Mighty River Recycling

Elevating the standards of the recycling industry

With over 100 years of combined experience in the recycling business, our team has built Mighty River Recycling from the ground up.

2010- The Ferrous Trading Business was established

2011- Our first physical location was acquired in Madison, IL

2013- Purchased a 10-acre East St. Louis, IL yard with Terminal Railroad Access

2014- Corporate office acquired in Madison, IL

2021- East St. Louis yard and corporate office were moved to Alton, IL, a 40-acre facility with direct access to the NS and UP railroads

MRR has since grown substantially in our local St. Louis market and beyond. We owe a lot of our success to our consumer partners, specifically Alton Steel Inc., a local SBQ mill whom we hold an exclusive arrangement with, which includes steel processing capabilities and supplying all of their ferrous scrap needs.
