About Company

Columbus Recycling has been providing dependable service in the scrap recycling business for over half a century.  Founded as a single scrap yard in 1956 by Henry Weiss, the company has become one of the Southeast’s leading independent metal recyclers, with five locations in Mississippi and Tennessee:

  • Columbus Recycling Columbus - Columbus, MS
  • Columbus Recycling Iuka - Iuka, MS
  • Columbus Recycling Meridian - Meridian, MS
  • Columbus Recycling Chattanooga - Chattanooga, TN
  • Columbus Recycling Memphis - Memphis, TN

We purchase scrap material from industrial manufacturers that range in size from sole proprietorships to Fortune 50 companies. We also purchase scrap material from individuals and small-haul recyclers.   We then process the scrap – which includes cleaning, sorting, compacting, baling, shearing and bundling – and sell the material to foundries, mills and steel processing facilities where it is recycled into new products.   Our process helps the environment and supports domestic manufacturing and production.   

In 2014, the company changed its name from Columbus Scrap Materials to Columbus Recycling to reflect our expanding presence in the Southeast, growing environmental consciousness and alignment with global sustainability objectives. 

The company was named U.S. Scrap Company of the Year for 2014 & 2015 by AMM.

Under the leadership of Gregg Rader – the son-in-law of our founder – Columbus Recycling was named the 2014 & 2015 Scrap Company of the Year by American Metal Market.
