Rio Rancho, NM Scrap Metal Prices

Rio Rancho is a city bordering Albuquerque on the north. It is the third largest city in the state – behind Las Cruces, with approximately 100k inhabitants. The city is also the largest city in the Sandoval County.

Also referred to as ‘The City of Vision’, Rio Rancho offers its residents and visitors plenty of amenities, scenic desert landscapes, Sandia Mountain Views, and endless economic opportunities.

The economy here is diverse, and a good place to start a business with retail, healthcare, and education being the three major industries. Besides that, agriculture, mining, construction, and manufacturing are also part of the economy, which is why selling scrap metal here is a good side hustle.

Rio Rancho doesn’t have many scrap yards, and most of the ones we could located don’t have good reputation. So, it would really help if you could ask around for recommendations and read reviews to identify good places for your needs and budget. You can also call the facility ahead to know how they operate and what they require to buy materials from you.
