Charlotte-based E-Metals Metal and Electronic Recycling Inc. will open a metal and electronics recycling center by mid-May at 235 Timber Road in Mooresville.
The facility will pay for steel, copper wiring, cars, aluminum, computers, car batteries, circuit loads, transformers, cell phones, computer towers and monitors, refrigerators and washers and dryers.
“Anything with a plug,” owner Kevin Agnew told the Mooresville Board of Commissioners at an April 2 public hearing on his request for a permit to operate the facility.
Commissioners voted unanimously on April 16 to grant the permit.
Most of the operation will be in an existing building on the 1.76 acres, although bins may be added to separate specific types of materials. No materials will be processed on site, Agnew said. They will be hauled away daily to any of 10 Charlotte area processing facilities, he said.
The new E-Metals site “will provide an environmentally safe avenue for local businesses and citizens to recycle all electronics, metals, corrugated cardboard” and other items, Agnew said in his permit application.
“E-Metals will be hiring local workers,” he said. “Also, we will provide a way for local citizens to supplement their income by recycling.”
