Elgin Recycling is a family owned business that has been in business for over 30 years. What once began as a silver smelting business in 1978 progressed into a small, non-ferrous recycling center in the 80's. Today we have expanded to a multi-facility operation, processing all metals and materials including ferrous metals, exotic alloys, paper, electronics and plastic. Using Niton analysis, we can quickly and accurately determine the alloy of your metal. We also provide brokering services, asset management, de-installation, light demolition and warehousing.
We have grown from our original recycling center to five full service scrap metal facilities in Elgin, Palatine, Crystal Lake and our two new locations in Gilberts.
We service all companies, large and small, including industrial, commercial, contractors, jobsites and residential accounts. We accept walk-in business at all of our locations. Our goal is to provide our customers with supreme prices and fast, dependable service.
“At Elgin Recycling we pledge to provide distinctive quality and unparalleled customer service as we strive to gain the respect and trust of our customers, suppliers and vendors, while maintaining a clear commitment to the environment.”
