River Metals Recycling’s 1951 State Avenue Cincinnati facility staff heard WLWT’s story about D.J. Martin – –  a local 9 year old Price Hill resident who had his wheelchair ramp stolen on February 27, and quickly responded by donating a folding ramp on February 28 to help the family.   RMR occasionally used the folding ramp at the State Avenue facility to unload small trailers but wanted to help the family until they get a permanent replacement.River Metals Recycling’s culture and philosophy revolves around being good neighbors in and giving back to the communities in which we do business.  River Metals Recycling (RMR) is the largest scrap recycler in Kentucky and in the greater Cincinnati area, with 9 locations in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio.  RMR’s State Avenue recycling center buys ferrous scrap as well as common household nonferrous scrap metal items like aluminum cans and other aluminum, stainless steel, copper and
brass products.

RMR is headquartered in Crescent Springs, Kentucky and has nearly 300 employees.  RMR is wholly owned by The David J. Joseph Company (DJJ).  Founded in 1885, DJJ is one of the largest scrap brokers/processors in the United States providing scrap brokerage, recycling and transportation services.  DJJ is part of Nucor Corporation’s family of companies.  Headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina, Nucor is the leading purchaser of ferrous scrap and the largest recycler in North America, with operating facilities primarily in the U.S. and Canada.
