About American Zinc Recycling

American Zinc Recycling (AZR) leads the industry as an integrated producer of zinc, zinc oxide and zinc powder from recycled sources. Each year, we recycle thousands of tons of zinc-containing electric arc furnace dust and secondary materials, batteries, nickel bearing waste and other metals.

New Jersey Zinc Company and St. Joe Resources Company date back to the mid 1800s. American Zinc Recycling was established in 2003 and acquired portions of their assets.

The Company was renamed American Zinc Recycling in 2017 and is based in Pittsburgh, PA. INMETCO, located in Ellwood City, PA, was acquired in 2009, and Zochem, Inc., located in Brampton, Ontario, was acquired in 2011.

American Zinc Recycling’s subsidiaries operate seven strategically located facilities throughout the United States and Canada.

AZR is a leading recycler of electric arc furnace dust along with other metal-bearing materials, and a leading United States producer of specialty zinc and zinc-based products. INMETCO, LLC. is a leading processor of nickel-bearing wastes in North America, recycling thousands of tons of nickel, chromium, iron, molybdenum and cadmium-bearing wastes each year.
