Best Scrap Yards in Chico

If you are around Chapmantown, Chico Scrap Metal on East 20th Street should be a good place to go. Although they don’t open on weekends, their services, and prices are excellent.

Those around East Park Avenue can go to the Pick-n-Pull auto parts store. Their facility is open every day from 9am to 6pm, and they will take all types of scrap metal, including junk cars. For Autowrecking services, Fairview Auto Wrecking is highly recommended. They are on 2437 Park Avenue and the prices are great.
