Sioux Falls, SD Scrap Metal Prices

Sioux Falls is the largest city in South Dakota state with a population close to 200, 000 residents. It lies on the southeast parts of the state in Minnehaha County on the banks of Big Sioux River.

The city has become a unique city, with the most notable attraction being the Falls Park. People come from all over to watch its waters flow on pinkish rocks. The city is also an entertainment and cultural hub, with numerous parks with exotic flowers and architecture.

Sioux Falls grew as an agricultural area, but the economy has become diversified and reliant on the service industry. Manufacturing, agriculture, mining of minerals and construction sectors continue being a significant part of the economy - which creates a market for scrap metal.

If you want to sell scrap metal, expect to make some good money since there’s a high demand for these materials. The scrap metal laws for South Dakota are also not as strict, so there’s a huge chance that transacting with any scrap yards will be easy as long as you carry your ID.

Best Scrap Yards in Sioux Falls

If you are on the western side of the city, you can go to Zabel Steel on 5501 West 19th Street. You can also go to Novak Sanitary Service on 5000 West 18th Street. We don’t recommend ScrapMart on South Lyons Avenue since they don’t have good reviews on Google.
