aboutWe're cash-buyers of all types of scrap metal! Due to NJ State laws a valid government issued ID must be presented for any scrap metal purchases over $50.00 For pick-ups of large quantities of scrap metal, the team at Beacon Scrap Iron & Metal Company, offers 20 to 40 cubic yard dumpster service, 50 to 80 cubic yard dump trailer service, flatbed and lowboy service. For your convenience you can use our container request form to request a dumpster or trailer to your site.

For junk car removal we offer local towing services. All scrap vehicles must have title to be purchased. We have invested countless dollars on analytical equipment in both facilities to perform immediate on-site testing of hard to identify metals and alloys.

For large projects we offer Plant dismantling and demolition. We have mobile material handlers and mobile shearing and baling equipment to process large quantities of material on your site, saving in unnecessary freight costs. For smaller interior demolition projects we can gladly recommend one of our fully insured contractors to get the job done at a cost that can’t be beat.

All of our scales are NTEP certified coupled with digital read out scale-indicators visible to customers at all times! Between our state of the art equipment and our several years of experience means you’ll always receive the highest possible return on your scrap metal. We're known to provide the highest prices for scrap in our area, and we want you to reap the benefits. We'll buy any kind of scrap metal for cash on the spot, and we've been doing just that since 1971...and counting! For your protection, we're the “Home of honest weights and dependable service.” If you have a large quantity of scrap metal, it's our pleasure to pick it up! Our company puts customers like you first, by giving the best prices, and offering services that other scrap yards can’t match.
