River Metals Recycling (RMR), the largest scrap recycler in Kentucky and in the greater Cincinnati area, initiated a unique avenue to recycle scrap metal while supporting the Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center.  RMR donated recycled brass, stainless steel, and copper materials used by Northern Kentucky high school art students to build a pinwheel-themed indoor/outdoor water feature and wind chimes.  The wind chimes and water feature were auctioned at a March 1 fundraiser benefiting the Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center (NKYCAC).  The event raised $95,000 for NKYCAC.

In 2013, the NKYCAC served nearly 750 children in a coordinated response to child abuse.  This non-profit is the only Children’s Advocacy Center in Northern Kentucky and is recognized as a center of Excellence by the National Children’s alliance.

The recycled materials donation is just one of many examples of River Metals Recycling’s corporate social responsibility.  RMR supports a wide range of organizations through local investments, donations and volunteer efforts.  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.
