USA Recycling Industries (USRI) Gains Major Benefits From Earth Metal Scrap USA

|Includes: USA Recycling Industries, Inc. (USRI)

When USA Recycling Industries acquired majority interest in Earth Metal Scrap USA, Inc. (NYSE:EMS), based in Glen Oak, New York, it gave USA Recycling access to a new portfolio of end users, as well as increased leverage when negotiating with scrap metal traders. With EMS they gained a well-founded operating recycling business, with an international network of sources and destinations.

EMS is an international trading company, operating since 1994, serving customers in 19 countries via offices in North America, India, and United Arab Emirates. A leader in the recycling industry, they help customers identify and process materials, and are popular for being able to pay good prices for their purchases. They offer recycling services, logistics services, on-site inspection, scrap metal processing, plant dismantling, scrap metal collection, and removal consulting.

EMS purchases scrap from manufacturers, service centers, and other nonferrous scrap sources that generate new metal scrap as a by-product of their production processes, such as scrap aluminum, copper, stainless steel, brass, high temperature alloys, and other metals. They also get obsolete scrap from telecommunications, aerospace, defense, demolition and recycling companies that generate scrap consisting primarily of copper wire and exotic metal alloys. Smaller scrap dealers and peddlers deliver directly to EMS facilities. By providing in-plant accumulation bins or truck containers, EMS also collects scrap from working industry and metal service centers.

Incoming scrap material is sorted, graded, and packaged for sale. EMS sells its ferrous, non-ferrous, paper, plastic, rubber scrap products to end-users, with such consumers as refineries, smelters, specialty steel makers, and foundries, throughout the world. Prices for some nonferrous scrap metals change daily based on the COMEX or London Metals Exchange spot and future prices.

EMS is the flagship company of Earth Group of Companies:

• Earth Metal Scrap USA Inc.

• Earth Plastics Inc.

• Earth Minerals Inc.

• Earth Paper Inc.

• Earth Rubber Inc.

• Earth Ship Breaking Inc.
