CMC Recycling got its start in Birmingham as a brand-new facility in 2004. Since then, we have proudly served Birmingham and the surrounding area, up to 100 miles. It’s our goal to provide only the highest level of customer service.

Our location features a Retail Express facility, specially-designed with the customer experience in mind. Our friendly staff are ready to assist customers with unloading their ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metal and will gladly guide you through the entire process, ensuring you can get in and out of our facility quickly and efficiently.

We’re conveniently located just two miles off Highway 59 and Tallapoosa Street. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to give us a call and a member of our staff can help. Otherwise, come by and see us!
