Section 7 - Off-Site Metals Recycling
7.2 AVAILABILITY OF METALS RECYCLING SERVICES
7.2.2 Locations of Off-Site Recycling Facilities
During the NCMS project, off-site recycling firms that accept
non-precious-metal-bearing wastes from electroplating shops were
identified from the Users Survey and other sources. Each of the
recycling companies identified during these efforts was contacted
and surveyed using a questionnaire to collect information and
data on their services. From this process, ten companies were
identified and confirmed as metal recycling firms. Eight of the
confirmed recycling companies responded to the questionnaire survey.
Exhibit 7-3 shows the locations of all ten metals recycling companies.
As shown, several of these companies have multiple plants in different
regions of the country. Some of these companies accept wastes
in very specific forms or within a narrow analytical range, while
other accept a broad range of wastes. Also, as will be discussed,
several of these companies do not accept F006 sludge.
