Dear Ken,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank H&C Metals, Balemet Recycling, and you personally, for the excellent service provided us disposing of the electrical substation. Your staff was always professional and prepared to receive the materials, while unloading our equipment in an expeditious manner. I can honestly say that it was a pleasure working with you and look to continue this relationship in future endeavors.

I would like to thank you and your entire team of professionals at H&C Metals for their assistance in disposing of some scrap metal. I would highly recommend H&C Metals to anyone in need of a recycling company. Thanks again to Ken and his staff.

Hi Ken,
Thank you very much for recommending your customer to pick-up our scrap metal. He was on time, and was very professional and polite in his manner. He returned our phone calls promptly, and called to let us know that he was on the way for the appointment. We did not think the large freezer and refrigerator would fit in his truck, but he definitely knew what he was doing! We happily waved good-bye to our stuff. Thanks again!

“The Deron School of New Jersey, Inc. has had the pleasure of working collaboratively with H&C Metals for many years. Green Vision, Deron’s student-led recycling program, is supported by Ken Oettinger and his team. H&C Metals has provided an opportunity for real life experience to match our students’ learning. We highly recommend H&C Metals, and look forward to many continued years of this partnership.”

“I cannot recommend H & C Metals, Inc. highly enough. St. John’s Church suffered extensive damage to its steeple during Super Storm Sandy. Over one ton of old lead-coated copper had to be removed from the steeple & scrapped.

Ken Oettinger of H & C Metals was exceedingly helpful in not only providing a competitive price when the church was ready to salvage the old copper, but provided a wealth of very important information about metal salvage in general and the things we could do to ensure the best price — long before we had even committed to H & C. On the day the salvage was to be picked up the driver arrived exactly on schedule, was exceedingly polite and professional as well as amazingly efficient. From the first conversation to the day the check arrived it has been a pleasure to work with Ken and the folks at H & C.”
