Q: I’ve never been to Bee Green Recycling… How does the process work?
A: You roll onto our scale through our “Scale Entrance.” We weigh you, then give you a ticket, and then direct you to the appropriate area to offload whatever materials you have. Additionally, depending on the amount and type of materials, we either unload your scrap by hand, by magnet or by crane (the claw). You then pull back through and get weighed again, and take your updated ticket to our cashier. We will know exactly what you brought, and pay you appropriately for your materials.
Q: Do I need to bring any ID?
A: Yes. We record information for every load that comes into Bee Green Recycling.
Q: Can I bring you stolen goods?
A: No. Don’t even try it. We regularly communicate with local police departments, and keep detailed records of everything you bring us. Don’t waste your time. We report our daily loads and customers to the police nightly.
