There are many great scrap yards within Kwazulu Natal, which is a sign of a healthy scrap metal industry. Before heading to the scrap yard it is very important to understand the laws that govern the buying and selling of scrap metal. Laws have become much stricter in the past decade to combat scrap metal theft. The best way to not be turned away from a scrap yard is to always take a form of identification and a receipt for your material when available. Scrap yards are the best places to get information about the local scrap trade. Find scrap yards near you and visit them. By talking the people who work there you will get the best local information.

Once you have an idea of the laws, you need to have a good idea of the best materials to sell. Scrap copper is one of the best to go after since it has a high value and is readily available in old wiring and kitchen equipment. Another great way to make some cash is by scrapping old cars. If you have the means to take a car away, people will often give you old cars if you get rid of it for them. Make sure that you have the paper work otherwise the scrap yard will not accept it from you. For the most up to date scrap metal price in Kwazulu Natal look below.
