Best Scrap Yards in Daly City

We investigated some of the scrap yards in the area, and some we found to be reputable are the following.

Republic Services on 1680 Edgeworth Avenue is a good place to go but the problem with them is that they don’t scrap metal above 10 pounds. However, they are efficient, and their prices are good.

If you have time, you can drive to Sign Hill, and go to Zarc Recycling. They are a chain metal dealer that take all type of scrap metal. People like it because of great service.

Good cash for gold places in the city are Gold Center on 8 Serramonte Center and Gold Silver & Platinum Buyer.
