We’ve had a crazy couple months at Upstate!  But don’t get us wrong, crazy isn’t always a bad thing!  Business has been booming with the prices of copper and aluminum on the rise, but we’ve also taken on a fairly huge project. When we say fairly huge, we mean almost giant.

Case and point:

Over the past few weeks we have been busy cutting down the water tower on the corner of Carroll and Lima Roads.  This water tower could hold up to 400,000 gallons of water at a time, but unfortunately its water holding days are over.  With no use for the tower, it was time to demolish. At first, Upstate’s owner, Marty Henry was apprehensive about involving the press because of liability issues.  But to all of our surprise, the press made their appearance without any help from the business. WANE TV even caught the tower tumbling on video! Thankfully, the water tower came down without any issues and work started immediately.

Check out the video footage! Water Tower Tumble

It’s nice to know that the Fort Wayne/Huntertown areas are trying their best to keep the business local. Thanks, Fort Wayne!

It’s safe to say that the month of August was good to us!  Upstate Metal Recycling had a record breaking month in the scrap industry. On top of the successful scraptastic month, copper and aluminum prices are on the rise. This not only is this encouraging to business, but it also gives those customer’s a bigger incentive to keep scrapping.
