The scrap yards in Utah carry on the state motto of industry, which allows the scrappers to do that as well. With the iScrap App, yards are able to stay ahead of the industry by posting prices for their metals, or the users can report prices. The customers that have received payments for metals can report what prices they’ve received for materials like copper, aluminum, and brass.
Some popular industries throughout the state include petroleum, refining, coal mining, and tourism with 5 national parks. Many of the industries here can directly affect and relate back to the metal industry with it’s production and processing of materials. Many minerals like zinc, copper, gold, lead, and silver are mined throughout the state. Mining was a large part of the economy when the state was first founded and continues to be.
