About Company

Clark Iron and Metal provides container services to industrial accounts. We understand that the scrap recycling business is a service business. Our suppliers can depend on us to make timely container swaps to keep their production flowing. Containers are available in various sizes from 10 to 40 cubic yards. Semi-trailers are also available for larger scrap metals.

What started as a family’s means of survival has become a family business that has endured and grown for fifty years and three generations. Charles H. Clark, Jr. traveled the area during the Great Depression trying to buy anything he could find that could be resold for a profit. He bought paper, rags, bones, herbs, walnuts, furs, hides and metals. He learned to find markets for items most people considered to be trash. He began recycling before the word “recycling” was known in most households.

After the depression was over, he ventured into the poultry business and formed Farmers Produce Company. He specialized in the retail sale of chickens, turkeys and eggs, but he could never give up his roots and continued to buy items to be recycled. His son, “Charlie III” worked for him as a child. He loved the recycling side of the business but despised dressing chickens and turkeys. In 1962, Charles H. Clark, Jr. decided to close Farmer’s Produce Company and open Clark Iron & Metal Company at a new location on Hillard Drive where it still operates today.

Clark Iron and Metal originally recycled most anything that could be recycled. Over time the company has narrowed its focus to recycling only metals. Today, the business is operated by Chuck Clark who tookover the business in 1987 after the death of his father, Charles H. Clark, III. The business continues to grow and a 4th Clark generation is now learning the ropes. Over 2,500 tons of metals are processed and sold each month. The metals are sold to mills and foundries all over the U.S.
and overseas. Whether you are selling one pound of aluminum cans or a thousand tons of industrial stampings, you can depend on Clark Iron and Metal for competitive prices and accurate weights. Family businesses don't last for 50 years in a competitive market without integrity. The Clark family takes pride in its reputation for integrity and will work hard each day to preserve that reputation. "Safely or Not at All" Clark Iron and Metal has adopted this motto from our trade association, The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries. We will operate our business in a manner that will protect the safety of our employees, suppliers, customers and the environment. We have adopted training programs and processing procedures to provide safety in every area of our
operations. We will conduct business "safely, or not at all".

Clark Iron and Metal views proper sorting as the first and most important step in the recycling process. The second critical step is to process the materials so that they can be handled and melted in an efficient manner. Our customers can rely on us to process our metals to meet their specifications.

Clark Iron and Metal ships by truck or rail (located on the CSXT). Please contact Chuck Clark if you have any interest in buying metals in truck or rail car load quantities. Listed below are metals we process on a regular basis
