Brisbane Scrap Metal Prices - Australia

Selling Scrap in Brisbane

Brisbane is the 3rd biggest city in Australia in terms of population and the capital of the state of Queensland. It has a population of around 3.8 million and that means there's always a huge demand for construction materials and scrap metal.

Brisbane is a very "global" city with a diverse international economy. It's industries are mining, banking, insurance, transportation, information technology, real estate and food so you see it's very varied. Scrap metal selling is therefore mainly to feed the demand for construction and that remains steady as always. Brisbane will keep on growing and renewing and the demand for scrap metals will stay.

A few key things to know before you head off to the scrap yard is that are certain laws in Queensland that scrap yards need to follow. But these pertain to waste management more than to scrap in this state. This is different from Victoria and New South Wales. So before you head out to a scrap yard it makes sense to call ahead and see what they need as it may vary from place to place. Bringing ID is always a good idea of course.

Lastly we investigated the scrap yards in Brisbane. Beware that not all scrap yards are equally reliable in this region and if you have time to ask around or check reviews then we definitely advise that.

Some good options for car wreckers are North Brisbane Wreckers and Car Wreckers Brisbane - Cash For Cars. Reliable scrap yards with decent to good customer service are Action Metal Recyclers (Coopers Plains), Raw Metal Corp and Metal Biz Rocklea.

There are also a few really good cash for gold places such as Brisbane Gold Buyers and Brisbane Gold Company. These have lots of rave reviews and fair prices.
