Recycling with the Metro Group is simple. Bring your materials to either location. For small loads, pull directly up to the loading dock and our friendly support staff will weigh your materials and give you a payment ticket. For large loads pull onto the scale located adjacent to the office. After your weight has been recorded you will be instructed where to take your material. Take your purchase ticket back to the office and they will pay you.
Unfortunately we do not resell any items, including car parts, that have been brought in by other patrons.

We do offer a container service for clients that are working on clean-up projects and for those that produce a significant amount of material on a frequent basis. To get more information about what options are available, visit the Containers section of our commercial page. Feel free to contact us for additional information or to book containers.

Metro Group Inc. can help you clean your farm or warehouse (only for large cleanups with multiple tons of material). Our On-Site Cleanup professionals can come in, clean up your site and haul the metal away for you.  Leaving you more time to get your work done.  We typically pay for the metals we pick-up/haul off. Pricing depends on tonnage, preparations need to remove from the site, freight, non-metallic attachments and labor costs. Visit Our On-Site Cleanups Page >>

Recycling has many benefits. It is a great way to secure the availability of our natural resources for future generations. Recycling also provides cleaner air and water by safely removing potentially hazardous materials and keeping them out of our landfills. By bringing your materials to Metro Group, you get money back in your own wallet instead of having to pay landfill fees.
The material that we receive is shipped to local, national, and international mills. The materials are melted down and then used to create new products.

First, alert the proper authorities. Every Metro Group customer is required to show photo i.d. and a valid phone number in order for us to purchase material. In case of a reported theft, this information is turned over to authorities as evidence. The sooner we know about it the better chance we have of catching it if it is brought to us. Contact us with a description of the material.
