Spring cleaning? Recycle these garden and garage items.

Getting a jumpstart on spring cleaning? Clean out your garage and make money back on your old lawn and garden items when you recycle at Metro Recycling!

Recycling lawn and garden items

Say goodbye to snowy weather by recycling steel snow fence posts and old snow blowers. Prepare to whip your lawn into shape when warm weather finally arrives, and recycle your old lawn mowers, lawn care carts, leaf blowers, and weed eaters.


Welcome spring with new lawn and garden gear! Recycle your old metal lawn ornaments, bird feeders, watering cans, flower boxes, garden posts, and lawn chairs. Retire your old metal fire pits and grills, and get paid to recycle at Metro Recycling.

Recycling items from your garage

Don’t throw money in the trash—bring your scrap steel items to Metro Recycling and earn money back. Recycle old metal shelves, artificial Christmas trees, workout weights, vacuums, home improvement tools, metal ladders, and folding chairs.


Recycle your lawn and garden items at one of Metro Recycling’s three locations: Valparaiso, Griffith, and Blue Island, Illinois.
