Dear Tom:
I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your help in restoring our warehouse to usable space and to tell you how pleased we were with your help and the professionalism of Rockaway Recycling.

Your driver, Jim, is first rate and really knows his business. It was a pleasure working with him and we appreciate the fact that he, and you, made the process much quicker and much easier than we expected.

You said what you would do and did what you said. I could ask no more of anyone and we thank you for that..

Thank you for your help.

Best regards,

First I wanted to let you know that I have received your invoice for the work that your crew did last week. We cut checks on Thursday, so the check will be in the mail this Friday. Secondly I wanted to thank you for the terrific job that your crew did. the building looks so much better without that old structure on the
roof. Your crew did an amazing job of cutting up the structure and getting it off the roof. I could not have imagined that the job could have gone any smoother.

Thanks so much,

Elaine from Bellmore, NY

Dear Rockaway Recycling:

I am so impressed with your entire business operation that I had to write. I just wish that you had a site near us on Long Island! Your website has taught me much about “scrapping,” and you project a GREAT and WELCOMING attitude toward “scrappers” such as me. I am especially impressed with your charitable giving! I am a very small-scale scrapper, just cashing in on stuff from our garage and attic that has accumulated over the last 40 years of our marriage (and still counting), but every little bit helps, especially in this economy. Because we are not near you, I go to a local scrap yard, and they are very nice. I think the guys there cannot believe that this 62 year old retired lady keeps coming in with her solid brass lamps, faucets and door knobs, as well as miscellaneous steel stuff!

Wishing you all the best!
Bellmore, NY

Just confirms how we feel about you folks……first class, and decent in every way. Runners are dedicated, mild mannered people who create very few problems in this world. Your prayers and concern are most refreshing and uplifting. We have watched your Business advance, and just get better and better. We always enjoy our visit with you and your crew, and, we tell our friends the same. See you soon. (Referring to email about Boston Marathon Bombings, and Rockaway Recycling’s thoughts with the victims)

Peace, Strength and Courage to all at “The Rock”. Well Done.

Various Customers

I find Rockaway (Recycling) a very clean operation to scrap with. The people are helpful and charity work is great.
– Joe

I only have small things to bring occasionally…but everytime I go…i get the same treatment as if I was bringing in hundreds of pounds…fast…friendly and fair ….very happy
– David

To Rockaway Recycling is the most professional place I’ve ever been to. Courtesy is paramount! Joe is great. They get you in and out in a flash. Can’t say enough good about them. Been to other yards years ago and never got a receipt for my scrap. They hide nothing. Very helpful. I’ve been telling everyone I see to go and see them. Keep up the good work! The best prices, fast, courteous and professional says it all. Highly recommend to all my friends. Definitely will be back again and again.
– Bob

You guys need to open a recycling facility here in Nashville, Tennessee. I’m amazed at your videos. You actually educate the scrappers so they can make more money. I realize that this makes your job easier when the scrappers have everything properly separated. Great Job. – Jim M., YouTube Fan
