Selling Scrap in New Mexico

New to the scrap metal Industry? I am sure that you are excited to start making money buying and selling scrap metal. Before you learn how to where to get good quality scrap or how to get the very best prices it is hugely important to know the laws that govern your region. Like many states in the US New Mexico is a great place to be selling scrap but it has its own unique laws that you need to know before heading out to the scrap yard for the first.

We have studied the scrap metal laws in New Mexico and summarized the most important things that you need to be aware of before you leave the house. Most importantly, bring ID! It sounds obvious but I hear every week from a handful of people who got turned away because they didn't have ID. Every state in US requires ID, New Mexico is no different. The scrap yard will keep a transaction record for at least 3 years. They will need to keep a copy of you ID, a description of you car, the license plate number and photograph of the material. So make sure you are comfortable with all this being taken. These laws have played a huge role in combating the buying and selling of scrap metal.

Now that you know the basics let's take a look at the best scrap yards that New Mexico has to offer. Starting with New Mexico's largest city, Albuquerque, our research has found that customers had the best experience at Albuquerque Metal Recycling and Pueblo Metals Recycling. Both offer great service and prices. Next, let's look at Las Cruces, our research found the best scrap yard to be Action Auto Parts.
