Atlantic Recycling Group, LLC
Atlantic Recycling Group, LLC (ARG) is a holding company comprised of mid-Atlantic region metal recycling operations, including Montgomery Scrap Corporation in Rockville, MD and United Iron & Metal, LLC in Baltimore, MD. ARG also owns M-Scrap Transportation Services, LLC which provides hauling for all ARG companies.
The Millstone family started Montgomery Iron & Metal Co. in Rockville, Maryland in 1949. From its original location on Route 355, the business moved to its current location on Southlawn Lane in the early 1970’s to make way for the Metro Rail. The name of the business was changed slightly to Montgomery Scrap Corp. to emphasize the company’s ability to handle more than just metal products. At one time, MSC was the largest paper recycler in the state.
The Shapiro family opened their recycling business on Wilkens Avenue in 1912 under the name United Iron & Metal. The Baltimore-based company became a recycling pioneer in being one of the first yards to own and successfully operate an automobile shredder, which is now the standard equipment used by iron & steel recyclers. Under the ownership of ARG, United Iron & Metal re-opened the Pulaski Highway yard in east Baltimore to provide more convenience for its customers.
In 2006, the non-ferrous Maryland leader Montgomery Scarp merged with Baltimore ferrous recycling specialists, United Iron & Metal, creating the Atlantic Recycling Group. ARG provides custom services, buys, sells, and transports metal of all types, sizes, and quantities, creating a unique and successful edge in today’s competitive market.
