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.
