We currently have plans a new 30,000 square foot non-ferrous warehouse complete with new large two ram non-ferrous balers for increased volume capacity. The building will also include a new inside drive-thru area for customers to sell their non-ferrous scrap, including aluminum cans. Payment will be made electronically with photo i.d.
