North Star Metal Salvage began operations at its Powell street location in 1950. Originally, the company started out by buying old marine scrap. Over the years, North Star Metal Salvage grew and evolved into a full service, non-ferrous metal recycling facility.
In January of 2001, the company was renamed North Star Metal Recycling to bring attention to the benefits of the metal recycling process. Since this time, North Star has been steadily growing due in part to our loyal customer base.
North Star is owned by Phil Watson, Harold Folk and Adam Folk. There are approximately 10 employees at North Star Recycling and that number continues to rise each year.
