Demolition Recycling and Dumpsters

Why do you need a recycling dumpster for demolition?

Demolition costs can really add up. Did you know the average cost of a tear down is almost $15,000? Rent a recycling dumpster for your home or business to recoup some those demolition costs. Don’t throw cash in the trash!

What materials can you recycle?

Metro Recycling recycles ferrous metals such as steel and non-ferrous metals such as aluminum, aluminum alloys, copper, brass, and lead. For example, stainless kitchen equipment, old pipes, copper wires, clean sheet steel such as shelving, and aluminum siding are all recyclable materials. Not sure if you have the right materials?

Don’t mix your dumpster materials

Metro Recycling doesn’t offer co-mingle dumpsters, dumpsters where multiple types of recycling materials are mixed together. However, we will extract large items (like appliances) from your dumpster. We’ll weigh the large items and pay you accordingly. Then, you’re ready to process the rest of your single material dumpster and get money for your metal.
