CMC Recycling Gainesville has served the greater Gainesville area since 1998, operating our 48-acre site for customers that range from individual, retail customers, up through large customers unloading trucks and trailers. We’re equipped to safely and efficiently get every customer unloaded, processed and paid!

Our facility is unique among other CMC Recycling yards in that we feature our U Pull ‘n Save auto salvage yard – a self-service salvage yard for auto and truck parts where customers can buy used vehicles and parts at a fraction of the cost of typical retail pricing.As a member of the Chamber of Commerce, we have a proud commitment to serving our community. We actively participate with local fire, rescue and law enforcement agencies to support various trainings they undertake for the community.

We look forward to continuing to serve Gainesville, the greater Alachua county and the surrounding areas. Come see us, located north of 441 off NW 55th Place.
