Identification → Boards → Grade 3 : Low Grade

Boards of this grade can frequently be found in TV, VCR, DVD, or stereo, or office equipment such as copiers, printers, monitors, and port replicators.


Characterized by many heavy components such as transformers and inductors, these boards fall into the lowest grade. They are easily identified by these components and the fact that many of these boards are brown to beige in color, unlike the higher value grades.


Boards with aluminum coolers, fans, batteries, metal frames, and other heavy low value attachments, reduce the value of the scrap. The price at which you can sell your scrap will increase if you remove these components and send them separately.

Boards with CPUs and chips often have aluminum or copper heat sinks and fans attached, which can be easily removed. Aluminum and Copper at greater quantities can also be compensated.

Batteries should also be removed. Batteries are often thin disks which can be easily removed with a screw driver. Batteries can contain poisonous materials, especially in older scrap, and must be disposed of properly.

After these components are removed, the boards can be sorted into the appropriate grades.


A minimum of 250 lbs is needed.
