Scrap metal can be recycled at home, but it must be smaller than 30 inches and weigh less than 30 pounds. All metal pieces must fit into the cart completely so the lid will close. Any remaining pieces that are not metal or are a few materials mixed together should go into your regular garbage.
If the item is really large, you can place it at the curb and call the hauler in advance to pick it up for an extra fee. Call your hauler for exact pricing. You can also self-haul to a recycling depot that accepts the particular item. Some restrictions do apply, especially for items containing a coolant like refrigerators or oil. Contact the recycler or Beaverton’s Recycling Program 503-526-2665 for more information.
