H&C Metals provided us with a one stop shop for our IT equipment recycling. With one phone call, we were able to schedule a pick-up and get a fair market price for our material. The equipment was picked up within the week, and our payment for the materials was received within 48 hours. H&C Metals was great to work with. Thanks for the great service.  We will be using you again.

I had the great pleasure of working with Ken and this company directly while working on a hotel renovation in the New Jersey area. Being from out of state (DC area), it can sometimes be hard coordinating with other companies however, Ken made it a breeze. He was incredibly kind, professional and easy to work with and also ensured that our projects were finished on time and was very accommodating. I would highly recommend this company to anyone who needs to recycle materials in the Tri-State area.

We received your check yesterday for $300.00. I believe this was the final detail in our claims together. Let me know if you need anything else from me. H&C has been added to our list of favored salvage dealers. We will be in touch if/when the opportunity arises in the future. Thanks very much for working with us on this, and for your patience!

“We have been relying on H&C Metals for many years to provie uninterrupted container service to store our industrial scrap and haul it. From their drivers, to dispatch and management, they are as professional as it gets, offering excellent service, accurate weight, competitive prices & prompt payment.”

“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 and 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.”

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!
