Scrap Showdown

River Metals Recycling and the David J. Joseph Company love repurposing metal.

We had a dream of sharing that love with all of Cincinnati and from that dream was born the first DJJ/River Metals Recycling Scrap Showdown in 2015.

Fourteen artists contributed 12 sculptures to our one-day contest held at Cincinnati Earth Day at Sawyer Point that first year.   Five years and 30 sculptures later, we’re returning to our partnership with the Greater Cincinnati Earth Day Coalition to celebrate earth-friendly practices and share a little bit about the world of metal recycling at Summit Park in Blue Ash.
