Meredith Used Car Sales & Recycling is owned and operated by Roy & Melissa Meredith of Montrose, Missouri.
Lifelong residents of Henry County, Roy and Melissa have worked hard to grow their business from a “one-man” operation to an organization with several employees.
Since 1996, Meredith Recycling has been providing customers with a convenient and reliable method for recycling their unwanted metals. Meredith Recycling buys both ferrous (steel) and non-ferrous metals (aluminum, copper, etc.) Recently, Meredith Recycling has begun recycling electronics. This helps to keep recyclables out of the landfill, providing a cleaner environment for all.
In late 2010, the non-ferrous department, as well as the office, moved into a new and larger building. Non-ferrous customers are now able to unload their recyclables under a
roof, protected from the elements. So no matter what the weather (rain, snow, or scorthing summer sun) you are protected.
In the Fall of 2012 the unloading area for ferrous metals was tripled in size. It now encompasses 26,000 square feet of concrete surface for unloading customers. The concrete surface is swept multiple times a day to keep the area free from nails and other hazards. Also in the summer of 2013 Meredith Recycling added a fluid removal system for vehicles. Customers are no longer responsible for removing fluids from vehicles before bringing them in for recycling.
Meredith Recycling is active in the community. They have supported many school, church, and community activities. Vehicles have been provided to the Montrose and Appleton City Fire Departments so they may practice life saving techniques. Meredith Recycling provides funds, services, and man-power for the Montrose Festival, the Deepwater Labor and Harvest Picinic, and the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church Labor Day Dinner. When the snow falls, Meredith Recycling helps dig everyone out, clearing driveways and streets with their loaders. In addition, Meredith Recycling has assisted area schools and youth clubs with recycling fundraisers.
Meredith Recycling is a member of ISRI (the Institute for Scrap Recycling Industries), NFIB (National Federation of Independent Business), and the Missouri Farm Bureau. Roy Meredith serves on the Quad Lakes Solid Waste Management Advisory Board, a division of the Kaysinger-Basin Regional Planning Commision.
