Sell Your Metals
PADNOS is your smartest choice for scrapping ferrous and nonferrous 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.)
If you’re selling scrap metal and want competitive pricing, quick payment, timely scheduling, on-schedule pickup service, and clear reporting, then contact PADNOS. We’re known for all that and more.

Processing Infrastructure – Let’s Crush This.™
Our commitment to continued investments in leading-edge equipment allows us to provide the fastest, safest, and most effective sorting, testing and processing systems for scrap materials. PADNOS has a comprehensive processing infrastructure that includes:
PADNOS operates one of only two hot briquetting operations in North America. During this process, cast iron borings and steel turnings are combined with other materials to create a solid briquette with less than 1% moisture content. Briquettes get used as a substitute for pig iron and other similar inputs crucial to the steel production process.
Ferrous and Nonferrous Balers
PADNOS operates multiple ferrous and nonferrous balers, along with several upstroke balers and brickers that allow us to compress loose, new industrial, or post-consumer metals and mold them to the size and weight that meets customer requirements.
Nonferrous Metal Separation Plant
Our cutting-edge nonferrous metal separation plant recovers metals out of auto shredder residue. The system produces insulated wire, circuit boards, Zorba, and Zurik that are further recycled for future reuse. By separating nonferrous metal from waste contained within raw auto shredder residue, the amount of nonmagnetic metal sent to landfills is greatly reduced.
Shears and Shredders
PADNOS has shears and shredders to manage the destruction of anything from automobiles and appliances to proprietary parts. Our fixed hydraulic shears cut plate, farm equipment, tanks, racking, and other materials. The PADNOS team then sorts the materials into foundry- and mill-specific products according to customer specifications. We also operate multiple shredders to produce fragmented metal products and shredded cast iron.
Wire Chopping Plant
PADNOS operates a state-of-the-art wire and cable processing plant to effectively shred: # 1 insulated copper wire, # 2 insulated copper wire, harness wire, insulated aluminum wire, ACSR, and auto shredder insulated wire. This enables us to serve as a regular supplier of a wide range of high-grade clean copper and aluminum chops.
