How can we help you?

Scrap Recycling

Every year our scrap metal recycling division processes over 100 million pounds of scrap metal. We offer competitive scrap steel prices and scrap metal prices. While our specialty is heavy, industrial ferrous metals we can also handle all non-ferrous scrap…aluminum, brass, copper, stainless steel and other alloy scrap. Our ferrous and nonferrous scrap recycling services cover Northern Florida & Southern Georgia with our roll-off containers, specialized processing equipment, and hauling.

Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries, Circle of Safety Excellence. Safety, or not at all.

We also purchase your aluminum, brass, copper, iron, lead, nickel alloys, stainless steel and other scrap metal for the best price. In addition to drop-off assistance, we provide fast pick up and delivery of roll-off containers, scrap dump trailers and flatbeds. Our facility has certified truck and platform scales, with both handheld and truck-scale radiation detection capabilities. We understand how valuable an accurate weight and grade is for our customers, so instead of the industry-standard annual certification, we certify our scales four times a year to give our customers an added peace of mind.

Berman Brothers can also accommodate onsite requests like demolition cleanup, live-loads and mobile baling. When a building comes down, no other metal recycling center throughout Florida or Georgia can haul, cut and handle big steel scrap like we do.

I continue to be impressed with Andy on this project. He is an exceptional asset for us and is extremely productive. He consistently has quick turn around times taking loads from the yard and returning for another. We can always count on maximizing progress on days when he is with us. He deserves a lot of credit for the speed at which the project is moving forward. We greatly appreciate his participation.
