About Above Ground Pool Disposal
That's right. You can make money with an above ground pool disposal or more particularly, after dismantling it. This is due to the fact that most metal pools contain materials which can easily be sold as scrap. Even if it's not that large, it's generally worth it to put some cash in your pocket.
There are several reasons for taking an above ground pool down, but regardless of why you are doing it, the concern is how to do it. When you take the pool apart, it is important to do it in the proper order so that nothing, including yourself is at risk. If you have the original boxes that all of the parts came in, it is a big help in the dismantling process, but by no means is it essential. --Hunker.com
