Lake County Scrap Metal recycling center was founded in 1981. We are a full service recycling center and scrap metal yard for industry and the public.  We provide all types of containers for industry, and we provide a prompt trucking service: straight truck, roll offs, and trailers of all kinds, enclosed, open top, and flatbed.

The public can see we have a safe and blacktopped area for servicing their recycling needs.  Our staff is friendly and quickly helps them to unload their recyclables. Payment is immediate, and always in cash, except when a check is required.

We recycle all metals and paper and cardboard. Check on the Services tab to see a more complete list of what we recycle.
