Rifkin Scrap Iron & Metal Co., Saginaw, Michigan, is moving its headquarters facility during its 80th anniversary. The company is moving its Saginaw facility from Niagara Street in Saginaw to Washington Street in Saginaw.

According to MLive.com, the Saginaw location will be moved in early 2019. Rifkin Scrap Iron & Metal Co. CEO David Rifkin told MLive.com the company has had plans to move locations for about a dozen years; however, he says “due to the economic downturn in 2008, the process was slowed down.” 

To prepare for the move, the business sold two of its facilities about three years ago—one in Lansing, Michigan, and one in Traverse City, Michigan. Rifkin Scrap Iron & Metal now operates just one other facility in West Branch, Michigan, MLive.com reports.

The new Saginaw location will offer full-service scrap metal recycling, roll-off containers, car recycling, certified destruction for government agencies and businesses and rail access to load and unload railroad cars. Rifkin told MLive.com that the new location is more environmentally friendly with self-contained stormwater retention on-site.
