When you think of a metal scrapyard, what usually comes to mind? Of course, normally, one wouldn’t think of beauty or magnificence. But remember that once upon a time, the scrap metal in these shops used to be car parts, appliances, or gadgets, which have simply outgrown their use.
People rarely think about what happens to their stuff once they are thrown out. But most of the time, especially in the case of electronics, they are recycled or kept as spare in metal or repair shops. If parts are still usable, they are given new life in another form. But if they are damaged beyond repair, that’s when they are either recycled or taken to the landfill.
Scrapyards are an interesting place. If you’re lucky, you can see a metal part being used again. Don’t be taken aback by the rust and junk – check out these photos from a metal scrapyard to see their unique beauty up close.
