Metal Recycling Services’ Four Recycling Facilities Stand Down for Fall Prevention

Metal Recycling Services (MRS) is pleased to announce its participation in OSHA’s National Safety Stand Down for Fall Prevention.  During the week of June 2, every MRS recycling facility will conduct daily field-based safety meetings focusing on key aspects of fall prevention.   This includes fall hazard recognition, choosing the proper fall prevention systems, ladder safety, maintaining three-point contact, preventing slips/trips/falls on the same level and a focused review of personal fall arrest gear.

MRS appreciates OSHA’s efforts in organizing this event.  We support such outreach initiatives that greatly enhance cooperation between the agency and employers to work toward the same goal:   a safe and healthful workplace.

MRS is a metal recycler and  buys common household ferrous and nonferrous scrap metal items like appliances, gutters, sheet metal, automobiles, aluminum cans and other aluminum, copper and brass products.  Metal Recycling Services operates four scrap recycling facilities in North Carolina: Gastonia, Marion, Monroe and Whiteville.

Metals Recycling Services is wholly owned by The David J. Joseph Company (DJJ), a subsidiary of Nucor Corporation.  The David Joseph Company, founded in 1885, is one of the largest scrap brokers/processors in the United States providing scrap brokerage, recycling and transportation services.  Nucor and affiliates are manufacturers of steel products, with operating facilities primarily in the U.S. and Canada.
