You might think you’re doing it for your own good.
That’s how the scraper industry has been portrayed in the media lately, and while the practice may sound noble, it’s really a marketing ploy to attract customers and boost sales.
But scrapping isn’t without its downsides.
The cost of scrap metal can reach hundreds of dollars per pound, and it can be very dangerous to your health if you accidentally scrap a piece of metal.
In fact, scrap metal is considered a form of carcinogen.
The good news is there are other options you can use to reduce the impact of scrap, including composting and charcoal.
