Our Customized Lean RecyclingSM Program

Our process begins with an in-depth, no obligation analysis of your current recycling program. We examine every part of your plant, searching for untapped opportunities to recycle and earn you more revenue. We use the latest technology to identify and process your manufacturing byproducts.

  • Personalized Service – Our sales representative and facility managers work closely with your production personnel to develop the right program for you facility. We provide periodic site visits and regular follow up with your scrap team.
  • Proper Scrap Segregation — Our cost-effective and efficient system uses clearly marked, color-coded bins at the point of production to divide your scrap for easier sorting and analysis.
  • Employee Training – We provide your employees with training to emphasize the importance of keeping scrap metal segregated to increase its value in the market place.
  • Environmental Responsibility – Our Lean RecyclingSM approach emphasizes a Zero Landfill policy.

Transparent Pricing

We provide pound for pound accountability, giving you top dollar for your scrap metal. Our pricing model uses domestic and global metal indexes — the American Metal Market, London Metal Exchange, and Comex — to ensure the integrity and transparency of every transaction.
