Our Customers

Commercial Clients – we cater to commercial businesses having periodic recycling needs resulting from equipment upgrades, inventory write-downs, plant reconfiguring, office renovations, or the annual clean-up. We accept old equipment, obsolete parts, maintenance scrap, office furniture, display racks, warehouse racking, or anything metal you are purging from your business. If necessary, Central Metal Recycling can assist you with the logistics for these once or twice a year events. You can be assured all items will be cared for in an environmentally conscious manner while we maximize the value of your materials and provide you with prompt payment.

Residential Clients – local, environmentally conscious, home owners who are remodeling their homes, replacing appliances, or completing the annual garage, basement, or attic spring cleaning also find a number of items that can be recycled at Central Metal Recycling. Our friendly staff will guide you through the process while helping you segregate your items to insure you receive the most money for your scrap materials.

Full-Time Scrappers – the classic Chicago alley metal collectors who provide an invaluable service to our communities and municipalities. These hard-working folks prevent tons of recyclable materials from filling our landfills.
