RECYCLING

Turn Your Recycling into Cash.

For 60+ years, Slesnick Iron & Metal, Co., Inc. has been the area’s leading recycling center helping homeowners, businesses and industries reduce landfill waste while earning cash for their recycling.

We offer competitive pricing, attentive service and an ATM in our lobby that turns your purchase ticket into cash. Our friendly staff helps customers unload their recycled materials. Our experienced operators and commercial material handling equipment can offload heavy or high volume materials in minutes. We provide and deliver containers to store recycled materials on customers’ sites and pick them up when they are full or no longer needed. We are a member of the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI), a nonprofit organization that represents thousands of members in the scrap recycling industry and provides guidance on industry best practices, safe and healthy work environments, and regulatory issues.
