An advantage of doing business with Encore Recycling is that we utilize the latest technology & state of the art equipment to process and create specific commodities and grades for our partner customers.  Encore's products are sold directly to steel mills, foundries, and smelters throughout the United States of America and across the globe.  These direct relationships and the specific qualities of our scrap ultimately bring higher prices for the scrap we buy.
