Welcome to Chico Scrap Metal & Recycling Center
Welcome and thank you for visiting the Chico Scrap Metal web site. We buy and/or recycle all metals (ferrous & non-ferrous). Our goal in the creation of our website is to reach out to the community in an effort to provide information related to our scrap metal recycling business and provide the community with the opportunity to recycle discarded material within the scrap metal industry.
We hope you find this website informative and useful. Our mission is to continue to implement best business practices in recycling activities with our philosophy of:
Recycle Today for a Green Tomorrow
Chico Scrap Metal/Recycling continues to strive to maintain the most up to date, best practices applicable to protecting the environment while concurrently managing recyclable materials.
We No Longer Accept California Redemption Value (CRV) Materials
Our last day accepting CRV recyclable materials will be Friday, August 6, 2021. As many of you know we have been a long standing fight (10yrs) to remain open and to provide recycling services to our community. These efforts have been costly to date.
The City of Chico has chosen to no longer make an effort to settle this dispute – help us remain open – help us relocate and instead continue onto a lawsuit. (Read More)
This was the first proposal in 2016 that was then rescinded due to a law suit brought by Karl Ory (before Mr. Ory became a council member) and Bob Mulholland against the City of Chico and Chico Scrap Metal.
In June 2021, a second proposal was rejected by the City of Chico, leading us to a lawsuit and to the stop of our California Redemption Value (CRV) recycling services.
