Fort Worth, TX Scrap Metal Prices

Fort Worth is a city named after the first US Navy Ship – USS Fort Worth, located on the northern-central regions of Texas in Tarrant County. It is the 5th most populous city in the state – and 13th in the U.S. - with a population close to 1 million residents. The city lies on the west of Dallas, northwest of Arlington, and southwest of Plano.

The city, also known as Cowtown, is a modern city that still embraces the western heritage and traditional architecture. It grew as the center of Texas Longhorn Cattle trade, and it’s popular for its cowboy culture. If you are planning to visit the city, you should consider visiting its historic museums such as the Kimbell Art Museum and the world’s only twice-daily cattle drive on Stockyards National Historic District.

Aside from culture, Fort Worth is one of the fastest growing city in the U.S., and it is a good place to do business and career. The economy here relies on mainly manufacturing, healthcare, and retail trade. Mining, agriculture, construction, and real estate are also active, which makes it a good place to establish a scrap metal business.

The city is home to numerous scrap yards – which offer good services and prices for scrap metal. If you are starting out, ensure that you carry your ID to the yard. You can also take time to familiarize yourself with the scrap metal laws in Texas because they are a bit strict.
