  • Appliances – We recycle metal household appliances such as washers, dryers, and stoves. Whether you’re a homeowner, contractor, or a junk removal specialist, we will purchase as few or as many as you bring in.
  • Demolition & Industrial Scrap Metal – Demolition projects create a lot of metal scraps, such as iron rods, steel beams, and other industrial scrap metal. Our digital scale delivers accurate pricing on all scrap metals.
  • Wiring – Copper wiring has a high electrical conductivity, which means it’s found in most of your household and commercial wiring. We recycle the copper wiring by stripping the insulation and creating copper ore.
  • Batteries – We recycle car batteries by crushing the battery and neutralizing the acid. If you’re unsure what to do with your old, used car battery, recycle it with us!
  • Radiators – Radiators are another part of automobiles that are frequently recycled at our facility. Even if the radiator no longer works, we will purchase it from you.
  • Ferrous Metals – We accept all of your loose iron and steel metal. Ferrous metals are revered for their incredible strength and are used for industrial purposes such as construction.
  • Non Ferrous Metals – Non-ferrous metals such as aluminum, copper, lead, zinc, and tin are malleable and rust-resistant. They are used to create a wide variety of applications, such as wiring, electronics, and piping.

Our Metal Recycling Process

Our metal recycling center is more than just a business. We believe it helps improve the environment with reliable metal recycling services. Our recycling process starts with scrap metal. Using precise, digital scales, we determine its total weight to the pound. Once the metal has been weighted, we begin sorting and processing it. Once the metal items have been processed, we can then strip, chop, or cut down the metal to its raw form. The metal is then smelted and poured into molds to be reused.
