Remember that by recycling you are helping the environment and the economy in many ways. Every pound of metal that you recycle is one less pound that ends up in a landfill. In addition, recycling of metals uses much less energy than creating new metals from raw material, thus helping protect air quality, and save our natural resources.

Recycle and raise money for your school, club, or organization at the same time!

Do a “Cans for Cash” or “Metal for Money” drive! Simply call Elkins Metal Recycling to set up a donation account.

This is a great way to help the environment and raise money! Call us for more information!

About Elkins Metal & Recycling

The Elkins Recycling yard was established by Bill Lefkowitz in 1957 and was originally called Elkins Iron & Metal Co. In 1980, Bill’s son-in-law, Jim Gongola purchased the business and operated it until 2006. In 2006, Jim’s son, Andrew, purchased the assets of the business and re-named it Elkins Metal Recycling. Andrew also owns 3 Rivers Iron & Metal www.3RiversIronandMetal.com in Fairmont, WV.

In 2014, EMR expects higher prices for all metals and more innovation. Andrew encourages you to experience 21st century recycling by selling him your scrap metal.

In 2015, EMR:
• Had no lost time injuries
• Bought 3 more railcars to increase rail shipments to steel mills
In 2016, EMR:
• Andrew purchased C&K Salvage and Recycling in Moorefield, WV.  Before the doors had a chance to close, Andrew kept them opened and re-named it C & K Metal Recycling.  You can see more information and check out pricing at  www.CandKMetalRecycling.com
