Why is Custom Scrap Management Beneficial?

Industrial scrap recycling programs can enhance your company’s efficiency. Scrap generation is a daily reality at many facilities, a natural byproduct of the business. A proper disposal system will prevent scrap from piling up in your workspace and impacting your production. It also means less time managing the scrap yourself – one less thing to worry about.

It eliminates outsourcing and other extra steps, delivering more value in the process. If you have a unique production situation that doesn’t quite fit with standard solutions, or your scrap partner’s container pickup and delivery record is spotty, that can hurt the efficiency of your entire production line. Your recycling partner shouldn’t be the cause of unnecessary delays or downtime. Cohen maintains its own fabrication shop, and our transportation fleet is equipped with the best in onboard dispatch and navigation technology to ensure reliable, on-time service every time.

Family-owned since 1924, Cohen is one of the largest ferrous and non-ferrous metal recycling companies in North America, with a reach that spans the globe. Dedicated to the same values we were founded on, Cohen is People Powered Recycling. For people and enterprises generating scrap continuously, custom scrap management is a necessity. At Cohen scrap yards, we’ve been creating innovative scrapping solutions for hundreds of businesses for nearly a century.

Cohen's Scrap Management Process

First, contact Cohen for scrap management. A representative from our commercial team will collect your company’s information. The details you might need to have prepared are:

1.) What types of materials you have for recycling (ferrous scrap, non-ferrous scrap, etc)

2.) The volume of recyclable material your company generates

3.) What kind of container you’ll need

4.) Where you store your recyclable materials

Then, your consultant will reach out and schedule a visit to the company
