Who We areJeff Merkel and his father....

Merkel Metal Recycling and Roll-Off Containers is a family owned and operated business, which started on a small scale in the mid 60's as a supplemental income. In 1983, Merkel Scrap Iron & Metal was formed and became a fulltime business, specializing in on-site industrial scrap metal clean up, at designated areas; sometimes referred to as boneyards. With the growing need for our services, as the industrial sector strives for cleaner and safer work places, our company has evolved to meet the services and demands of our customers.
