Gainesville Daily Register
Officials of a longstanding Gainesville company celebrated an expansion of operations with a special ceremony Thursday at the company’s new facility.
Fulton Supply and Recycling Inc., now in its 31st year of business, boasts new equipment and new offices — moved from 700 E. Scott St. to 521 E. Broadway St.
The updated operations include a new set of Fairbanks industrial scales that weigh giant items of scrap metal that customers regularly bring to sell by the ton.
“Without them, we don’t do business,” employee Brent Noles said Monday. “Without the scales, we can’t weigh the products. They’re a vital part of the trade business.”
Noles said the Fulton facility’s updated scale system will make the recycling process — which includes submitting large items such as old vehicles, along with other metal items of wide variety — operate more smoothly.
“It’s just going to benefit the customers and the business as well,” Noles said.
The Fulton company opened locally in 1981. In recent years, Fulton officials reported that approximately 60 percent of the materials brought in for recycling come from Cooke County residents, but customers also come from places such as Wichita Falls, Henrietta and Vernon.
Fulton recycles items include cars with clear titles, tractors, bicycles, motorcycles, four-wheelers, appliances, cans, batteries, fencing, sheet iron, pipe, vehicle parts and microwaves. Televisions, however, are not accepted.
