At USM Recycling, located conveniently in Alsip, IL, we purchase scrap metal directly from the general public, other recycling dealers, & waste haulers. If you’ve got a pickup load you’re ready to drop off, we’re here to help with convenient hours and competitive rates. Many of our regular customers include contractors from job sites, homeowners clearing out the garage or basement and small businesses who may have a bag or two of cans to drop off or a full truckload. We are in full compliance with the latest changes to state and local regulations for the proper disposal of all scrap metal recycling. Some of the many items we accept are aluminum cans, copper wire, brass, aluminum siding/gutters and steel. Please contact us with questions on appliances before bringing them in.
