All Mervis Industries locations are safe, environmentally conscious recycling facilities, and are easily accessible to the local community.


At Mervis, our greatest success stories have grown out of the engagements with our large industrial partners and their one-of-a-kind needs. There is no challenge more motivating to our professional team than to scope out a complex situation and then respond with customized recycling programs for plastics, metals, electronics, fiber, and used machinery and equipment. In meeting the specific requests of our industrial partners, we have often built new facilities, expanded into new regions, and innovated new processes to better serve our customers.


Mervis Industries can design and implement a customized scrap management program for the recyclable products generated at your facility, maximizing revenues and minimizing costs.

The goals of this program include:

  • improving material segregation
  • minimizing waste by reclaiming and directing appropriate materials to the recycling stream
  • improving in-plant collection
  • providing proper transportation equipment for the various recyclable products in an environmentally sound manner


If you want something done but don’t have the time, expertise or equipment, let us help close the loop. We can start with your material, process it and return to you for reuse. Our tolling processes are available for ferrous, non-ferrous and plastic materials.

Customized tolling processes include:

  • shearing
  • baling or shredding
  • toll grinding
  • repelletization of plastic scrap
