Tom Plotkin just launched a new listing: Recycling Center - Near LA Harbor

Recycling Center - Near LA Harbor
Asking: $450,000 • Gross: $1,673,792 • Net: $201,193

Rare opportunity to acquire a successful recycling business originally established in 1978.  Since 2010, the current owners have operated the business on a double-lot in a 6000 square foot building located less than 7 miles from the Los Angeles Harbor.

As the recycling center has two hydraulic balers in operation the need for trucks and drivers is minimized. These balers have a resale value of about $100,000 each. Original cost about $250,000 each.

The recycling center holds a Cal Recycle Certification for beverage containers, a Scrap License and a LAPD Junk Dealer License.

Top five recycled items at the center are:

  • Aluminum Cans
  • Plastic Bottles
  • Scrap Copper
  • Scrap Aluminum
  • Scrap Brass

Usually the business has little to none in terms of Accounts Receivable as Processors pay in advance for the baled items.

In order grow the business, a new owner will want to consider applying for a Processors License as the location is well suited for this type of expansion which would generate meaningful, additional revenues. 

Prospective Buyers are asked to provide the Sellers with a Financial Statement and Proof of Funds.

Interested parties register as a buyer at then contact Tom Plotkin at 310 882-2200 x 127 or Arthur Kessler at x 126 for more information.
