CMC Recycling on Good Latimer in Dallas is home to the original site of CMC’s first recycling yard, established in 1915. Building on this heritage as your trusted recycling partner, we strive to provide the highest levels of professionalism, competitive pricing, and deep local market knowledge for all our valued customers. As a leader in metals recycling, we cover North Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma with the full breadth of scrap management solutions.
We welcome all customers, from large industrial accounts to small businesses and individuals. Our yard is conveniently located near Deep Ellum at the intersection of Good Latimer and Hickory and is designed to maximize recycling efficiencies for you, creating the greatest value for your scrap. For smaller loads, customers can bypass the larger drop off entrance and use our Recycling Express facility, located directly across the street from the main yard. Walk-in customers are welcome and will be treated with prompt, courteous service.
We are committed to the community where we live and work. And are proud to support the Dallas Regional Chamber of Commerce and the Booker T. Washington School for The Performing and Visual Arts, where we host an annual Scrap Can be Beautiful exhibit and contest for students.
