CMC Recycling began operating in Alexander City twelve years ago and proudly serves Southeast Alabama. Our clean, professional facilities are equipped to receive as well as ship ferrous and nonferrous metals by truck, with crane-assisted unloading as needed.  We have a highly trained staff to help you at every step of the metal recycling process. For commercial or industrial customers, we can pick up scrap within a 100-mile radius of our location.

We remain committed to the community of Alexander City by providing a solution for its metal recycling needs and more. We work with surrounding fire departments to provide training opportunities for their rookie students on how to use extraction equipment on automobiles.

Come visit our location today to learn more about our facility, staff and metal recycling process!
