The goal of recycling scrap metal is processing the metal so that it can be used again for other products. In order for this to be accomplished efficiently, certain items cannot be processed through the same plant. To ensure we provide the highest quality recycling services and can offer top dollar for your scrap, there are certain items we do not accept.

If you have questions about our recycling process, or have items you need to recycle, stop by our convenient location. No appointment is needed to have your items recycled.

Items we do not accept include:

• Televisions, Microwaves, or Computer Monitors

• Explosive or Combustible Solids or Liquids

   Un-drained Fluids such as: Water, Gas, Diesel, Oil, and Propane

• Light Ballasts or Transformers Containing PCB’s

• Gas or Pressurized Cylinders not Satisfactorily Opened.

• Firearms (Except by prior arrangement with the appropriate agency).

• Materials containing CFC’s, PCB Capacitors, Mercury Switches, and any

   Pyrotechnic Devices
