PADNOS scrap metal

PADNOS is your smartest choice for scrapping metals.

We buy scrap metal, including most grades of ferrous and nonferrous metal scrap at our dedicated, scrap metal recycling facilities, located throughout Michigan. Our metal scrap yards handle prepared or unprepared materials, from valuable metal scrap from an industrial plant to old cars containing fluids and oils with tires still attached. In all operations, reducing waste and preventing pollution is a priority. (PADNOS reserves the right to refuse hazardous materials.)
