Generated Materials Recovery

Commercial & Industrial Metal Recycling Services

For more than 20 years, Generated Materials Recycling has gained extensive knowledge in the business of commercial and industrial metal recycling. During that time, we’ve worked with thousands of clients in the manufacturing and industrial space who have needed industrial metal recycling services.

We understand that waste and recycling are not your core business and will make sure our services utilize as little of your resources as possible. If your company has a need to outsource metal recycling services and make the most of its waste, then you are our ideal client.

Using our deep industry knowledge and combined decades of practical experience, it is our goal to provide our clients with reliable solutions to achieve sustainability goals within our community.

Here are a few grades and types of metals with which we can help you recycle:


Metal recycling can be separated into two different grades: ferrous metal recycling and non-ferrous metal recycling.

The difference between the two is simple in that ferrous metals contain iron and non-ferrous metals do not. Since ferrous metals are more durable than non-ferrous they can be found in products that corrode more easily and rely on magnetic energy. Non-ferrous metals, on the other hand, are resistant to both corrosion and magnetism, which makes them a great choice for many industries due to their flexibility.

The metals listed below are only a few of the grades we’ve helped recycle in the past. If your business has another grade of metal you are interested in recycling and it’s not listed here, please contact us today.

Ferrous Metal Recycling

  • Mixed sheet iron
  • Steel (alloy and carbon)
  • Busheling

Non-Ferrous Metal Recycling

  • Aluminum
  • Copper
  • Lead
  • Zinc
  • Tin

GMR Process

GMR owns and operates its own recycling facilities around the United States. All the materials that are collected by GMR have the highest standards of safety and environmental regulatory compliance issued by the EPA.

At GMR we take the necessary time to understand what your business recycling goals are. Once those goals are understood we provide you with a detailed proposal for equipment, transportation, and all other commodities.

We then deliver and install equipment and set up a service schedule that best fits your business’s operation. As a premier recycling company, we are extremely knowledgeable in understanding the grades, service requirements, and how to convert these materials into useful and marketable commodities, which is how we maximize the value of them.

Types of Equipment

How is the cardboard collected?

  • 15-yard open tops
  • 20-yard open tops
  • 30-yard open tops
  • 50-yard open tops
  • loose in open tops*

*The size of the open top is driven by the weight of the material going into the open top. Also, the larger the open top (50 vs 30) the lighter the material.


We offer maximum flexibility in terms of how the material is collected in the most efficient way possible. This means we are respectful of our clients’ parameters: your floorspace, dock space, equipment, and labor. Our recycling programs reflect the unique conditions of each client.

Once GMR has collected your waste, there are a few ways in which we can transport the materials to our recycling facility.

  • Dedicated fleet of GMR roll-off truck services for open tops

GMR will provide you with as many open tops as you need to hold the various level of scrap metal you are generating at your facility.

Once your open top is full you will email GMR dispatch and the open top will be picked up within 48-hours. Our recycling process allows us to “drop and swap”, which means we will drop an empty open top and pick up the full one upon your request.

Why GMR?

GMR owns and operates its own recycling facilities around the United States and Asia. All the materials that are collected by GMR have the highest standards of safety and environmental regulatory compliance issued by the EPA.

At these facilities, we sort, clean, shred and prepare these materials for shipment up to the next step in the supply chain, which is metal smelters. We have our own fleet of trucks and tractor trailers as well as tailored logistics capabilities for your unique situation.

The GMR Difference – Pricing

GMR pays the true current market price to our clients for their materials. Our prices will fluctuate depending on what the current market is. GMR will never charge for materials that deviate from the true market value. Beware that other recycling service companies are only focused on specific grades and commodities, which enables them to charge you whatever they want.

What sets us apart from the other recycling companies is that we are client-centric and not commodity sector focused. GMR is proud to have a pricing model that is fully transparent since the market prices for metal will vary per month.
