scrap yards in Houston

I have just relocated to Houston TX. Does anyone out there know where
any good scrapyards are at in the Houston area? I am in NW Harris
County by the way.

Try the Gulf Freeway (I 45) during rush hour.

Pretty funny. I value my life too much to run that gauntlet during rush hour. While visiting Houston a couple of years ago I saw a Saturn spin out after being clipped from behind. It just happened to be on the Gulf Freeway.

NW Houston is fairly wide. You could be in Spring or in Humble.
Go to, look in the Yellow pages, save your home (or work) address. Search for "scrap metal". There are likely some locations in east Houston around US 90, but there could be some toward Livingston on US 59 N as well.
Good luck and don't get caught in the traffic.

Tried sending you an E-mail, address doesn't work.
Arshram Scrap. Bout 1/2 mile north of 529 (Spencer Road), close to the intersection of 529 and 290. If you are coming from the NW towards Sam Houston, exit at 529, turn right on 529, go about a mile west, to the first stoplight (a filling station on the N side (right side). turn right (North) and go about .25 mile. Road runs right into Arshram. You can see the scrap yard from 290. You exit BEFORE Sam Houston toll road.
