Lean RecyclingSM

Lean RecyclingSM reduces the complexity of traditional scrap metal recycling programs. We take a holistic view of our partners’ operations to identify opportunities to keep materials flowing efficiently.

Zero Landfill

We can help you achieve a Zero Landfill goal through our Lean RecyclingSM approach—and saving millions of pounds of metal and other materials from landfills is just one aspect of how we deliver.

Smart Containers

Our Smart Containers are designed to reduce your carbon footprint by eliminating unnecessary pickup trips.

Environmental Responsibility

We collect, ship, process, and destroy our materials to ensure 100% compliance and the utmost care for our environment. We are well-versed in HAZMAT and EPA regulations, so you can rest assured your materials are handled properly.

As a team, we try to make Shapiro the best place to work for and the best place to work with. We're a 115 year old company that looks at everything as though we were a startup. New ideas and processes are happening all the time and they are all driven by our commitment to our customers and each other. Bo Howard Trader
