Garden Street Iron & Metal recycling complex, located just west of downtown Cincinnati, OH, has been owned and operated by the Weber family for more than five decades. The complex, set on 22 acres with three nearby rail spurs in Spring Grove, is a beehive of activity as both consumers and businesses truck in ferrous and nonferrous metal for re-processing. To remain on the leading edge in the highly competitive scrap recycling atmosphere, the company must invest in the most technologically advanced equipment on the market.
The recycling operation has undergone a major transformation since the end of 2013 with almost $19 million invested in new equipment and infrastructure, including a variety of Eriez recycling products. After ongoing discussions with Eriez representatives and on-site evaluations, Garden Street installed an array of Eriez equipment, including a PokerSort , two P-Rex84 Scrap Drums with Underflow Processing System, two Magnetic Pulleys, two RevX-E Eddy Current Separators, one ProSort II Airless Metal Recovery System, one FinesSort Metal Recovery System and a Metal Loss Monitor.
The upgrades and state-of-the-art recycling equipment now enable Garden Street to process more than 8,000 tons of scrap each month. What started out as a scrap metal trucking company by Earl Weber Sr. in 1958 has now grown into a technologically-driven operation with a continuous upside.
