Scott Stolberg, president and CEO, A&A Midwest Recycling notes that thieves have been known to steal copper pipes from air conditioning units, plumbing pipes from unfinished construction projects and copper wire from street lamps.
"Due to the worldwide demand for metals like copper, thieves are on the prowl for opportunities to commit metal theft against homes and businesses,"
The "Metal Theft Prevention Guide," includes information about the common items thieves look to steal, precautions to follow to protect your home or business, how metal theft victims can team up with law enforcement agencies, prosecutors, and recyclers to help prevent metal theft, prevention guidelines to prevent employee metal theft, and information on the ISRI Scrap Theft Alert.
A&A Midwest Recycling works with Las Vegas area businesses to help prevent metal theft. The company purchases aluminum, brass, cast iron, copper or stainless steel scrap metal. In addition, they will also buy engines, transmissions, wheels (steel and aluminum) or radiators as well as whole vehicles or construction equipment, running or not. The company can also properly recycle cardboard and aluminum cans. With qualified orders, A&A Midwest Recycling will pick up these materials at a business location, pay the owner for them and haul them away.
