Trademark Metals Recycling – Why Work For Us?

At Trademark Metals Recycling, we strive to be good neighbors, good stewards of the environment and a great place to do business. Our employees, customers, communities and environment deserve nothing less than our very best every day. We take pride in our company commitment to the:

  • Culture of safety. A goal of zero accidents. Ever.
  • Culture of environmental awareness. Because scrap yards help save the Earth.
  • Culture of integrity. We follow strict standards for what materials we will accept.
  • Culture of giving back. Supporting the communities in which we work and live.

Neighborhood Outreach

We strive to be a good neighbor in the communities in which we do business. For example, all our facilities support local community fire departments, providing space and vehicles for firefighters training with “Jaws of Life”.

We work with fire and police departments, and have developed strong community partnerships with programs like:
Safer for the planet. And your neighborhood.

Of all the relationships we’ve built since 1996, we are most proud of our work with local law enforcement.  All across the nation, our employees are teaming up with local police officers and elected officials to tackle the important issue of combating metal theft. For starters, we digitally record every single transaction in our facilities. Police use this information to identify suspects and help keep crime out of our communities.

Working with communities…and the people who protect them.

We are deeply rooted in the communities where we do business and are respected for our integrity. Community residents and leaders know we have strict standards for what materials we’ll accept at our facilities. For example, we have the most comprehensive radiation detection system in the industry and have received awards for our performance in this field.

We make it easy for customers to drop off ferrous or nonferrous scrap and get paid quickly and reliably. We also help communities maximize their tax base, while minimizing their local environmental footprint.
Serving those who serve and protect.

At TMR, we recognize the pressures and challenges employees face when trying to balance work and home life.  We also understand that our employees are better able to meet the demands of their jobs when their own personal needs are being met.
Because we value the time employees commit to our team, we offer competitive compensation including bonus opportunities and an excellent benefits package:
  • Company sponsored 401(k) plan with company match and additional company retirement contributions
  • Medical and Dental coverage for employees and their dependents, including preventive care
  • Life Insurance
  • Disability Coverage
  • Paid Holidays
  • Paid Vacation
  • Employee Monthly Stock Investment Plan with company match
  • Flexible Spending Accounts
  • Employee Assistance Program

Why Should YOU Choose Trademark Metals Recycling?

When we – the nearly 375 employees of TMR – look at scrap, we don’t see heaps of rusty, old metal. We see potential. Potential for shiny new cars and appliances. Potential for affordable feedstock for production. And of course, for conserving energy and creating a cleaner environment. Then we go to work, harnessing all that potential with the best technology in the business.

Join Our Team of Proud and Passionate Team Players

Working here creates a sense of loyalty. Maybe it’s because we know we’re making a real difference in the world…in our communities…for our customers…and for the environment. We’re passionate about our business and about building relationships that stand the test of time. We’re hands-on self-starters who thrive on opportunities, challenges and have a strong work ethic. And of course, we’re competitive. Yet first and foremost, we’re team players.

    I have been working at Trademark Metals Recycling full-time


    TMR is a unique environment. Scrap metal is not the first place most people dream of working, but it’s not a bad field to be at all. It’s fast-paced with new challenges every day to keep you excited and interested. Management empowers its teammates with a high degree of independence and trust to make their own decisions. Corporate culture is relaxed with a very friendly and family feel. TMR is very big on promoting form within and developing its teammates skills so that can advance as far as they want.


    Scrap metal is not the most glamorous job and it involves a lot of time outside.

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Trademark Metals Recycling (Tampa, FL) in May 2018.


    Disorganized and unprofessional. Was mislead to believe that I had secured a position and even received a written offer on company letterhead. I then proceeded to resign from my current role with the intention of joining TMR. A day or so later, I was informed that they had rescinded their offer. This left me unemployed!
