You can report this as "Other Income" and it will end up on Line 21 of the return.

To do this, go to Wages and Income area, 

then to the last category, "Less Common Income" 

go to bottom one, "Miscellaneous Income, 1099A, 1099C, 

then next screen select bottom one again"Other Reportable Income" 

and type in Scrap sales and the $5.
