About Yard

Founded in 1909, Davis Trading was one of the first recyclers of scrap metal in North America. Recycling back in the early 1900’s was noticeably different from what it has become today in that most items were refurbished rather than recycled. The most common items being refurbished at the time were rags, bottles, bags and horsehair. As metals became more prevalent in society the business shifted from ‘refurbish’ to ‘recycle’ in the form of scrap metals from building projects and military use. The company was considered a processor of metal which meant they would sort the various metals that were purchased, package them for shipping, then sell each commodity (Aluminum, Brass, Copper, etc.) in truck loads to the various domestic foundries or via break‐bulk ships destined for Asia.

It was a rather simple business in that incoming material was weighed by the pound and paid according to the intrinsic value of each metal type. The business model would remain in tact as future generations entered the business. Today, the company remains 100% family owned and is now being operated by the fourth generation of the Davis family. During the past 100 years a great deal of strategic planning was required in order to adapt to the variety of recyclable materials and the continuously improving recycling rates throughout the country. As volumes increased the company sought additional land, added processing equipment, and hired employees to keep up with production. As one of the oldest metal recycling companies in North America, the company has built a reputation of trust in the industry. This reputation has translated into long‐lasting relationships with suppliers and vendors that have helped support the company throughout its history.
