What Makes Us Different:


Our goal is to maximize the value of your company’s scrap metal while minimizing its impact on the environment. Green Planet 21 offers customized recycling programs for iron and steel and nonferrous metals including aluminum, copper, stainless steel, nickel, brass, tin, and titanium.

Depending on the specific needs of your company, we assess all scrap being generated at your facility and create a custom recycling solution. Our long experience in the metals recycling industry guides the process. We base our prices according to the American Metal Markets (AMM.) Your company gains the best price possible for your recyclable commodities.

We offer roll-off box service holding 8-10 tons and flatbed service holding up to 20 tons of material. We also offer 4 × 4 bins or create customized bins or collection methods based on your company’s needs. Green Planet 21 recycles outdated machinery, including conveyers, industrial machines, and worn, displaced, and broken equipment.


In order to facilitate efficient scrap collection and allow you to focus on your core business, we can train your employees or place one of our own employees on site to manage collection.

Recycling scrap metal benefits your company’s bottom line as well as the environment. Each ton of recycled steel eliminates the need to mine for 25,000 pounds of iron ore, 1,400 pounds of coal and 120 pounds of limestone. Recycling significantly reduces greenhouse gas emissions affiliated with mining and steel production.

Competitive Pricing

Green Planet 21 uses a competitive pricing model and will give you the best price possible for handling the recyclables generated at your facility. Because we are a full-service provider of various recyclable commodities, Green Planet 21 can lower your company’s freight costs. For example, when we move mixed loads from your facility to ours.

Our plants in Oakland and Tacoma are adjacent to large U.S. ports. So, we can avoid freeway driving as we deliver recyclables for shipment oversees. Our trucks can carry 17,000 more pounds per truckload than most of our competitors.


This efficiency reduces our own freight costs and enables us to pass on those savings to our customers.

Baled cardboard and paper have a higher value than the loose paper that needs to be processed. We offer balers, compactors and other receptacles through our leasing and purchasing programs. The ROI is short and we can provide equipment upfront to be paid off over a period of time.
