Payment Guidelines

Customers can be paid in cash or by check. Purchases must meet all state or local scrap ordinances and a cash card is required to receive cash. If you do not have a cash card, we can help you apply for one for future visits.

Certain items are regulated materials and therefore have additional requirements you must meet in order to recycle them, including being 18 years or older, showing a Texas Driver’s License or I.D. and registering with us as a seller of material.

The City of Corpus Christi regulates the recycling of air conditioning parts. We cannot purchase Central A/C unit parts from any person unless you have a state-issued professional HVAC license, a refrigeration technician registration or an original copy of a receipt or bill of sale showing person has replaced an A/C unit OR has purchased the coils; window units are acceptable if 100% identifiable.

Please contact our office if you have any questions about selling your scrap metal.
