Description of Services:The facility brings in ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metal by truck, barge, or trailer directly from scrap generators. Generators consist of individual “peddlers”, as well as commercial accounts. The scrap includes auto hulks, old machinery, framing, white goods, and used and unusable steel scrap.

Once separated by type, non-ferrous material is stored in open rolloff containers on wooden pallets in a warehouse. A few open containers filled with scrap metal are also located on the ground near the barge loading and unloading area where material is stored before being shipped offsite. Wholly non-metallic materials are not brought to this site. The metal is torched to an acceptable size and transferred offsite. Aluminum cans are also accepted. The cans are dumped into the can baler, crushed, cubed, and stored in the non-ferrous warehouse, and then transferred offsite by truck.
