Our Mission

Our Mission is to contribute significant effort in maintaining a sustainable environment. Like the communities we serve, we are equally as concerned for the preservation of our diminishing resources. We recognize that ecological stewardship relies upon the actions we undertake and the services we provide to others. We will provide to our customers the highest level of service by understanding their recycling needs through courteous interactions and by continually educating ourselves. We will strive to be part of the solution to stopping material theft. In all our efforts we strive to provide quality service, competitive prices in a safe and friendly environment.

Our Commitment

Our commitment to recycling and the environment began in 1988. Opening its doors in Blue Island, Illinois, Metro Recycling set out on a mission to improve not only the community, but also the environment. Over the next 24 years, Metro Recycling expanded by opening more recycling locations in Northwest Indiana.

Today, Metro is still striving to help the community. Now with four recycling locations in the Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana area, we are dedicated to providing quality service while helping maintain a sustainable environment. At Metro, we believe that taking care of the environment involves the whole community. Metro works hard to lessen our impact on the world by making scrap metal, paper and plastic easier to recycle and more profitable for the consumer.

Our strong commitment to our customers and the environment will continue to be evident in every aspect of our business. Our customers can count on receiving quality service, competitive prices and a friendly atmosphere at Metro.
