Santa Clarita doesn’t have many scrap yards; however, we found that most of the ones available do offer great service and great prices for scrap metal.

Besides that, knowing scrap law metals before going to the scrap yard is important as the laws here are strict. One law in particular is that scrap yard owners are required to pay via cheque.
