Lincoln, NE Scrap Metal Prices

Lincoln is the second largest city in Nebraska, with a population of about 300, 000 residents. It is the capital city of the state, and the county seat of Lancaster County. You can find the city on the southeast side of the state, a few miles away from Omaha.

The city is popular for being a college town, since it’s the home to University of Nebraska. Life here is vibrant, affordable, and would be a good place for families, young professionals, and retirees.

As an economic and cultural center, Lincoln can be a good place to start any type of business. The economy here is diverse, and blue-collar sectors such as manufacturing, construction, and real estate are huge here. Therefore, this should be a good place to start selling scrap metal.

The city has plenty of scrap yards, located in different parts of Lincoln. Most are reputable, but we noticed that it's difficult to find a location that opens on Sunday.
