Recycling Pioneers

In 1898, Kalman and Jacob Staiman, immigrant brothers, settled in Elmira, NY. Two years later, they relocated to Williamsport, PA and recognizing the need for recycling in their new home, founded Staiman Brothers. In the beginning, the company specialized in the processing of ferrous and non-ferrous materials and wastepaper. Four generations of  Staimans (the current company President is the great-grandson of Kalman) and 114 years later, this prominent recycling company is still privately held and continues to evolve. The company's current headquarters were built after a fire in 1955 destroyed the original Center Street offices.

As the need for recycling has grown, so have the Staiman businesses. In 1996, Staiman Recycling Corporation was formed and in 2013 Staiman Recyling, NY was added. Today, Staiman Recycling Corporation serves the needs of the ferrous and non-ferrous recycling and process industry; Staiman Brothers, Inc. continues to serve the paper and, most recently, the Staiman Recycling NY Inc. services recyclers in New York State.

Over the past century, Staiman has consistently supplied customers with quality material by processing thousands of tons of ferrous and non-ferrous metals and wastepaper each year. As in the early years, Staiman relies on a dedicated workforce to meet company goals and standards. However, modern technology is required to keep up with the demands of today's fast-paced world. Staiman utilizes various types of equipment to make quick work of what used to be a time consuming and manual labor-intensive process. Our privately owned commercial fleet of trucks assures that pick-ups and deliveries are made in a timely manner to ensure the flow of product. From there cranes, front-end loaders, forklifts, Bobcats/skid steers easily move materials throughout the yard to processing stations. Metal and paper materials are baled and loaded into containers quickly and efficiently. Most impressive are the shears. With two hydraulic guillotine shears, 500 ton and 1,000 ton stationed in the yard and a 1,300 ton mobile Genesis shear, steel is processed quickly for shipments to our consumers throughout the eastern United States, Canada, and overseas.

Expansion has also come in the form of finding additional locations to obtain and process materials. The Newberry Rail Division is located just a few miles from the Williamsport facility and material is easily processed and transported daily from both facilities. To serve the needs of the southeastern part of the state and surrounding areas better, the Hanover Division was created and is a full-service yard open six days a week.

The Best Is Yet To Come 

Obviously, this is just a brief outline of our company history and current operations. We plan on maintaining our position as the premier recycler in central Pennsylvania for many years to come. There is much Staiman history yet to be written and many changes to be made as the industry continues to expand and change. If you would like to learn more about Staiman Brothers, Inc. and the Staiman Recycling Corporation, please feel free to contact us. We welcome the opportunity to hear from you and share with you the benefits of being a member of the Staiman team.
