On the 23rd anniversary of opening its doors in Lee County, Florida, Ohio-based Garden Street Iron & Metal is celebrating another event—the grand opening of its Naples, Fla., recycling facility. (Garden Street Iron & Metal was profiled in the July 2010 edition of Recycling Today.)
With the new Naples yard comes the immediate addition of eight new jobs, with more to come,” says Garden Street Iron & Metal President Rob Weber.
He says he began the Fort Myers facility with 10 employees. “Today, I have more than 70 employees. I look forward to the same kind of success in Naples,” Weber adds.
“This is the first full-service scrap metal facility in Naples,” he says of the new yard in the South Industrial Park near Naples Municipal Airport.
“We buy automobiles, appliances, steel, aluminum, copper—virtually any scrap metal that customers bring to us will give them a cash return,” Weber says. “We are delighted to be able to offer this service in a clean, environmentally friendly environment.”
