In all likelihood, the insulation will have to be removed from the furnace and water heater before the junkyard will take it - means a bit of sawzall work on your part.

Sounds like you have about 700-1000 pounds or so - that means about $55-100 in scrap value today - depending on how far it is to the metal recycler's yard, might be cheaper to just have them hauled to the dump, depending on dump fees in your area. Might be easier to find a friend to haul them with you, and you buy him lunch or a pizza and beer for his trouble, depending on availability during scrapyard or dump operating hours.

When you contact haulers, mention furnaces and water heaters and that he will have to have a way to winch or hoist them on board his truck or trailer.
