CMC Recycling pays immediately for all materials, with no wait time. First-time customers should expect to receive a check as payment for their first transaction for regulated material. All customers with a physical mailing address (excluding P.O. Boxes) can apply for a Cash Transaction Card upon arrival that will be mailed to your address and will allow you to receive cash for all materials on future visits.

Certain types of scrap material are regulated and require documentation from individuals in order to sell. Types of items that require documentation include aluminum material (excluding aluminum cans), bronze material, copper or brass material, lead material and regulated metal.

Feel free to call us prior to visiting to determine if your material may be regulated and what requirements you will need to meet.
