West Valley City, UT Scrap Metal Prices

West Valley City is the second most populous city in Utah with a population of 150, 000 residents. The city lies on the western side of the state’s capital – Salt Lake City and northwest of West Jordan and Provo.

The city – which grew as an agricultural center- is popular for its thriving cultural scene. It has many attractions such as the Stonebridge Golf Course, Utah Cultural Celebration Center, Rocky Mountains Raceways, and Valley Fair Mall, among many others.

West Valley City’s largest industry is manufacturing. The economy provides a diverse atmosphere that accommodates many sectors. Mining, construction, and agriculture are also active, which makes it a good place to sell scrap metal.

Although the city doesn’t have many scrap yards, we reviewed the scrap metal prices here and they are good. You can build a business around selling these metals on a part time basis since they are profitable. Before starting the business, however, getting to know what the scrap metal laws in Utah stipulate can go a long way into establishing a good foundation for it.
