Environmental Responsibility

We have a commitment to our communities and the environment, as well as a commitment to innovation in the steel industry.

CMC Recycling is dedicated to minimizing our impact on the environment and protecting our natural resources. We accomplish this by utilizing some of the most modern processing technologies in the industry.

The metal recycled and processed at our scrap metal yards becomes a raw material that feeds mills, forgeries and manufacturing facilities around the world. When you choose to recycle your scrap metal with us, you are doing your part to help minimize our overall impact on the environment.

In fact, all CMC steel produced at our electric arc furnace (EAF) minimills and micromills - from rebar, angles, channels and other long products to our t-post fence posts - is made using 100 percent recycled ferrous scrap metal. By using recycled scrap metal as our primary raw material, CMC mills reduce the need for mining natural resources, and we’re reducing our CO2 emissions by an average of 58 percent.

Compliance with national and local regulations is viewed as the minimum requirement by our facilities, and we continually strive to find improved solutions for protecting our environment. We pride ourselves on working with local communities, chambers of commerce, law enforcement agencies and governments where our locations are based by supporting efforts to improve the communities where we live and work.
