Do you have some scrap metal laying around? How about soda cans or empty canned goods? All of these items are money waiting to be added to your fund. Just gather it up and take it to your local scrap yard. Check with your local scrapyard to see what the going rate is. Ours is currently paying $0.34 per pound of cans.
If you have multiple scrap yards in your area, be sure to call each one. They might compete with each other to bring you in more money.
Check out what SavEars had to say:
“I cashed in 3 garbage bags of cans yesterday and added $12.00 to our fund!!”
“We recently got a new stove and took the old one (it was 17 years old and not worth trying to resell) to the scrap metal place. Got $35 for it.”
