Wise Recycling is one of the largest, direct-from-the-public collector of aluminum beverage containers in the United States. Wise Recycling was formed in 1998 when Wise Metals purchased the Reynolds Aluminum Recycling division from Reynolds Metals. Reynolds was one of the early pioneers of used beverage can recycling. Wise Recycling operates seven shipping and processing locations. These locations support a network of 50 neighborhood collection centers. This structure allows Wise Recycling to service consumers as well as industrial and independent recycling accounts nationwide. From our recycling centers, aluminum and other nonferrous metal materials are sorted, graded, and packaged and then sent to melting and fabricating facilities throughout the country. Wise Recycling is a member of the National Recycling Coalition and the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries.
