Cherry City Metals has a eco-friendly metal recycling operation that prides itself on being a model in the water filtration system process. We perform regular ground and water sampling to ensure a healthy and sustainable future for the environment.
All metal processing done at our facility is handled and contained on concrete to eliminate soil contamination. Water collected in this manner is moved through several oil/water separators and then into a large holding tank. After settling in the tank, the water is then pumped through a filtration system that removes all metal and impurities before it leaves our facility through a bio swale. Not only is eco-friendly metal recycling important for the environment, recycling can also help you to earn money. Reduce your carbon footprint by taking an eco-friendly approach and recycle the scrap metals around your home or business.
