1-800-GOT-SCRAP Extends Offer To Give Away Free ITunes To Those Using Its Service Through Month’s End

“Heavy Metal” has been resonating with music fans so far this month as evidenced by the popularity of an iTunes giveaway by a company dedicated to “extreme recycling.”  1-800-GOT-SCRAP will continue to give away free music to those taking advantage of its home pick-up service through the end of August.  Those with large-scale metal objects like old dishwashers, refrigerators, weight sets, etc. are encouraged to call 1-800-GOT-SCRAP and the items will be removed at no cost to the homeowner and those making the call will receive an iTunes gift card valued at anywhere between $5 and $25.  (Items less than 100 lbs could be subject to a freight charge.)

“Music lovers are really enjoying the free iTunes giveaway, which is helping 1-800-GOT-SCRAP pick up and recycle the metal scrap laying around their garages,” said Cristi Rossi, executive vice president of SA Recycling, parent company of 1-800-GOT-SCRAP.

Up until now, old appliances and other metal items have been dumped in city landfills across the country, which has greatly increased our carbon footprint. 1-800-GOT-SCRAP ensures that these materials are re-purposed thus preserving natural resources and reducing greenhouse gases. Typically, 1-800-GOT-SCRAP picks up such items from your house for $50.  Those looking to earn cash may drop off their discarded items at an affiliated recycling center for cash.  The items are then shredded, sorted into various pure metals (e.g., steel, aluminum, copper, iron) and shipped overseas to be re-purposed into new appliances and automobiles.

SA Recycling operates 47 recycling centers in 3 states and expects that 1-800-GOT-SCRAP will expand beyond California and Las Vegas in the coming months.  For a list of affiliated recycling centers, visit  Also, “like” them on Facebook at
