Combined Metal Industries Inc.

Industrial Strength Scrap Solutions

Our Promise

Forget everything you think you know about scrap metal recyclers.

That’s what we did when we started CMI some 20 years ago, and our continued success can be directly attributed to our desire to be unlike all the other scrap metal companies.

It comes down to two things. First is keeping your interests on the same level as our own, and second is creating the infrastructure and empowering our people to make it happen.

Can you expect honesty and transparency when dealing with us? Absolutely. Environmental stewardship? Without a doubt. Accountability? Of course, but there’s more to us than that.

When you work with CMI, you’re partnering with a company that is utterly obsessed with doing everything it can to do everything better for you and the environment - from the first load forward.

So hang on. The best is yet to come. And that’s a promise!

The CMI Team

From day one, everyone who works at CMI will also be working for you. Trust is a fragile thing, after all, and it’s understood that in order to build it we must all be diligent in ensuring that our actions and outcomes are transparent, ethical and nothing short of extraordinary. This is paramount to both our brand and our culture.

We’re not just here to maximize your scrap revenues. We also want you to receive a healthy return on your investment in us. And we’ll do everything we can to make that happen.

Thinking outside the bin

If we’ve learned anything, it’s that there is no one right way to do anything, because different industries and situations require custom-tailored solutions. And while technology can go a long way towards helping us realize more efficient and effective ways of processing your scrap, it’s not the only means at our disposal. People and process can be innovative as well, and we should know.

Trying to revive an antiquated business model by sticking a piece of technology on top doesn’t do anyone any favours. Our competitors have taught us that.

At CMI, however, innovation - the ability to identify issues and invent solutions - is in our DNA. It’s simply who we are. And in a world that’s spinning at 1000 miles an hour, that’s precisely what your business needs.


At CMI, we’ve done everything we can to make sure that when it comes to the complex world of logistics, the buck stops with us. That’s why we designed the most rugged containers in the industry, and support them with 24/7/365 dispatch and service.

Our advanced fleet capabilities - modern, reliable and owned by CMI - and rail services keep everything moving like clockwork. Our proprietary software provides immediate reporting, with onsite telemetric monitoring and GPS tracking so we always know what’s going on, where and why.

Environmental Stewardship

While it’s true that industrial businesses are heavily scrutinized for their environmental practices, it’s also true that the people who work for them want to live in a healthier world.

The quality of the environment is a concern that connects us all, and is particularly near and dear to our hearts at CMI. That’s why we consistently take the lead when it comes to innovations such as paving our yards with an artificial surface to safely catch and collect waste oils and byproducts for recycling.

We’re always looking for ways to improve how we process metals to ensure that nothing that can be repurposed ever goes to waste, and that can make a world of difference.


We will always be transparent in both our actions and intentions. We will treat you, your employees and your operations with the utmost respect, and always conduct business in a responsible, direct and ethical manner.

We place safety and environmental protection at the top of our list of priorities, and have the processes and procedures in place to instill confidence in our clients, and a sense of purpose in our people.
