Want to get rid of that scrap metal?

Then consider Buckman Iron & Metal Inc. of Coplay, which has served the scrap metal recycling needs of the greater Lehigh Valley for over 100 years.

With that type of longevity, it's no wonder, then, why the business has received the distinction of Business of the Month by the Greater Northern Lehigh Chamber of Commerce.

Located at 3980 Portland Street, the family-owned business provides a full range of comprehensive scrap management services and technically advanced scrap handling equipment to all types of industrial accounts throughout the Eastern Pennsylvania.

It is also able to collect ferrous and non-ferrous scrap from the metal working industry, metal service centers and other sources by providing in-plant accumulation and retrieval bins and/or truck containers at their facilities, which are then transported to the processing facility. They also accept junk cars and as well as well as house hold scrap metal from the public, such as computers, laptops, cell phones, key boards, and so on.

Prices paid for scrap metals on a delivered basis are determined primarily by market demand and the composition, quality, size and weight of the materials.

Terry Buckman, president of the business, said "doing business with us means doing business with the very best."

"Our substantial investment in processing equipment, and an extensive truck fleet ensures the highest level of service," Buckman said. "Our mission is to serve customers and produce high-quality product safely"

Buckman reiterated that safety is key.

"If we cannot do it safely, we will not do it at all," he said. "We want to be your one stop facility for all your scrap metal recycling."
