About Us

Started in 1960 as a small scrap yard with one truck and a lean-to, Belson Steel Center Scrap, Inc. has grown to become a full-service scrap processor and recycling center handling over 100,000 tons of material annually. Located on a 16-acre site in Bourbonnais, Illinois, it provides scrap metal and recycling services, from the collection of aluminum cans from walk-in customers to industrial scrap services involving pickup and delivery utilizing its large fleet of containers and trucks.

For big loads of scrap metal, it may be challenging for you to manage transportation on your own. We maintain a fleet of vehicles and can offer transportation and on-site container rental services for businesses and individuals who have large pieces or quantities of scrap metal ready for recycling. Just call us today to learn more.
