You can Get Weighed and Get Paid at Smith Iron & Metal so quickly and easily, you’ve likely never had the chance to pause and take a look around Richmond’s oldest scrapyard. Hey, we get it – you’re busy, we’re busy, and you’re eager to get paid for your scrap! However, with massive scrap piles and heavy machinery, our yard has some cool sights.
Over the decades we’ve called Richmond home, the general layout of our scrapyard has remained mostly the same. We’ve added some cool things over time (like the scrap shredder and the Smith Iron & Metal train), but the layout works – and it works well! What you see below is an up-to-date map of our scrap yard, with arrows indicating the flow of traffic for both our private and commercial scrappers.
Without further ado… check out the the birds eye view of Smith Iron & Metal!
Entrance and Exit: located at 3000 Bells road!
Train: an awesome, Smith Iron & Metal branded train car
