    Best way to find out is to call your local scrap yard.
    People may laugh at me, but that's ok. I laugh all the way to the bank.

    The weight bench I had as a kid was concrete weights in plastic. make sure they are the metal weights. If they are, they may be worth more to someone as weights than scrap.

    Around here I get 8 bucks per hundred for steel. Others may get up to 12.

    We are getting $12 per 100lb for regular steel.
    You would on;y be talking an avg of $24 scrapping, SO I would suggest you trying to sell it outright to someone first. A decent Weight bench and weights should get more than that.
    Good Luck!!
