About Yard

Sims Brothers Recycling is Central Ohio’s fastest growing recycling company. For 75 years we’ve been a family-owned, hands-on, people-minded and service-oriented business serving households, farms, businesses and industries.Today we employ over 160 associates at our four recycling locations, and on-site at several of our major industrial customers.Our size has its advantages. We process over 550 million pounds of recyclable material every year, making us a volume material supplier big enough to tackle almost any recycling opportunity.  Yet our family management style also allows nimble out-of-the box thinking and 24/7 customer support, so we can take a personal interest in your business.Sims Brothers buys, transports, processes, brokers and sells all types of recyclable products including scrap iron and steel, nonferrous metals, cardboard, newspaper, high grade paper, plastics, and glass.To transport these recyclable materials, Sims operates a fleet of semi tractors and trailers, roll off trucks and lugger trucks. We also work with independent hauling operators and with the railroad through our own railhead.After preparing the recyclables to meet customer specifications, they are sold to mills throughout the Midwest. And then, the cycle begins again.

Family History - values you don't throw away.

We started with nothing but a wagon and a dream.During the 1920's, two elementary school-aged brothers, out of economic necessity, started collecting scrap metals and waste paper throughout the city of Marion, Ohio. Using a small hand-pulled wagon, Carl and Donald Sims sold the materials to a local scrap processor.From that humble beginning, the boys graduated to a dump truck. Eventually, Sims Bros. Inc. grew from a simple scrap peddling operation into a sophisticated, environmentally aware, multi-faceted recycling/processing management operation. Hard work, integrity and dedication to customer service have motivated this family owned business for over 75 years.Today we employ over 160 associates at facilities in four cities and at numerous customer sites. This privately owned business is now owned and managed by Gary Sims, President.He’ll be the first to tell you, when you put your heart into a family business, it’s in the right place.

A Culture of Safety.

It's a simple goal – that takes a lot of time and effort. Everyone, including customers, contractors, visitors and teammates, leaves our facilities in the same, or better, physical condition than when they arrived.With the goal of zero accidents, we have an aggressive, proactive approach to safety. Our comprehensive health and safety procedures and policies exceed standards established by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). (See our Safety Policy Statement). The Sims Brothers safety program is successful thanks to a company-wide commitment to a strong, continuing safety culture.

Sims Brothers safety program includes:

  • Comprehensive safety orientation and monthly safety training meetings.
  • Regular safety walkthroughs of our facilities to maintain and improve safe working conditions.
  • Providing each employee with the tools, support, and knowledge they need to perform their duties safely and consistently.
  • Zero Tolerance policy with respect to the use of alcohol and drugs in the work place, reinforced by random drug dog inspections.
