Bonus: Scrap Metal Removal

Many businesses, like HVAC companies and plumbers regularly accumulate scrap metal. Metal can be recycled and scrap yards pay a small fee to “buy your metal.” It takes a lot of time and effort to make money off scrap metal. So, small businesses may need to consider time, effort and opportunity costs when making a decision about how to best recycle their metal waste. Junk removal companies will collect scrap metal for a fee (be wary though… not all of them will actually recycle it). Scrappers may not charge a fee for removal but may have more limited work scope and time availability.

Junk removal was not my first career choice. It was my best choice though. I used to run events for a living. I did that for almost 15 years until a global pandemic launched me into the junk removal business. I’m an expert in operations, team building & creating incredible customer experiences. And... I love helping people simplify their lives.
