Our family is deeply saddened to announce the death of one of our most beloved. Yesterday, Rodney “Hot Rod” Robbins passed away peacefully in his sleep. He was a 25 year employee who gave his life to God, his family and to his many friends. He lived life to the fullest, and gave TT&E his best years. His family here at TT&E will miss him greatly, and pray that we can help his immediate family get through this terrible tragedy. Rest in peace, Brother.

Are you ready to spring into action and put some cash into your pocket? Then get the scrap out of the house and over to TT&E. Did you know you can go green while getting some green (cash) of your own? We pay top dollar for scrap metal and make the process super easy! All you have to do is load up all your scrap metal items and roll them onto our inbound scales. You will then be directed to the proper unloading zone and once unloaded, your car will be weighed a second time on our outbound scale. Once parked, you simply come inside, hand us your ticket and receive cash for your items. Now you can help the environment while getting paid to do your Spring cleaning!

Tips from experienced scrappers that will save you time and (hopefully) make you more money!

Keep Your Scrap Metal Safe

Unfortunately, some people take advantage of our hard work to scrap metal and try to steal it. It’s actually a big problem we face. Scrap metal pros know that having a safe, secure area to store your scrap will help deter thieves and prevent theft. Scrap metal is often lifted from businesses, construction sites and homes. Lock it up in a shed and/or install a high fence around your work area. This investment will not only save your scrap value but give you peace of mind. Continue reading →

Plastic Trash on Beach

We are huge advocates of environmental protection and it shows in the way we do business every day.

As a metal recycler, we keep millions of pounds of metal out of landfills and prevent mining for new metals. So when you bring your metal to us, you have a big impact on the environment. Even the way we recycle metal is better for the environment. We’ve invested in an eco-friendly shredder that is electric powered and water cooled. It has no negative effect on the environment! We also are reducing our carbon footprint with rooftop solar panels which have already offset 816,147 lbs of CO2 since installation.

This year, the world’s larger environmental movement, Earth Day April 22, is focused on ending plastic pollution. Just as we aim to keep metal from ending up in landfills, we can all do our part to keep plastic from polluting our planet, especially our beaches and oceans. Continue reading →

Then, after you drop off your scrap, we weigh you again on your way out. This ensures we get an accurate weight measurement which means you get accurate payment for your scrap. Here are a few things to keep in mind when visiting our scrap yard… Continue reading →
