XENIA —River Metals Recycling’s Xenia facility on Jasper Road celebrated 100 years of recycling June 13.
River Metals Recycling purchased the assets and business of Xenia Iron & Metal in July 2007, but the Xenia yard traces its roots back to 1917. Over the years, RMR teammates have grown the company by executing strategies that have led to RMR’s success and reflect RMR’s core values: safety, excellence, integrity, and respect.
RMR buys common household ferrous and nonferrous scrap metal items like appliances, gutters, sheet metal, automobiles, aluminum cans and other aluminum, copper and brass products and electronic scrap. The Xenia facility is open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday–Friday and 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Saturdays.
RMR is wholly owned by The David J. Joseph Company (DJJ). DJJ is a subsidiary of Nucor Corporation, the largest purchaser of ferrous scrap in North America.
