Ethics & the Environment

The scrap metal recycling industry is, by its very nature, a harsh environment to work in, involving potentially harmful materials and a variety of processes that can be difficult and costly. As a result, it’s easy to see how some companies may be tempted to cut corners and compromise when there’s an easier, less expensive way to do something.

Not us.

We believe deeply in doing the right thing. For more than one hundred years and over four generations, we have nurtured the core conviction that the right way is the only way for this family-owned and operated business to do business.

That’s why we make the following pledge to all our customers:

  • We will always do the right and honorable thing.
  • We will be honest and forthcoming in everything we do and say.
  • We will never make excuses.
  • We will always accept responsibility for our actions.
  • We will only work with companies who share our convictions.
  • We will never compromise our values, the environment, or the law.

Environmentally Responsible

In keeping with our convictions and our pledge, we take our environmental responsibilities seriously as well. Environmental concerns are also a key issue with our customers, which is why we are one of the few environmentally-responsible metal recycling facilities in the Northeast that has taken every necessary precaution to ensure that our actions and processes meet all applicable environmental guidelines, protecting not only the environment, but our customers as well.

In fact, we currently meet or exceed all state and federal environmental regulations and guidelines and are the first scrap metal facility in the area to make an environmental commitment of this scale.
