Simply collecting all materials that are made of metals for recycling reusable materials.
Upon receipt, different metals must be sorted in order to produce new materials.
Sorted metals are placed into large furnaces dedicated to the type of metal being melted.
During the melting phase, the purification process begins, ridding the scrap of any contaminants.
Once melted and purified, the processed metal is then solidified and shaped in preparation for redistribution.
B & D Metal Recyclers is the only scrapyard that puts people, not metal first. If you are the man off the street or a company with unwanted metal on a scheduled basis, you will be treated with the same service. We seek to provide a solution for those who are needing to create space by disposing of their unwanted metals, or are working on large projects involving scrap metal removal. We also offer container services for businesses with unwanted material on hand, all while giving our customers the utmost time and attention.
B&D is completely family owned and operated. It has always been a family thing to be involved in scrap as a child. Shaun, our current owner, grew up in a salvage yard and has continued with the tradition as he has grown older.
The business was originally owned and operated by Shaun’s father and mother, Benjamin and Donna. After the untimely passing of his father, Shaun gained control of the yard. He began with a small truck, and would buy scrap, turning around making small runs to other large scrap companies in the Charleston area. He repeated this process time and time again, and with the help of his brothers, has been able to expand the business into the large-scale operation that B&D Metal Recyclers is today.
SCRAP IS NOT WASTE AND RECYCLING IS NOT DISPOSAL
- Scrap is manufactured into valuable, specification-grade commodities that are used to make new products. Waste is material that has no further use and is land-filled or incinerated.
- Too often laws and regulations lump scrap and waste together, which can have the unintended consequence of making recycling more difficult for individuals and business. Recognizing the difference is critical to promoting sustainability in our communities. Recycling is not disposal.

Hands down the best yard I have been to! They keep it clean, and have a good system in place!
B&D is my go-to scrapyard. I scrap to make a little extra cash and this business is reliable. Over the past few years, I have probably run to this scrapyard a hundred times…I really like how B&D treats a small customer like me with scrap to sell.
Great people, and I always have a good time when I go!
