For Over 30 years

River City  Steel  & Recycling  has been supplying South Texas with their steel needs. We carry a large inventory  of  steel products as well as secondary  steel.
We are also one of the  largest recycling yards in the region, recycling thousands of tons of scrap per year.


Established in 1982 by Alton S. Newell, founder of Newell Recycling and developer of the first scrap metal shredder. 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 more than 3 decades 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.


We’re committed to providing you with fast, friendly, and courteous service.

Our team is highly skilled and has years of experience. Most of all, they are passionate about what they do. Our mission is to provide you with honesty, integrity, and great customer service. That is what sets us apart from other scrap metal recycling yards.
