Scrapyard in Chicago Suburb area

Anybody know of a good place to buy scrap steel near the western suburbs of Chicago? I just got a welder and am looking mostly for stuff to practice with so I don't mind mystery metal. Thanks

You might try a fab shop. If it is just for practice then the short and odd shapes they toss will be no problem. This should cost anywhere from cheap to free.

There's a place on Powcis Road in West Chicago that used to sell to the public, but I haven't been there in a few years and that was mostly for aluminum and a bit of brass. There are also a couple of places in Aurora, one on Broadway and the other on Sullivan.
