Before we talk about the scrap yards in New York State, we need to make sure that you are aware of one of the most parts of scrap metal industry. This is the laws that govern the buying and selling scrap metal in your region. In the US, each state has unique laws. It is important not assume that it will be the same in any two states. Regardless of if you are a beginner or someone with more experience in the scrap metal industry, understanding the basic laws is hugely important. We have been through the laws and regulations for New York so that we can provide you with a summary.
Let us begin with the most important piece of information that actually applies to every state in the US not just the New York, bring ID. It seems so obvious but the number of scrappers that I have spoken to who forgot to take ID their first time at the scrap yard. The scrap will then keep a copy of your ID on record with the details of the transaction for at least two years. This will include a description and photo of the material. They are also required to have a description of the vehicle that you arrive in with the license plate number.
Now that you are aware of the basics let us look at some of the best scrap yards in New York. The only place to start is New York City, the largest city in the whole of the US. From our research, we found five scrap yards that stand out as the best in the whole city. Scrap Yard NYC, Sims Metal Management, All city Recycling, Irving Rubber and Metal Co and CCC Scrap Metal and Copper. Any of these scrap yards offer amazing service and great prices. If you operate in or around Buffalo, the scrap yards that we recommend are Metalico Buffalo, Niagara Metals and R&R Salavage Inc.
