About Us

We make scrap metal recycling easy. Its that simple. For many decades, Smith Iron and Metal has served the greater Richmond community when it comes to recycling. We’ve proudly served customers in Richmond since 1940. Smith Iron & Metal was founded on the principle of treating all our customers with the utmost respect. This core belief has enabled us to give the fastest, friendliest service possible. This is what we’re all about, and we’ve never lost sight of this.

These days, we utilize the best technology to further enhance your experience, and to make this fast, easy and straightforward. State of the art computers allow us to complete a customer’s transactions in mere moments. Our massive shredder facility enables us to process metals at a rate far exceeding that of our what we were able to process back in the day.

We also take great pride in always maintaining a debris free customer area. Our lot is completely paved.
