Georgia Scrap Metal Prices - USA

Selling Scrap in Georgia

In Georgia there is always a need for scrap metal on an ongoing basis. A lot of manufacturing and blue collar trades require metal and this is bound to stay that way. Scrapping is therefore a profitable side-hustle in Georgia.

Georgia has fairly standard scrap metal laws. Firstly there is a time restriction on the hours that a scrap yard can operate. Scrap yards cannot legally buy anything between the hours of 7 pm to 7 am. This is an attempt to stop the theft of copper wire and fencing at night. Scrap yards are required to keep records of the vehicles that are used to drop off any goods. They are still permitted to purchase from people without a vehicle. All purchased materials will be recorded via a photograph with timestamp and description. The scrap yard will also need to take a photo of the seller and their identification. The seller will also need to sign a form stating that they have not got a conviction for metal theft. This form must be kept on record by the scrap yard.

There are a lot of cities where you can bring excess scrap metal. Let's start with Atlanta, the largest city in Georgia and its capital city. Found in the counties of Fulton and DeKalb, Atlanta has a population of 2 million. Our recommended scrap yards there are: Newell Recycling, Extreme Cash for Junk and Schnitzer Southeast.

Augusta is Georgia's second largest city by population with brilliant scrap selling opportunities. It can be found in Richmond County. Our favorite Augusta scrap yards are: Dukes Auto Service, Augusta Steel and Metal.

Savannah is Georgia's oldest city and cultural hub and can be found in Chatham county. The recommended scrap yards for this region are: Jarrells Top Dollar Recycling, Southern Metals Recycling and Newell Recycling.
