You’ll also find many Fortune 500 companies in the city, and key sectors such as healthcare, telecommunication, IT, tourism, retail, and transportation.

We investigated the scrap metal dealers in Stamford, and found that the southern part of the city has many scrap metal dealers you can take your materials to. The market here is vibrant, thanks to an active blue collar economy and a high population that’s always looking for these materials.

As you go to the scrap yard, you can call ahead to know what time they are open and the type of scrap metal they accept to avoid wasting time and energy.

Best Scrap Yards in Stamford

We reviewed some of the scrap yards in the area and some of the best options we found are below.

Vulcan Scrap metal is a junk yard in 60 Taff Avenue that open at 8 a.m. and close at 4.30 p.m.  They buy plenty of scrap, and offer reasonable prices for each metal. If you are driving along Canal Street, Rubino Brothers is a recommended place. The staff is friendly, and the services here are efficient.

Other places we can recommend are Atlas Metals on Research Drive, Katrina Mygatt Recycling Center on Magee Avenue, and Junk Solutions on 110 Lenox Avenue. Avoid City Carting & Recycling as people complain about them overcharging and buying scrap metal at very low prices.

If you’d like to trade gold, or any other valuables, places we liked are NY Gold and Diamond Exchange on Spring Street and Verma Diamond Buyers on East Main Street #700R.
