Goldsboro Metal Recycling (Formerly Goldsboro Iron and Metal), in North Carolina was founded as a Scrap Metal & Salvage Yard / Scrap Yard by Joseph S. Brown, who moved to Goldsboro, North Carolina from Dayton, Ohio in 1922 and opened Goldsboro Iron and Metal.
Seymour Brown, also known as "Junk Brown" began running the company in 1937. Under Seymour, the company became the Emerald of Isle of the Scrap Metal Recycling business in North Carolina. He built the largest Scrap Metal Salvage operation in North Carolina. Having also purchased the location now known as Raleigh Metal Recycling and Wilson Metal Recycling, the Goldsboro and Raleigh locations became leaders in Scrap Metal Recycling: Scrap Steel, Scrap Copper, Scrap Aluminum, Scrap Brass, Junk Cars, (Salvage Cars) and even Aluminum Can recycling. When Seymour Brown died in 1993, his family had management, a lawyer and an accountant supervise the company. Just before he sold the Wilson operation to Jeff Charles, who in 2013, decided to run it in partnership with the Raleigh and Wilson operations.
We are now becoming more of a full service Recycling Center by buying, Lead Acid batteries, Electronics, Cardboard, Appliances, Paper, Plastics and even Wood in some areas all with great prices on scrap metal and other material. Our 14 full time drivers make us the largest privately owned, Recycling only, focused fleet in North Carolina.
In August, 2007, the company was acquired by Greg Brown, who began a transformation of the facilities as Scrap Metal Recycling became an ever more important part of the Global economy.
Today, Raleigh Metal Recycling, Goldsboro Metal Recycling and Wilson Recycling are thriving as they process and buy all types of Scrap Steel, Scrap copper, scrap aluminum Junk Cars and Salvage Cars. Now the move to buy Electronics, Cardboard, Paper, Plastic and wood in some areas, at great prices with Great Service is a reality. Importantly though Safety is First as we continue to grow and improve on efficiency and most importantly, customer service. The Raleigh Operation was even named as one of the "Fast 50". One of the 50 fastest growing companies in the "Triangle" Raleigh, Cary, Durham North Carolina.
We are on the cutting edge of the recycling industry to improve our environment and to ensure competitive prices for a full range of materials. We are no longer a "scrap yard", but rather a Recycling Center offering the Best in Products and Services. Scrap Metal and Scrap Metal Recycling and Electronics, Cardboard, Paper, Plastics and Wood is our Business. We have the best Recycling Centers in the business.
