Recycling is a concept that a lot of people are familiar with. Metal is one of the earliest materials recycled, melted and reused for new purposes. It is a highly flexible material. Right now, over 45% of the world’s steel and 40% of the world’s copper production come from recycled sources. This is why selling scrap for cash is a profitable business. Many people forget that they have metals in the various appliances and items they dump into the garbage bin. Steel casings, brass fixtures, and copper wiring can be found in electronic gadgets and household items that end up in the trash heap. Old refrigerators and air conditioners are also prime sources of scrap metal. People are often either ignorant of or simply uninterested in the presence of these metals. They need to learn more about the scrap metal industry to be able to earn profit from unused metal items.

Any business or undertaking can always use some extra income. The federal government’s Digital Education Revolution programme, for example, aims to provide schools with updated computers on a 1:1 computer to student ratio. This means that a substantial number of PCs would need to be junked annually in keeping with the program’s objectives. Lack of funding, however, has caused some hitches in the program, preventing some schools (particularly in Victoria) to replace soon-to-be obsoleted models with new ones. Exchanging computer scrap for cash, with the help of companies like Global Resources, may provide some of the answers to financial dilemmas like this.
