    Recycling Experience

    by First Time Recycler , 09/17/2009

    I recently brought my recycling to this facility and found the employees to be very helpful and friendly. This was a very pleasant experience.

    Great experience

    by John carpenter , 05/31/2010

    These guy's are fast, reliable and friendly. On top of that they paid more than anyone else. The new facility in Gilberts is great.

    Beware of Elgin Recycling/ Dishonest tactics

    by BEWARE , 06/01/2012

    Tell will tell you one thing when requesting a scrap pick up then once they have done it they change the rules and give you nothing. I don't know how these people can sleep at night.Get everything in writing if dealin with this company!!!

    They are theives

    by Larry , 06/25/2013

    They were good when they first opened, but greed has taken over. I took in 79# of cans & only got paid for 61. The guy told me that bathroom scales are inaccuate. I had weighed them on a shipping scale, & it'sclose enoung for UPS, Fedex, USPS, etc. I'm done with recycling, I guess they are all crooks.

    They do not pay for less than 6,000 pounds on a metal pick up.

    by Elgin Recycling , 07/11/2012

    Go elsewhere if you need a scrap pick up. They only pay on more than 6,000 of cast iron for a pick up. The unfortunate thing is that they don't bother to tell you that when you arrange the pick up. They tell you the going rate then you find out after the fact. Mike should have explained those important detail when I called. He offered me 50.00 only because I complained. Stay away from this company.

    Response from Business - 2012-07-17 09:53:29
    We apologize for any miscommunication and assure you our sales staff is trained to be very diligent when setting up pick-up services. If you are unsure your material will meet our requirements for the free pick-up service we will send a sales person to do a free assessment before we setup your pick-up. Due to fuel costs and labor we do have minimum weight requirements, which is 6,000 lbs. for ferrous metal and 600 lbs. for non-ferrous. Elgin Recycling is proud to serve the Chicagoland area and strives to exceed all of our customer expectations. We appreciate your comments and will use them to improve our customer service. If there are further concerns please feel free to contact us at our main number 847-741-4100 or through our website at www.elginrecycling.com.
