Metal Recycling

Put Your Metal Recycling to Work for You

Quincy Recycle has years of experience in metal recycling, moving hundreds of tons of metal recyclables through our facilities and to our trading partners each month. We help our customers find value in their scrap metal through thoughtful logistics and meaningful partnerships.

We make it easy to recycle your metal scrap with convenient and no-hassle mixed commodity trailer loads. Include your scrap metal with your paper and plastic recyclables; then we sort and organize it at our facilities and find the best outlet for the materials. We partner with metal refineries to allow us to more quickly process your metal recycling and get the scrap metal re-purposed for its next use.

A Metal Lifecycle:

Our custom solutions look a little bit different for each client. Here's an example of how we can reduce the costs and help save the planet at the same time.

Step One

A Beverage Processor has empty metal drums from sweetener as a byproduct of their manufacturing process, and partners with Quincy Recycle for a sustainable disposal solution.

Step Two

Quincy Recycle collects the metal drums as part of a mixed-commodity trailer, so the Beverage Processor does not need to sort items themselves. Quincy Recycle pays fair market value for the metal scrap.
