CMC Recycling has served Springfield and the surrounding community since 1956 – and a scrap yard has been at this location on the corner of Phelps and Washington since 1912! We are committed to making your visit to our facility a safe and pleasant experience. We work diligently to assure our customers receive the best value for their scrap metal.  We provide metal recycling solutions to a diverse customer base, including industrial, dealer, demolition, small business and individuals. Each with a unique set of requirements and demands, we strive to create long-term sustainable value for all our customers. 

We’re a proud sponsor of The Boys and Girls Club of Springfield and will match all aluminum cans donated on their behalf.
