Samuels Recycling Transport LLC


This company was founded in 1896 when the Samuels family opened the first division in Portage, WI, equipped with horse-drawn carts, handling any discarded materials that had potential reuse. These included metals, hides, fat, rags, bones- even feathers! To cater to the needs of war plants in World War-II, the company began to specialize in metals. Toward the end of the 40's and 50's, came the demand for durable goods; as a result, the industry continued to require all kinds of metals for manufacturing-iron, steel and most grades of non-ferrous metals such as copper, aluminum and brass.

The rapid use of natural resources led to the company foreseeing the consequentgrowth of the recycling industry and Samuels continually expanded itsofferings of products and services. Then, in 1974, Samuels began to recycle paper and went on to become one of the first recycling firms in the state to start recycling glass and plastic. The Samuels Recycling Company has since then been focusing on being consumer, market and competition driven in its core business: recycling of ferrous and non-ferrous metals, glass, plastics, paper and related transportation services and operate in a well planned way that ensures quality products and services at fair prices.
