Asset Recovery

Generate revenue and significantly reduce the costs associated with your demolition and environmental remediation. EZ Scrap Metal Recycling Services specializes in investment recovery (IR), which helps you do just that. This involves the identification, reuse, or sale of surplus property, equipment, and materials. We are ready to serve you in Chicago, Illinois, and the neighboring areas.


We provide a wide range of services to meet your needs. These services include:

  • Investment Recovery
  • Fair Market Valuations
  • Demolition Investment Recovery (DIR)
  • Inventory Management
  • IR Program Management & Development
  • Demolition Consulting

Our process includes maximizing the value of unused or end-of-life assets through effective reuse, reclamation, or resale. Our asset recovery process has three main parts, which include idle asset identification, redeployment, and divestment. We are committed to obtaining the highest return on idle assets for our clients. When setting up asset recovery reclamation terminals, it is best to ask our experts to evaluate your current asset recovery program and suggest alternatives to reducing waste, increasing recycling, protecting the environment, and increasing salvage revenues while simultaneously enhancing your plant.


Our personnel carefully plan the scope of work and nature of the dismantling services based on the history and products of the subject facility. Our custom dismantling services assure the safety of individuals, as well as protection of the environment and nearby plant operations. We develop a project-specific technical work, health, and safety plan on every project, regardless of size. Employees and clients are invited to provide input into the plans. The plan is designed to be changed through a perpetual life cycle until project completion.


We can turn much of your trash into cash while simultaneously cleaning up your facility. You are able to apply revenues from the cleanup to other projects when working capital is not in the budget.
