Best Scrap Yards in Tucson

We investigated some of the scrap yards in this area, and we can recommend several. A good scrap yard within the central parts of the city, especially if you live around 690, Tucson Iron & Metal (located on 36th Street). That would be an ideal place to take your scrap metal. 

Good scrap yards on the city's northern parts include Can-It Recycling and Demolition, located on Plum Avenue and Arizona U-Pull Save Auto Parts in Camino De La Tierra.

If you are looking for good cash for gold places around Tanque Verde Shopping Center, we recommend Precious Metal Refinery. They also have another facility on Oracle Road in River Village.
