Action Metals is clean, organized, and easy to use.

We are committed to your satisfaction.  With a clean receiving area, four receiving scales, loading docks, truck scale access, and a helpful staff, the process of selling your scrap metal is made easy.  You’ll be able to get unloaded, paid and be quickly on your way.

We’re accessible and transparent.

Our  20,000 square foot facility is centrally located just north of O’Hare Airport so it’s easily accessible  to anyone in the Chicago and suburbs area.  When you get here all your material is weighed right in front of you and you’ll be impressed with our accurate scale weights, you get paid for every pound of your scrap.  Tare weights are calibrated to the pound; and each scale reader faces the customer for a clear view of your material’s weight. To better serve our customers, we keep our yard clean and organized. You’ll find our prices to be highly competitive every day.  Action Metals is proud to be OSHA compliant. Use our Contact Us  page to tell us what we’re doing right or what we can improve upon.
