The scrap metal yard is the site we process and clean metals so they can be recycled and made into new products.  We use a variety of techniques at our metal recycling center including, torching, shearing, baling, and hand sorting metal to put it together in truckload lots to resell to mills and foundries.

When you arrive pull into the parking lot and register if you are looking to purchase metal.  If you are looking to sell metal you can pull right onto the scale on the side of our building to be directed to either the small scale for car loads of metal or back in the yard for truck and trailer loads of metals.

Sahd Metal Recycling is open for buying and selling Monday-Friday 8am-4pm and 24 hours at recycleyourmetal.com and on Facebook Marketplace.

Our scrap metal yard will accept any metal except vehicles and freon bearing appliances, but the best things to scrap for money are copper, aluminum, brass and stainless steel in addition to steel of all grades.
