In our research, we found that Orlando is a good place to start a scrap metal selling side business. The city is an industrial and hi-tech hub, with manufacturing, aerospace, and agricultural technology forming part of the economic base. Scrap metals are always in huge demand in these industries; so, you can make a good income.

Orlando has many scrap yards. However, not all offer good services. So, it would help if you ask for recommendations or you can read the below reviews to know what to expect when you go to the scrap yard.

Best Scrap Yards in Orlando

Our favorite scrap metal dealers in the city that we are confident to recommend are Trademark Metals Recycling located on 317 West Kaley Street, Scrap Systems on 2600 West Washington Street, and JDM Orlando on 1343 West Michigan Street, especially if you are in the central parts of the city. Don’t go Mega Man Metals and Sonoco Recycling. The service here is not as good.

If you are looking for good places to take your scrap metal around the northern side of Orlando, 888 Recycling on Hanging Moss Road and Scrap Metal Trading on 3041 Forsyth Road are fantastic. Good places around Lockhart are GreenStar Auto Recyclers on 7111 Overland Road and PY Metals on 7904 North Orange Blossom Trail.

We also recommend the following cash for gold places: Diamond Banc on 9100 Conroy Windemere Road Suite 200, A Gold 2 Cash Exchange on North Semoran Boulevard, and A&M Pawn and Gold Buyers on 118 South Orange Blossom Trail.
