About Us

For over 30 years, DBW Metals Recycling has operated the largest non-ferrous metal recycling location in Orange County. We are conveniently located in Anaheim, near the 57 & 91 freeway where our friendly staff is waiting to receive your material at our 3.5 acre facility.

Founded in 1981 by David B. Williams, a fourth generation scrap dealer, who has developed various processes to allow our customers added benefits of doing business with DBW Metals Recycling. Through our growth, we have continued to upgrade our location to strengthen the customer experience. From our drive-thru CRV center to our designated area for wholesale receiving- it is clear that all customers, big or small, are our focus.

DBW Metals Recycling welcomes material from the public, manufacturers, contractors & industry dealers. There is no job too big for our well trained and experienced staff, most of which offer more than 10 years of service with us.

DBW has been an involved ISRI member for over 20 years. Our president, David B. Williams proudly served as the chapter president from 1997 - 1999. David's dedication to the industry led him to travel the world and establish an extensive network of consumers in Asia to get the best value for our materials. We have a representative in Ningbo, China that seeks out the best markets on a daily basis.

DBW considers the quality of its product to be paramount and therefore we send all material through a rigorous four point inspection process prior to shipment. Annually, we process more than 100 million pounds of non-ferrous scrap metal through our quality assurance procedures by subjecting received material to visual, spark, and acid testing as well as various forms of mechanical analysis. All bales are tagged with a tear-proof TYVEK tag indicating bale weight, commodity and a tracking number. DBW buys material from many West Coast suppliers and all material is evaluated and packaged according to higher West Coast standards.

Our years of experience have taught us how to do business with the Pacific Rim both effectively and efficiently. Our staff is trained to address the needs of customers in the Asian metal market. Our organization has developed internal procedures that expedite shipping and delivery to our customers. DBW is capable of arranging all transportation, with various types of payment, and freight forwarding details for our customers. This includes all procedures pertinent to completing overseas sales accurately and on time.
