If you are new to the scrap metal industry we will help by giving you the knowledge that you need to get started. Before you start collecting scrap metal to take to your local scrap yard first it is important to know the laws that control the buying and selling scrap metal in South Africa. Scrap metal theft has been a problem all over the world and South Africa is no different. To counter act this laws have been put in place requiring sellers to give receipts with some purchases. Knowing when you will and won't need a receipt is dependent on the local custom. The best way to learn about the laws in the local area is to go and speak to the people at your local scrap yard. They will be able to help you learn the laws you need to follow. The next things to think about are where you are going to find scrap metal and where you plan to sell it.

There are many strategies for finding scrap metal that can be really profitable. If you are new to it the best thing that you can do is first look around your own property to see if you have any scrap metal to sell. Next, speak to the people in your local community to see if they have anything that they want to get rid of. This is a great way to collect your first haul to take to the scrap yard and it will help out the community. After that aim to find scrap copper. It has a huge value and is easy to get your hands on. The most common place to find copper is in wires. Scrap wire is everywhere and is a great way to make money. Copper can also be found in old electronics alongside other valuable materials. Household appliances are another great way to make some money. People will often not be able to get rid of them themselves and will give them away if you can take them. Scraping them can fetch a reasonable price.

When you have scrap metal that you want to sell you need to find the place to sell it. Emfuleni has some great scrap yards but I recommend that you go to all the ones in your local area. Speak to the owner and try to build a friendship they will have all the best information on finding scrap metal in the local area.
