CMC Will Not Buy Stolen Material

Commercial Metals Company has several checkpoints in place to protect the scrap metal we buy and help to ensure that it is not stolen. Among the many actions we perform, we subscribe to ScrapTheftAlert.com which continuously posts material that has been reported stolen. We also visually inspect and verify that the items which cross our scales are the property of the seller. While rare, entire loads have been rejected and, if necessary, accounts have been suspended.

EVERYONE WINS. These actions help protect the public by alerting the authorities of stolen or suspect material and they ensure we take in only proper scrap metal for recycling.


At Commercial Metals Company we take the safety and well-being of our employees very seriously. OUR GOAL IS TO DO OUR WORK THE RIGHT WAY. What is “RIGHT?” The right way is the correct, consistent and safe way of doing our jobs.
