Fast, Professional & Dependable.

Rather than letting your automotive, rail and mining scrap deteriorate in a landfill, we clean up, recycle and pay upfront cash for your scrap metal parts.

Recycling automotive scrap metal

Recycling end-of-life vehicles (ELV) and automotive scrap is the process of dismantling and disposing of vehicles in an environmentally responsible manner.

When a vehicle is recycled, it goes through several stages. First, any hazardous materials and liquids, such as oil, gasoline, and coolant, are removed and properly disposed of. Then, the vehicle is dismantled, and its parts are sorted for reuse or recycling. For example, the engine, transmission, and other components can be reconditioned or sold as used parts, while the body and frame can be melted down and turned into new metal products.

Recycling your vehicle is important for several reasons:

  • Reducing the amount of waste that goes to landfills, helps conserve natural resources
  • Preventing pollution by properly disposing of hazardous materials and keeping them out of the environment
  • The process of recycling metals requires less energy than producing new metals from raw materials, resulting in significant energy savings

Mining & rail metal cleanup

By recycling scrap metal, mining and railroad operations can reduce the amount of waste they produce. This, in turn benefits the industry and the environment by reducing the need to produce virgin material.

Reducing environmental impacts also improves brand reputation. Companies that position themselves as responsible industry leaders prioritize sustainability.

Properly managing waste with a focus on compliance and regulations demonstrates to stakeholders, employees and clients that they are committed to improving long-term viability. 

Recycling scrap metal from the mining and railroad industry has numerous benefits, including cost savings, reduced environmental impact, improved reputation, conservation of resources, and compliance with regulations.

Municipal dump metal cleanup

Municipalities play an important role in the environmental and social responsibilities of landfill waste management practices. Compliance and regulations, safety and proper disposal methods play an essential role in environmental conservation and economic growth.

If not properly recycled, some scrap metal becomes a significant environmental hazard. Metals and components such as battery acid and coolants pose a risk to soil, water, and air quality when left to decay in landfills. By participating in cleaner, safer, and more sustainable practices, municipalities not only reduce the amount of waste in landfills but also support green initiatives and jobs in this sector.

By incorporating recycling into your operations, you can help to create a more sustainable future for your business and the planet.
