NEW YORK — Universal Scrap Metals Inc. (USM) has added a 60,000-square-foot indoor recycling facility in Georgetown, Ky.

The investment includes recycling equipment purchased from St. Louis-based Anheuser-Busch Recycling Corp., which had occupied the facility since 2009, the Chicago-based company told AMM. The equipment is designed to decontaminate off-specification used beverage containers (UBCs) for processing at aluminum smelting facilities.

"The facility is a newer and bigger model of what we already do in Chicago," chief operating officer Pat Madison said. "It’s a location that is more advantageous geographically. ... Overall, we think this opportunity allows us to grow our operations."

The new unit, operating under the name USM Alumacycle LLC, became fully operational Feb. 1, Madison said.

USM offers a full range of scrap management services and scrap handling equipment throughout the United States. The company operates in eight locations throughout the metropolitan Chicago area, central Illinois and Kentucky.
