Alaska Scrap Metal Prices - USA

Selling Scrap in Alaska

The USA's most northern state Alaska offers great options for selling scrap metal, provided you have access to one the states three major cities. Juneau, Alaska's state capital has a rich mining history, being named after the first prospector to settle there, Joe Juneau.

There are two scrap yards in Juneau that we recommend. These are D & S Recycling Skookum Sales and Recycling.

The Largest city in Alaska, Anchorage and its surrounding area is home to more than half of Alaska's residence. That is over 400,000 people. This means that there is great opportunity for selling getting your hands on scrap metal. If you are planning on selling your scrap in the Anchorage area then you will have plenty of options. The three scrap yards that we recommend are WestRock Anchorage Recycling Center, Northwest Auto Parts and Alaska metal Corp. Not the only good options but three of the best that Anchorage has to offer.

Finally we have Fairbanks. The largest non-coastal city in Alaska Fairbanks and its metropolitan area has a population of over 100,000. The two scrap yards that we recommend in Fairbanks are C & R Metal Recycling and K & K Recycling. Both fantastic options for anyone looking to sell scrap near Fairbanks.

It is important to remember the laws for selling scrap metal in each state. Alaska follows federal laws in most cases. When buying cars and other vehicles scrap yards are required to look up the owner in the National Motor Vehicle and Title Information System. Keep this in mind if recycling a car for a friend or family member. You will need to be able to prove that you have their permission to scrap that vehicle.
