Scrap metal is one of the most common recyclable items that you can find in every household. It is also one of those items that can pose the threat of injury as a simple scrap pile most likely contains sharp edges and numerous debris.
People would usually wait until they are able to reach a substantial amount of scrap pile before deciding for its disposal. As a result, these old scrap metals easily cause the cluttering of a yard or garage where they occupy too much space and develop rust.
