Direct To Mill


Intermodal Tolling

We strategically positioned C&C Metal Recycling along a 2-spur railroad to enhance our efficiency and minimize our carbon footprint by utilizing rail transport to deliver our recycled materials directly to the mill whenever feasible, thereby reducing the number of trucks on the road. This not only decreases truck traffic and carbon emissions but also enables us to efficiently supply national and international mills with ferrous and non-ferrous material, securing the best prices for materials that we can confidently pass on to our customer.

Rail vs Highway

Using railroad transport for metal materials is better for the environment than sending them via truck for several reasons:

  1. Reduced Carbon Emissions: Trains are more fuel-efficient than trucks, emitting fewer greenhouse gases per ton-mile of freight transported. This means lower carbon emissions overall, contributing to mitigating climate change.
  2. Less Traffic Congestion: By using rail transport, C&C Metal Recycling reduces the number of trucks on the road, alleviating traffic congestion and reducing the risk of accidents. This leads to smoother traffic flow and less time spent idling in traffic, further lowering emissions.
  3. Lower Fuel Consumption: Trains consume less fuel per ton-mile compared to trucks, making rail transport more energy-efficient. This reduces the demand for fossil fuels and helps conserve natural resources.
  4. Longer Distances Covered: Railroads are particularly efficient for transporting goods over long distances. By utilizing rail transport, C&C Metal Recycling efficiently moves materials to mills located farther away, reducing the need for multiple shorter truck journeys.
  5. Best Pricing in Bulk:  C&C Metal Recycling direct to mill via rail sometimes secures a better price for the material which we can pass on to our customers.

Overall, utilizing rail transport for metal materials is a more sustainable choice, aligning with C&C Metal Recycling’s commitment to reducing its environmental footprint, promoting responsible resource management, and securing the best prices to pay their customers.
