FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
Iowa Metal Recycling is conveniently located across the street from the Evansdale City Hall, between Lafayette and Dubuque Road in Evansdale, Iowa.

No, you do not need an appointment! Everyone is welcome at Iowa Metal Recycling regardless of whether you are bringing materials in from a business or just cleaning out the garage. Come in any time and we will take care of you!
DO I NEED TO HAVE MY MATERIALS SORTED BEFORE I COME?

WHAT DO I DO WHEN I GET THERE?
When you arrive at our location, check in with the office. One of our team members will direct you based on the materials you have to recycle.
WHEN WILL I BE PAID FOR MY MATERIAL?
Immediately! We offer what we call the "Weight & Pay" system, meaning our customers, both large and small, are paid immediately upon turning in their materials.
DO YOU POST CURRENT PRICES ON YOUR WEBSITE?
Unfortunately, metal markets, like the stock market, constantly change. In addition, there are numerous factors that impact the value of materials (attachments, insulation, metal mixtures, etc.), which make it difficult to quote. For these reasons, we do not post price lists. We encourage you to call our office at 319-233-5238 for current rates on any material.
DO YOU HAVE CONTAINERS AVAILABLE FOR BUSINESSES THAT DISPOSE OF RECYCLABLE MATERIAL FREQUENTLY?
Yes! We have several container options available to fit your demands and will switch out your container as needed. And, our container service is FREE in the Cedar Valley!
No pickup, delivery, or monthly fees on our containers! Call or email us to schedule a delivery!
CAN I HAVE A CONTAINER DELIVERED IF I AM NOT WITH A BUSINESS?
Absolutely! Containers can be delivered to anyone in the Cedar Valley that has a considerable amount of metal to recycle. Some frequent uses include property cleanups, home renovations, and scrap metal fundraisers.
WILL I GET PAID FOR THE MATERIAL I PUT IN A CONTAINER?
