    scrap

    ok, so i was unsure what would be the most appropriate translation for the following context:
    scrap
    scrap yard
    i mean construction scrap like lead and copper etc
    for example:
    im gonna take the scrap to the scrap yard

    Maybe мусор
    Я взял палку и нож, мелки и бумагу и направился к холмам.

    Are you talking about broken metallic stuff or something like that? That's "металлолом" (металл + лом (->ломать)).

    ok, i think ill go with металлолом.
    just for the record tho, im helping my uncle rennovate a house. all the lead that comes from the roof and copper from the pipes etc can be taken to a scrap yard where they weigh the scrap and then pay you for it.
    would металлолом still fit this context??

    Perfectly. Actually it's "Пункт приёма металлолома" or "пункт приёма металла".
