Company Description Richmond Steel Recycling, a scrap metal recycler, categorizes scrap metals as either ferrous or non-ferrous. Scrap appliances, automobiles and other light gauge metals are shredded into small pieces.

The metal is then sold to steel mills or smelters for production of new steel or non-ferrous metals.
