Materials Purchased


United Metals Recycling operates both ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metal recycling in 4 locations across the state of Idaho. We have the capability and expertise to handle industrial and consumer materials that are at the end of their useful life. Once the scrap metal arrives at one of our yards it is carefully screened for contaminants and sorted into its specific recycling categories. All of our material is processed by sorting, shearing, shredding torching and baling in order to meet specific consumer needs to complete the recycling process.

United Metals Recycling has the expertise to identify and sort scrap metal into various specific ferrous and non-ferrous grades of metal. Depending on the material and the form, further processing may occur allowing the material to be effectively utilized by steel mills, copper or aluminum smelters, or other users of recycled materials. Most metals can be recycled almost infinitely which helps reduce our dependence on virgin natural resources, and since recycling is less energy intensive than using new materials, we help reduce our country’s oil consumption.
