About Madison

Alter Trading has been a Midwest, family owned company that has been in the metal recycling business since 1898. The facility located on Madison's eastside, was first established in 1960 and was formerly known as Samuel's Recycling. In December of 2006, Samuels was acquired by Alter Metals and has since grown into one of the largest scrap recyclers in the industry.

Madison's facility is led by plant manager Chad Awbrey and regional marketing manager Randy Bollig. Herschel Porter leads our operation in the yard. This experienced team is committed to providing our customers with the industry's best service.

The Alter Madison facility recycles all types of ferrous and non-ferrous materials and serves the general public, commercial, industrial and municipal accounts. Capabilities include:

  • Certified digital scales
  • Auto Shredder
  • Yard baler
  • Shear to process ferrous materials
  • Variety of non-ferrous processing capabilities

More importantly, Alter Madison values each of their customers and the relationships created with them. We will help unload your scrap, answer questions, and provide helpful information on each visit.

By providing the Madison community an outlet to recycle metal, Alter has kept millions of pounds of material from being dumped in landfills. Alter is always looking for opportunities to give back to the community.

Alter Madison would like to thank our local plumbers, electricians, roofers, homeowners, both small business & corporate accounts. Because of them, we are able to continue our service to the community. We look forward to our continued business together.
