OUR BACK STORY
"Butch" Levell, Sr.
Levell’s Auto Parts
In 1960 at age 19, Fred “Butch” Levell, Sr. bought a tow truck for $100 and started a business on 5th and Locust in Carter Lake called “Levell’s Auto Parts.”
Original Fire in the Belly
In the early days, the best way to get copper and other recyclables from old cars was to burn the cars out and snip out what was left after the fire.
Lakeside Auto Recyclers was Born – 1977
In 1977, Lakeside Auto Recyclers was founded when Butch Levell, Sr., opened up a new shop on 9th and Locust that focused on auto parts only.
In 2000, a scale was installed and on site recycling began.
In 2015, Lakeside discontinued the parts business and became a full on scrap recycling facility.
Lakeside Auto Recyclers is owned and operated by Mike Jr. and Mike Sr., as a 10 acre, third-generation, family-owned business out to SHRED THE WORLD.
“Passion and loyalty is what drives us, to be the best scrap yard in the area. Helping customers and employees to have a great experience while making money is what sets Lakeside apart from the rest!”
– Mike Levell, Jr.
