We do more than just recycle scrap metal. We make pick up and delivery easy, too. You’re sure to find a service that suits your needs when you call All American Recycling:

On-Site Construction & Demolition Scrap Recycling

We’ll bring the equipment. You bring the metal construction debris. All American Recycling is happy to supply can trailers, lugger boxes, gaylord boxes, hoppers, and more to hold your scrap metal. When your container is full, simply call for pickup. Recycling construction scrap has never been so easy.

Having a container on-site to collect scrap is the most convenient approach to handle it. The sort of junk you have and the amount you intend to generate can assist you and your scrap recycler figure out what kind of container or containers you’ll need, as well as how frequently you’ll need them carried and changed throughout the project.

Live Load For Construction & Demolition

Small construction sites with limited space may benefit from our live load option. When you order live load services, we’ll send a truck right to your site for immediate use. Load it and watch it drive away.

Scrap that has already been prepared to go directly to a mill is the most valuable. The fewer stops your material must make before it can be sold to mills, the more costs you can save.

Large pieces of metal must be broken down into smaller pieces. A shear attached on an excavator can rip through metal easily, whereas a mobile shredder generates a finer product.

All American Recycling can deploy our mobile equipment to your demolition site to prepare and process your construction and demolition scrap on the spot.

Construction and Demolition Scrap Metal Pick-Up

When you have large loads of scrap metal that need to go away quickly, trust All American Recycling to get the job done. Our scrap metal pick-up service uses roll-off containers, open-top gondolas, and van trailers to safely contain large loads of debris where it won’t interfere with traffic at your job site. When you’re ready to see it all go, we’ll take it away.

All American Recycling understands how much a snafu in the scrap flow can ruin your day. We have our own fleet of trucks, drivers, and mechanics, so we can provide dependable service throughout the life of your project.

Though nearly 75 percent could be recycled, only around 30 percent are. America’s landfills are filling up at surprising rates with items such as glass, plastic, textiles, clothing, and even metals — all materials that could just as easily be recycled.
