Services & Metals We Buy

Our Services

As a buyer and processor of recycled metals, MRC considers the customer first.

We provide a clean yard, modern facility, easy mobile/pedestrian access and fast unloading of your materials. Our philosophy is that “quick service and a quick payout make a satisfied customer.”

We are constantly improving our equipment to better serve you. Our yard is stocked with the latest material handling equipment to help us to unload and handle all types of materials with ease and efficiency.

If you are coming to MRC for the first time, simply enter our driveway and park at the Scrap-Drop Off area and you will be greeted by one of our staff members who will ask you what type of metals you have. We will then sort and weigh your metal and escort you to the pay-window, where you will receive a receipt and cash for your scrap.

In addition to our scrap drop-off facility, we offer roll-off containers for the larger accumulation of scrap metals. Whether it is at a construction job site, demolition work, or a metal fabricator, we can service your needs. Please contact us directly for more details on this service.

Most importantly, we provide transparency and competitive prices. All of our scales are certified by the state and showcase digital read-outs so that you can plainly view the weight of your material load.  Our truck scale has a capacity of 120,000 lbs. and our aluminum can and non-ferrous platform scales have 5,000 lbs. capacities. We also offer our up-to-date scrap prices through a matrix on our website, which you can check daily. Bring your scrap to our recycling center today, and think of us as your local scrap metal solution!
