Scrap Metal Recycling Facility serving Kent, Auburn, & all of Western Washington

Our scrap metal recycling center is open to the general public and commercial accounts six days per week. Binford Metals buys scrap metal and offer top prices for all recycled scrap metals from aluminum to zinc.

Binford Metals has scaling capability for as little as 1 pound, and an 80 foot truck scale with a capacity of 120,000 pounds for those big loads. Our onsite electro magnet can easily unload large loads of scrap steel, and forklifts with rotating forks can dump your barrels and bins.
