illinois scrap metalFacts & Information – Illinois, USA

The 5th most populated state of Illinois can be found in the midwest of the United States. Found in 1818 as the 21st state of the Union, Illinois is only ranked as the 25th largest state in the country and has a population of over 12.8 million. Often said to be a smaller representation of the US, the northeast city of Chicago is an industrial hub, with small cities, and agricultural rural sections to the north and south. With access to the Atlantic Ocean through the St. Lawrence Seaway to the north and the Mississippi River accessible via the Illinois River, Illinois has a vast range of transportation going through the state.  The Chicago airport O’Hare International is one of the busiest airports in the world. The capitol of Illinois is Springfield, however the largest city and metro area belongs to Chicago. Illinois is a busy state for scrap metal recycling and there is not shortage of scrap yards across the region to help you recycle your metals. The iScrap App can help you locate the scrap yards in the area including metro areas like Chicago and you can check current scrap prices too. Premium Yards on the site have the chance to post their scrap metal prices they are currently paying for. Some yards may choose not to list their prices but instead the materials they accept at their yard. If that is the case we suggest calling the yard before you visit to be sure you know what the price is. iScrap App users also have the ability to report their own scrap prices they’ve received for their yard.
