The Cleveland Corporation is a full service, family-owned and operated recycling company, servicing the Chicago, Milwaukee and Midwestern Region for the past 60 years. In 1955, the founder Joseph Kujawinski Sr. started the company with little more than a 2-ton lift gate truck working a barrel route. Picking up scrap metal from industrial accounts seven days a week, at a time when much of the industrial metals were being disposed of for no value. His relentless dedication and work ethic have been passed along to his sons, Robert and Joe Jr., who now lead our corporation into the future.
The company has since expanded to a state of the art twelve-acre site located in Zion, Illinois, equipped with environmentally compliant equipment to handle several thousand tons of industrial scrap metal per month, as well as waste paper and cardboard.
Peace of mind. To assure our customers their scrap is hauled & processed in compliance with all Federal and State Environmental Laws.
Cleveland Corporation has the capacity to accommodate small commercial and residential customers.
