The Roots of ARR

From humble beginnings to a newly remodeled facility, ARR West Allis represents where it all began for ARR. Founded in 1938 by Donald Rehberg, we’ve come a long way from the little junkyard in West Allis and have grown to become Wisconsin’s leader in recycling.

Our secret to success is great customer service. We employ friendly and knowledgeable staff and state-of-the-art electronic scales to serve you accurately and fairly.
