Interco recycles non-ferrous metals, and computers and electronics. In addition, the company processes post-industrial plastics and resins as well as baled old corrugated cardboard (OCC). Interco was founded in 1996 as a computer, electronics and precious metals recycler. In response to the request of many suppliers, in 2005 Interco entered the non-ferrous metals recycling market after nearly ten years as major international recycler.
Non Ferrous Metals
Interco buys and trades and recycles a broad range of non-ferrous metals. It recycles non-ferrous metals. The company also processes minerals and industrial byproducts including:
- Copper/Iron Materials
- Red Metals & Residues
- White Metals & Residues
- Computers & Electronics

Interco manages the recycling efforts of industrial accounts — manufacturers, processors, distributors, wholesalers — from its 250,000 square foot facility on its 25-acre, three-building compound. Consequently, the company processes materials on-site by hand and with industrial machinery. Material is baled and packaged according to commodity and grade for end consumers.
Smelters, refineries, ingot makers, and other industrial clients utilize the material in a variety of manners and industries. As a result, the company provides millions of pounds of material each year to these consumers.
Junkyards, scrap yards, scrap dealers, salvage yards, pick-a-part vendors go to Interco. Most noteworthy, other recycling material facilities take their nonferrous scrap to Interco in loads of all sizes. However, unlike many other large recycling facilities, the facility receives mixed loads of materials. The company also receives straight loads by the van trailer or dump truck. As long as the materials are clearly sorted, receivers will accept up to 40 different items on a single truck load.
