I am coming to the scrap yard to deliver some items, how does it work?

If this is your first visit:

  • Turn off Midlothian Turnpike into our driveway
  • Drive across the big red truck scale and STOP at the sign
  • An attendant will waive to the correct location for unloading
  • Our employees will unload your items, do a basic sort and weight them per family of material (to expedite service, when you load you can presort the items)
  • An attendant will ask you for your ID and write you vehicle information
  • Once done, drive to the front of the building
  • Bring in your ID
  • Calculate your ticket and give you cash
You only need to have your picture taken once

Does Nott Recycling buy vehicles?

No we do not buy vehicles at this time. We do buy car parts as scrap metal. Please check the list of items we buy

Who is the cute looking one?

This is Copper who joined us in June 2015, he loves to play with his toys. I am very curious and friendly, sometimes a little too excited to see you. I may bring you my ball and drop it in front of you expecting you to play with me, just throw it and I will catch it. Don’t give it to me! He is nice as long as one of our employees are around!

See what else I am up to
