We have worked with many of our customers to help their facility reduce their carbon footprint and become "greener" by educating them on recycling options and tailoring specific programs to them.  We also work closely with Sebastian County Solid Waste District and the City of Fort Smith Landfill to improve both recycling and waste management in our area.

Davis Iron and Metal has led the way in combating scrap metal theft by implementing a system involving identification scanners, digital cameras, biometric signatures and fingerprint scanning years before being required by the state.  We work closely with state and local law enforcement to catch thieves- including illegal scrap recyclers.  We also work side by side with city, county and state officials to help shape regulations regarding recycling in Arkansas.

Electronic equiptment makes our world comfortable and productive but when it wears out it becomes part of the fastest growing componemt of our solid waste stream.  We partner with the Sebastian county solid waste district to provide an environmentally safe method of disposal

In an effort to keep more recyclables out of our landfill, in late 2011 Davis Iron & Metal began a program to to bring glass recycling to our area.  We accept all colors of glass.  The recycled glass is then used to make new glass bottles and fiberglass insulation.  For every truckload of glass we recycle, Owens Corning donates new insulation to be used by non profit organizations in our community.

What We Buy

Iron and steel scrap, also referred to as ferrous scrap, comes from end of life products (old or obsolete scrap) as well as scrap generated from the manufacturing process (new or prime scrap).  Obsolete ferrous scrap is recovered from automobiles, steel structures, household appliances, railroad tracks, ships, farm equipment and other sources. Prime scrap, which is generated from the manufacturing process, accounts for approximatly half of the ferrous scrap supply.
Nonferrous metals, including aluminum, copper, lead, nickel, tin and others, are among the few materials that do not degrade or lose their chemical or physical properties in the recycling process. As a result, nonferrous metals have the capacity to be recycled an infinite number of times. While in terms of volume, nonferrous scrap makes up less than 10% of the total quantity of material recycled in the United States, by value ISRI estimates that nonferrous metal scrap - including precious metal scrap - accounted for more than half of the total U.S. scrap market. What's important to remember is that unlike waste, scrap is processed into tradable and highly valued commodities that manufactures use as raw material inputs to make new products.  One of the major sources of the scrap supply comes from a wide range of used products including end- of -life vehicles, old newspapers, used appliances, demolished buildings, consumer goods and much more
