River City Recycling, which buys, processes and sells scrap metal, last week opened a 25,000-square-foot warehouse in Manchester. It’s the third location the young company has opened in the past 10 months.
The new location at 1104 Gordon Ave. gives people a place to drop off aluminum cans, old appliances, pipes and anything else that can be melted down and refurbished.
“Fifteen years ago, all of this would have been in a landfill,” said Marty Williams, a consultant for the company. “Now landfill space is at such a premium, you really have to reserve it for materials that absolutely cannot be recycled.”
