The snow has melted, the grass is starting to show, and the first daffodil has sprouted. For many of us, in our business and home, that means it’s time for spring cleaning!
It’s time to clean up and clear out. It’s time to get rid of those items taking up space and getting in your way. It’s time to recycle your scrap metal.
At Moffatt Scrap Iron & Metal Inc., we are happy to help you with your spring cleaning. Bring us your scrap and we’ll recycle it. Or, if you have a lot of items we are happy to arrange to deliver a bin to your business or residence.
People often ask us what they can bring in, and we tell them, “Nothing is too big or too small.”
Maybe you have an antique lamp that no longer works, or a bunch of hangers you don’t need, or a garden bench that is worn out — we’ll take it all!
You can bring in a single D battery or you can bring us your airplane. We’re happy to recycle it for you.
Spring is the Perfect Time to Clean Out Your Garage, Shed, and Basement
The garage, shed, and basement — places where we hide our unused and unwanted stuff that we are famous for saying, “I will go through it all later.” Spring is the best time to go through it and get rid of what you don’t want and don’t need.
Garages and sheds often store great pieces of scrap metal, including:
- Vehicle rims
- Rakes and shovels
- Old windows with metal between the panes of glass (muntins)
- Aluminum siding
Basements house lots of valuable scrap, including:
- Copper wires
- Copper pipes/plumbing
- Washers and dryers
Don’t forget about outside!
The front yard, back yard, and driveway often need a once over in the spring,
and that’s the perfect time to get rid of items you no longer want or need,
or that have reached their end of life.
Outdoor items may include:
- Metal screen doors
- Benches (metal legs or frames)
- Decorative garden pieces
- Old cars and farm equipment
Getting rid of your unwanted items will free up space, and give you a sense of freedom in your newly decluttered space.
As Oprah says, “Cleaning house — both literally and as a metaphor for life — is a great way to hit the Refresh button.”
