Schnitzer’s Pick-n-Pull to enter Rhode Island

PITTSBURGH — Schnitzer Steel Industries Inc. subsidiary Pick-n-Pull plans to enter the Rhode Island market in the near future.

The board of Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corp., which manages solid waste and recyclables in the state, approved the sale of a 10-acre parcel to Pick-n-Pull on May 13, a spokesman for the agency confirmed.

Portland, Ore.-based Schnitzer’s auto recycling business will use the property to decommission vehicles and sell used auto parts. The company has a metals recycling operation in Johnston, R.I., and vehicles can eventually be shipped from Pick-n-Pull to the shredder there.

There is no timetable on when the facility will open.

"Schnitzer is very pleased with (the board’s) decision and looks forward to opening its first Pick-n-Pull used auto parts store in Rhode Island," a spokesman told AMM.

Pick-n-Pull has 60 locations in the United States and Canada and recycles about 325,000 vehicles annually.
