River Metals Recycling’s (RMR) Owensboro, Kentucky facility contributed to flights to Honor Flight Network, which honors America’s Veterans – – especially WWII Vets – – for all their sacrifices. The organization coordinates flights taking Veterans to Washington DC to visit and reflect at their memorials. While visiting, these honored veterans are thanked, recognized, and admired for their years of service and sacrifices.
The RMR contribution helped provide transportation, food, and lodging assistance for veterans, so they could enjoy a safe, memorable and rewarding experience. This is an example of how RMR’s work in local communities has the power to radiate far and wide. This commitment to the communities in which RMR operates is not just a program or a donation; it’s the way RMR does business every day.
River Metals Recycling is the largest scrap recycler in Kentucky and in the greater Cincinnati area, with 9 locations in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio. RMR buys common household ferrous and nonferrous scrap metal items like appliances, sheet metal, automobiles, aluminum cans and other aluminum, copper and brass products.
