Scrapping in Winter
January 28, 2020

Happy new year, scrappers! We’re thrilled to have had such a great 2019, and we’re looking forward to being your #1 recycling center in 2020. We know there are plenty of places throughout Richmond you can bring your scrap metal… but we think we’re the best. Here’s why!


Smith Iron & Metal has been fairly paying the good folks of RVA for their scrap metal since before the US entered World War 2. Our staff has 100s of years of combined experience, and you just won’t find anyone in the Richmond area with a history as rich as ours. We constantly reinvest this experience into our business, working hard every year to provide our customers and clients with a faster and easier way to Get Weighed and Get Paid!

Honest, Fair Pricing

Our process is great (check out this blog to learn more about it!) However, we think the reason we’ve been in business for so long is because of how we treat our customers – and that’s with respect and honesty.  Our reputation speaks for itself.

We let you know up front (or if you call ahead) what we’re paying per pound for your scrap, so there aren’t any surprises after we’ve unloaded. Then we’ll pay you on the spot. It’s really that simple.

Contact Us to Get Weighed and Get Paid!

We hope 2019 treated you well, and 2020 treats you even better. We’re celebrating out 80th year in business this year, and we hope you come in at some point to celebrate (get paid!) with us. If you have any questions, please either give us a call at 804-271-1239, contact us online, or message us on Facebook. We’d be happy to provide you with up-to-date pricing info or help you out in any other way. We look forward to speaking to you!

Happy New Year, Richmond!
