Scrap metal is any material made of metal. Some examples of scrap metal are:
Hot water heaters
Pots and pans
Not accepted at transfer sites or landfill, take to McGovern Metals or the Steel Recyclers
Reusables should be taken to Heartwood Resources for resale.
Scrap metal is easy to recycle. Simply remove as much wood and plastic as you can. If the item is 80% metal you are good to go. Scrap metal is accepted all over the community of Douglas County. Do not leave this material at thrift stores. It costs them labor and time to get rid of.
All Douglas County Transfer Stations. Note: Large Appliances can only be accepted at Roseburg and Reedsport. Fees apply. No large auto parts may be accepted. Material taken to these recyclers may be sold to them by the pound. Fees do apply for materials requiring preparatory work (refrigerant, propane tanks with valves, etc..)
