SA Recycling LLC has opened a new metal recycling facility in Santa Maria, Calif.

The facility will accept any metal item for cash, according to a news release from the Orange, Calif.-based company.

Individuals can bring metal items to the facility, where they will be weighed and customers are paid. SA Recycling also is offering special services for businesses, offering pickup and payment of the materials.

The purchased metal is shredded, sorted into various pure metals such as steel, aluminum, copper and iron, and shipped overseas for use in new appliances and automobiles.

“We are taking recycling to a new level by accepting not only aluminum cans, which most people associate with the recycling movement, but to also include all metal items that might be lying around their houses,” said George Adams, SA Recycling president.
