Who Buys Scrap Metal?

Date

Hi everyone, I’m Mike Sahd with Sahd Metal Recycling teaching you a little bit about some of the questions we get here at Sahd’s! One of the questions we get is who buys scrap metal? The answer is actually pretty easy.

Any recycling center, scrap yard, or junk yard will pay you for scrap metal. So, whether you’re a business owner, a general public cleaning out a garag or shem or farmer and you have some old farm equipment sitting around and you want to get paid for it. If you’re a business owner that produces scrap, and you’re not sure where to get rid of it, that’s something we can help you with!

You can see behind me, we have some piles of scrap sitting around and it was all bought by various vendors and the general public. It doesn’t matter what you’re doing, we are more than happy to try to help you!

 So, the next time you have some scrap metal and you’re wondering where to get rid of it, give us a call or check out our website for updated pricing and we will try to help you anyway we can! We appreciate it and we look forward to seeing you!
