The Cutting Edge of Scrap Processing...
Every pound of scrap that crosses our scales enters the recycling chain and it begins
right here on site. Mills and foundries pay premiums for sorted, more compact product,
denser material, and a variety of other formats. To meet this demand, General
Recycling continues to invest in better equipment, increased storage
facilities, and cleaner technology.
Our equipment consists of:
Hoe - mounted Hydraulic Shears
Turn large metal items into small recyclable pieces in minutes.
We have our own 85-ton rail cars with direct access to the mill.
Old vehicles are given proper disposal and the tires are also recycled.
All gauge material is baled into manageable bales/logs for more cost-effective transport.
Unloading your vehicle is a snap with our Scrapmaster precision grapple.
Speed is the objective here. Our powerful magnets clear your load in seconds.
In addition to our scrap specific machinery, General Recycling
employs a separate fleet of heavy-duty Loaders, Bobcats, and Fork-lifts to keep
our operation running smoothly each and every day.
