Our Story

From our EPA super fund cleanup site, stormwater management system, leading edge LED lighting and an impeccable maintenance program. Simon Metals is committed to our environment and the effects our industry contributes to our carbon footprint we hear so much about.

Simon Metals, LLC, formerly Joseph Simon & Sons, Inc., has been operating continuously on this property since 1967. Prior to that, for many decades, the property and/or adjoining parcels operated as everything from meat packing facilities to coal reclamation operations, known as the Tacoma Tar Pits. Also, Puget Sound Energy inhabited the property for various utility operations in prior years and still operates from an adjoining parcel.

Our Recycling Services

  • Electronics & Precious Metals

    Metro Metals Tacoma focus is in the processing of precious metal recyclables generated in electronics, photographic, jewelry, aerospace and e-waste companies.

  • Ferrous and Non Ferrous

    Ferrous metals include mild steel, carbon steel, stainless steel, cast iron, and wrought iron.

    Non-ferrous metals have a higher resistance to rust and corrosion. Because they contain no iron, they are also non-magnetic.

  • Logistics

    Metro Metals Tacoma experience in the logistics field has only been enhanced by the 80+ years we have been in business.

  • Demolition

    Metro Metals Tacoma has partnered with demolition contractors for decades but in recent years has been working directly with land owners, developers, and trustees, specializing in the removal of ferrous structures, equipment, and industrial site clean ups using our own equipment and expertise.
