About Us

City Scrap and Salvage began operation in 1947 as a small, family-owned scrap yard. We now have an updated facility with the same core values and many of the same employees who have guided our success for decades.
For three generations, and more than 70 years, City Scrap and Salvage has provided a place where everyone, from large corporations to our residential neighbors, can exchange scrap metal for profit. Come and experience our superior customer service and friendly atmosphere for yourself!
We are home to the area's only automotive shredder. This shredding machine has two, 1,500 horsepower Waukesha natural gas engines, known as Thunder Pumpkins! From automobiles and auto parts, to aluminum siding, to stainless steel and appliances, as well as our industrial container service, we buy and recycle it all! We are ready to assist you with your scrap metal needs.
