Topeka, KS Scrap Metal Prices

Topeka is the fifth largest city in Kansas with a population of around 126k residents. It is the capital of the state, and lies a few miles from Kansas Metropolitan Area. Other cities close to it are Wichita to the south and Olathe to its east.

Nicknamed as the Golden City, Topeka is an excellent place for a weekend gateway, thanks to its vast prairies, rolling hills, and natural beauty. Visitors have an opportunity to visit the Kansas State Capitol, enjoy lunch at one of the city’s restaurants, visit museums, zoos, or take a walk at one of the parks in the city.

The city also has a stable and growing economy that is diverse. It has a vibrant blue-collar economy, with manufacturing and construction being the most significant contributors. Hence, if you want to start selling scrap metal, you’ll make good money on the side as these materials are always on demand.

We did an investigation on the scrap yards the city offers and we noticed that the city doesn’t have many places you can take your materials.  You also need to call your preferred scrap yard before going to know when they open and when they close their facilities.
