I visited this business recently and had a really great experience! I needed to get rid of some really old metal cookware. I was immediately helped once I parked and they even took the glass tops of the cookware and disposed of them for me. They were busy on a Saturday morning, but the overall process of payment went smoothly. I would definitely come back here again!

I recycled 50 brass backflow preventers. Staff were friendly and efficient. Accurate scales. The overall experience and amount paid was worth the drive in from Spring.
