Known as the Capital of the United States, Washington DC or “DC” was created when both Maryland and Virginia each donated land to form the federal district in 1790. The Potomac River forms the District’s border with Virginia and has two major tributaries: the Anacostia River and Rock Creek. You’ll find a wide selection of scrap metal recycling locations throughout this area. You can check prices daily and report your scrap metal transaction prices to help your fellow scrappers in the spirit of bipartisanship. The District is home to the three branches of US Government, Home to the US President and White House and is the host city to 176 foreign embassies.
Many international organizations, trade unions, lobbying groups and other associations headquarter here to be close to congress, and other governmental leaders. This metro area has a population of 5.8 million and is the 7th largest metro area in the U.S. The federal government provides 1/3 of all jobs in the Districts with support services, education, finance, healthcare and tourism accounting for the balance.
