About Us: ZERO TO HERO

With over 80 years of combined experience in the scrap metal recycling business, our team has built Mighty River Recycling from the ground up. It all started in 2007 with Todd Peckham (owner), a few employees, one steel dump, and a CAT325. MRR has since grown substantially. We owe a lot of credit for our success early on to Amsted Rail, a local steel foundry who we hold an exclusive arrangement supplying Amsted Rail all their ferrous scrap needs still to this day. By 2011 Mighty River Recycling had purchased their main operating yard located in Madison IL. Later, another location was added in East St. Louis, IL. Moving forward to December 2021, we moved our corporate location from Madison, IL to Alton, IL due to our exclusive agreement with Alton Steel Inc. who we are the sole supplier of their ferrous metal and have since closed our East St. Louis location. Due to hard work, unmatched service, integrity, and competitive pricing, our team has built the company to be one of the key market participants for ferrous and non-ferrous materials in the Greater St. Louis Area. We greatly appreciate our monthly generated scrap from the various accounts we serve across, but not limited to, the Midwest.​ Let's GROW TOGETHER!
