Mr. Newell opened River City Steel & Recycling in San Antonio, TX as an outlet for residential and commercial customers to dispose of their unwanted scrap metal. For over 33 years RCS has provided South Texans with quality scrap metal recycling services and steel materials.

Mr. Newell's grandson owns and operates River City Steel & Recycling under the same principles and business practices his grandfather pioneered himself on. At RCS we pride ourselves on honesty, integrity, and top quality customer service.
