Specialized Solutions 

Republic Services’ Metals Recovery Service reclaims valuable metal residues from selected waste streams, providing a sustainable alternative to traditional disposal methods.  

Metals Recovery Service 

Our recycling technologies economically recover metals resulting in a significant benefit to the environment and our customers. Because Republic Services operates under an EPA variance that classifies us as a waste recycler, we’re able to recycle plating by-products containing copper, cobalt, nickel, zinc and tin as well as spent plating solutions, sludges, residues and grindings that otherwise would have required landfill disposal. We work with a network of smelters, refiners and other metal bearing waste recycling operations to ensure the best outlet for your recovered materials.

Streamlined Services 

Our recycling operations are co-located with other Republic Services waste facilities, enabling us to efficiently manage your recyclable materials as well as non-recyclable hazardous and non-hazardous waste. 

Our Capabilities  

  • Plating by-products containing copper, nickel, zinc, tin 
  • Spent plating solutions, sludges, residues and grindings
