Our Story

As one of the oldest local businesses in the Wyandotte area, we attribute our reputation to the lasting customer relationships we’ve developed throughout the years. We believe that all of our customers deserve the highest level of service, and we are committed to providing just that. This business was founded by Rose Wojtala and originally began during the depression, for a woman well ahead of her time, she brought recycling Metal into Wyandotte and into your local neighborhood. The business continues today, her son, Albert Wojtala (pictured) still owns the business today at 90 yrs old.
