Presorting saves time.

To make your visit as smooth as possible, it’s best to sort and separate your scrap by material category before you get here.

Choose a receiving spot.

We care about your vehicle.  The entire receiving area is paved and clean. We sweep the area with a large magnet throughout the day to keep nails from damaging your tires.  Four accurate receiving scales keep the process moving quickly and smoothly.  One of our dedicated staff will gladly help you unload and answer any questions you may have. 

Unloading is organized.

Action Metals is a full service scrap yard. We will assist in unloading any type of car or truck.  For your convenience, forklifts are available at the truck docks.  Large trucks can weigh in on our truck scale before dumping their loads.  If you are delivering a large load that needs to be unloaded at a truck dock or a dump load, please deliver before 2:30 PM.

Pick ups.

Our pickups are limited to businesses with forklifts.  Large loads will be picked up in a 48’ or 53’ van trailer at dock height. Smaller loads of scrap metal can be picked up in straight trucks.

For pickup, all material must be boxed and palletized, or otherwise prepared for loading. We will also provide and/or replace pallets, Gaylord boxes and 55 gallon drums if you need them.

If you’d like us to bring a roll-off to your site, we can drop one at your site and pick it up the same day. 

Our minimum pick up weight of non-ferrous metal is 3000 pounds.
