November 5, 2018

Orange, California-based SA Recycling LLC has announced the purchase of two scrap yards in the Southeastern United States from St. Louis, Missouri-based Alter Trading Corp. The two facilities include an auto shredding yard in Mobile, Alabama, and another yard in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.

“SA’s commitment to customer service and employee well-being will allow an orderly transition and little disruption to customers, employees and consumers during the transition,” states SA Recycling in its news release announcing the transaction.

SA further states that “the sale will allow SA to leverage its regional strength in the South, benefit from Alter’s strong consumer relationship, and [allow] Alter to focus on more core operational regions of its business.”

Alter will retain a presence in the Southeast with its recent purchase of the former Tenenbaum Recycling Group (TRG) in August. Alter acquired all 10 former TRG locations, most of them in Arkansas.

SA Recycling has more than 70 locations, with a major presence in the Southwestern United States (including California), but also with facilities in Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee and now Mississippi. The company purchased East Point, Georgia-based Newell Recycling Southeast in 2016.
