Landscaping isn’t the first business you think of when you consider who has scrap metal that could be sold and recycled. But as many of these professionals can tell you, you’d be surprised at what they remove from an average job!
Insulated copper wire, the excess coiled underground, has to be removed when digging. Old cast iron or chain link fencing being replaced must go. Cast iron pipes, steel well covers, and all kinds of scrap can be found even on residential jobs. Commercial jobs can involve pulling appliances off of lots where they’ve been dumped, and who knows what you’ll find moving earth on a commercial site. Often, your contract with your customer states that you are responsible for removing the plant and earth debris, and the scrap metals. Much of that metal is recyclable, and Mann Metals will buy it from you.
Don’t pay your own hauling bill to throw money away or leave it in a customer’s dumpster or roll-off! Larger amounts of old fencing, pipes and insulated wiring can be picked up by us in one of our containers. Collect even the smaller scraps in a bin in your truck or van, and then bring it on down to Mann Metals to sell. This economy means no one wants to waste a possible revenue source. Sell your scrap to Mann Metals weekly, monthly or quarterly. Every dollar counts!
For small amounts of scrap metal, loading the scrap into a pick-up and bringing it to Mann Metals is easy, and the dollars recovered for “trash” add up. For large amounts of scrap metals, contact us about providing containers and pick-up service. If our blog articles have been useful to you, please let us know when you bring in your scrap metal. Thanks!
Electricians produce scrap wiring and metals no matter how carefully they spec their jobs or measure materials. It’s a cost of doing business. Plus, there’s scrap when you pull old wiring and boxes out to replace them. Most homeowners and businesses want you to get rid of the mess for them, too. Much of the scrap is copper or aluminum, and a little comes from electronics. Almost all of it is recyclable, and Mann Metals will buy it from you.
Don’t throw money away or leave it in a customer’s dumpster or roll-off! You’ve paid good money for that scrap wire, and your sweat and muscles have pulled that old wiring out. Rather than toss it in the trash, collect even the smaller scraps in a bin in your truck or van, and then bring it on down to Mann Metals to sell. No small business owner can afford to throw money away. Recover some of the materials costs and sell the scrap to Mann Metals weekly, monthly or quarterly. In this economy, every cent you save is a cent you’ve got in your pocket!

Owners and managers of auto repair and body shops know how much scrap metal their shops can generate. Much of the scrap is ferrous metal, some non-ferrous, and a little comes from electronics and wiring. Almost all of it is recyclable, and Mann Metals will buy it from you.
Well, most shops sell their scrap metals these days because of the savings. No business manager or owner can afford to throw money away month after month. If you’re tossing sellable scrap metal in a rolloff or other container to be hauled away as trash, you’re throwing away dollars and cents. Not just in the amount Mann Metals will pay for the scrap, but in that monthly hauling invoice. Reduce waste, and you reduce your overhead…AND get paid for the waste, a double win!

The interest in “green” construction has risen sharply over the last 10 years, with more and more consumers looking for energy-efficiency in commercial and residential building systems and appliances, renewable resources in their building products, and even contractors with eco-friendly policies and records. Selling your ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metal from demolition is easy with Mann Metals, and doing so can help you tap into the environmentally conscious market!
Unless you specialize in new builds, part of your revenue comes from demolition as well as construction. To the average consumer, demolition carries connotations of waste and destruction, but when you make reclaiming and recycling metals a part of your demo plan, you create the opportunity to market your corporate responsibility, “green” policies, and environmental respect. Selling the scrap metals from the demo phase of a job can return a little cash to your pocket, and attract a new customer base. It’s a double benefit!
Assure your customers that your company is going greener and partnering with Mann Metals to keep old wiring, plumbing, fixtures, lighting, and metal structural components OUT of local landfills. Boast your total tonnage recycled, square footage of landfill saved, and about your environmental consciousness.
Contact Mann Metals for more information about containers and pick-up service for larger amounts of scrap metals, and for lists of what we purchase. If our blog articles have been useful to you, please let us know when you bring in your scrap metal. Thanks!
Mann Metals knows that by selling scrap metal for recycling, you can advertise to customers that you’re more eco-friendly, more green. This target audience of “green” consumers may be especially hard to reach if your industry isn’t known for eco-consciousness! Auto-body shops, contractors, plumbers, and other businesses want a greener, cleaner image to attract those eco-friendly customers.

Put a simple card on your window or counter: “We Recycle” or “Going Greener: Ask us how!” Use recycled paper or cardstock if possible…but a simple note to customers that you make the effort to recycle is meaningful.
Have a website or blog? Send emails or newsletters? Add an article about your efforts to go greener, and make sure you mention all your efforts: recycling scrap metal; using less paper, energy and water; and purchasing greener products. We’re all reducing, reusing, and recycling. Tell customers about it!
When advertising, simply add the phrase “We recycle.” It’s short, to the point, and is meaningful to consumers. Add the same simple phrase to the bottom of your estimate, invoices, business cards, and promotional materials. It informs and promotes loyalty.
Mann Metals is proud to be part of your efforts to go greener and save money. Please contact us to arrange pick-up of bulk scrap metal, or with any questions.

Remember when phones just made calls? With all the extra things phones do these days, and the constant innovations, many of us are replacing our old phones with new. Whether you’re talking home phone, office phone, or cell phones…there’s always a newer model that does even more for you or your business.
What are you planning to do with your obsolete phone, phone systems, or cell phones?
Mann Metals will buy your old phones for the scrap metals inside, and recycle them. So save your old phones, phone systems, even the wire! Box them up and bring them on down to us, and we’ll pay you for them. Don’t just chuck them in the dumpster! That’s the same as throwing cash away.
Worried about privacy? If your phone is still working, take a moment to delete contacts, stored caller ID information, and speed dial numbers. With cell phones, use the “delete all” function for both texts, numbers, and calls. DO make sure your information is transferred to your new phone BEFORE you delete from your old one! Now your information is gone, and you’re ready to recycle.
If you have a large phone system with many units and wiring to sell, contact Mann Metals to arrange pick up. Also, please contact us with any questions you have.
