-- Company maximizes return on metal value for manufacturers --
WAUSAU, Wis., May 9, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The recycling division of Wausau Steel Corporation announces its name change to Wausau Scrap and Recycling Corporation.
The change reflects the core business operations that remain after Wausau Steel Corporation, a privately held company, closed the sale of its steel division to O'Brien Steel Service Company of Peoria, Ill.
"We've come full circle from our beginnings as a scrap company in 1951," says President Peter Wallach, whose family continues to own the newly named entity. "The steel division sale allows us to focus on our core recycling business to improve and expand services to our industrial and consumer customers with a continued commitment to green best practices."
Wausau Scrap and Recycling serves metal fabricators, manufacturers, scrap metal dealers, the general public, and scrap metal buyers. It supports the efficient flow of raw materials from the production floor to scrap containers for maximizing return on metal value for manufacturers. The company processes all major ferrous and non-ferrous materials.

"We meet or exceed all state and federal guidelines for environmental compliance," says Wallach.
The company's 30 employees continue to work in the same location at 2900 West Sherman Street in Wausau. Recycling services are open to the public, Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
