About Yard

From our beginnings as a single scrap yard in the 1950s to our position as one of the leading independent recycling operations in the Southeastern United States, Columbus Recycling has focused on providing the most dependable and principled service possible.  Our commitment to “always do the right thing”, is supported by key operational strategies that benefit both buyers and sellers:

Stable and Reliable Company

  • You can depend on Columbus Recycling

Efficient Operations

  • Our unique combination of scale, experience and capability enables us to analyze, transport, and process scrap in an efficient and cost effective manner.  
  • We have locations in close proximity to numerous highway, rail and barge transportation alternatives.
  • As a partnership focused organization, we share these efficiency savings with our customers.

 Investment in the Future

  • By consistently reinvesting in growth we are able to provide the most advanced equipment for collecting and processing scrap.
  • Columbus Recycling makes it possible to reach increasingly precise specifications and standards.  
  • You are the key priority of Columbus Recycling 

Columbus Recycling is one of the largest independent metal recyclers in the Southeastern United States, with locations throughout Mississippi and Tennessee. Our strategic access to all modes of transportation (truck, rail and barge) and proximity to the region’s key scrap material consumers provides a cost advantage that supports consistently competitive pricing.


At Columbus Recycling, we value our ability to make a positive economic and environmental impact on behalf of our customers, consumers and communities. 

There are several important questions we continually ask ourselves:

How can we increase the value we provide for our customers and consumers?

  • Our growth has been fueled by entrepreneurial innovation that saves our customers time and trouble, or makes them more money or increasingly productive.  We strive to create a culture where every employee is inspired to contribute ideas that support this goal.

How can we improve the future of our communities?

  • We recognize that as companies grow, they are increasingly tied to their local communities, and their communities are increasingly dependent on them.  We therefore:
    • Provide excellent compensation/benefits to our employees, including fully paid medical insurance
    • Seek diversity in our employee base 
    • Provide corporate sponsorship of community organizations and events 
    • Encourage individual participation in community organizations and events

How can we make our work sites safer for our customers and employees?

  • Nothing takes precedence over our determination to get employees home safely at the end of each day.  We are diligent about complying with OSHA standards at all sites, and maintain ongoing safety training programs for all job functions. 

How can we contribute more to environmental health?

  • The recycling industry plays a critical role in the overall environmental health of our society.  Simply put, the better we do our job, the less damage is done to our planet.  To that end, we have an active Environmental Compliance initiative at each of our facilities, which includes training, regular inspection and continuous improvement programs.  We are proud of our record of regulatory compliance and spotless EPA record.  

The foundation of everything we do at Columbus Recycling is a simple concept that guides our actions:  “Always do the right thing”.
