Selling Scrap in Arizona

With over 7 million people, Arizona has the great opportunity to make money selling scrap metal. Since Arizona has some the strictest laws surrounding selling scrap metal, I will go through everything that you need to know before discussing the best scrap yards in the state. Scrap yards are required to keep lots of records of anyone who they buy scrap from. Photo ID of the seller must be the kept on record as well as a fingerprint of the right index finger.

The transaction must be recorded on video and the photos of the materials brought must be taken. When purchasing a scrap car, the scrap yard must keep record of the license plate number and a description of the vehicle. Law enforcement has the right the to force scrap yards to hold any material for upto 15 days. Finally the scrap yards are required to pay their customers via non transferable check that is sent to the address on the customers state ID. Now that we have gone through the laws of buying and selling scrap metal in arizona, we can discuss the places to sell depending on where you are in the state. Phoenix is the most populated city in Arizona, with over 1.5 million residence. The state capital many scrap yards offering great options for those that wish to sell scrap metal. The three scrap yards that we recommend in Phoenix are: Phoenix Metal Trading, Mega Metals Inc and SA Recycling. Arizonas second biggest city, Tucson which is located in the south of the state, offers many great opportunity for selling scrap metal. The three that we recommend in Tucson are: Tucson Iron & Metal, Desert Metals Recycling and CFS Metals Recycling LLC. Normally we do not recommend avoiding particular scrap yards but there are two in Tucson that we heard nothing but bad thing about. These are SA Recycling and The Scrap Yard. Avoid these if possible.
