GREEN ZONE METAL RECYCLING

WEIGHING & SORTING
We have the capacity to weigh and unload both large and small loads of metals. We prefer your loads be sorted into the different types of metals when you arrive. However, if you should need assistance with this, we will be happy to help.
*If you have a local business that generates metal waste, or have a large metal cleanup project, call us today about getting one of our rolloff containers delivered to your site.
Please be sure to have your drivers license (or any govt issued photo ID) with you for each trip you make to our site. In order to receive payment for your metals, we are required by state law to obtain a copy of your ID.
