Safety Tips

First time selling scrap to National Salvage?

It’s a cinch.

Simply drop off any ferrous scrap (metal that sticks to a magnet like iron, steel or an automobile) or nonferrous scrap (like aluminum, copper, brass, and wire) and get paid in cash. It’s a great way to make money, while helping to preserve and protect the environment.

Bring your scrap in your car, truck or trailer. Get it weighed on the latest scales. Unload, present a valid ID and then get paid.

** Before stopping in, review the list of what we buy/don’t buy. Please note: While we take almost anything made from metal, there are a few restrictions.
