Welcome to Roane Metals Group

Roane Metals Group is so much more than a metal recycling facility or local scrap dealer. Sure, we buy, sell, and salvage metal but we also strive to be stewards in environmentalism and take great pride in ensuring a cleaner, greener tomorrow for our East Tennessee community.

We buy ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metal directly from the public, as well as, from industrial and commercial scrap metal sellers. While curbside recycling programs are a fantastic addition to any municipality, we step in with higher value scrap metal such as copper, lead, and aluminum. If it’s metal, there’s a good chance we recycle it.
