Meet Neal

Louisville, KY

River Metals Recycling is an organization that exemplifies a core standard of values and is committed each and every day to adhering to these values. We have a structure that zero accidents is the only acceptable goal and the well being of each team member will never be compromised. I joined the team because of these standards and its pursuit of taking care of our customers while being cultural and environmental stewards of our communities.

Meet Jeff

Somerset, KY

I came to DJJ and River Metals looking for an opportunity to be part of a well-respected world leader in the scrap industry who would allow me to grow, and develop professionally. I stay with DJJ and RMR for the entrepreneurial spirit and the freedom of running the business, as well as the challenges that come with it.

Meet Cassandra

Newport, KY

I have been given the good fortune to work for and advance within a sound company like RMR. Since 2010, when my first role was the kiosk operator in the non-ferrous department at RMR Newport, I have learned so much and gained a great deal of experience. After becoming an accomplished kiosk operator, I made recommendations in selected areas including safety programs, time management, production and efficiency.
