We Treat Customers Like Family

Lakeside Auto Recyclers East is a family-run scrap recycling facility that has served customers in Omaha, Nebraska, and Carter Lake and Council Bluffs, Iowa for more than 40 years. Three generations later, we’re in business for our customers, and we’re proud to treat you like we treat our own family.


Over the years, we’ve continually expanded our yard to offer our loyal customers bigger, better and faster service. Today, Lakeside Auto Recyclers is still growing!

Construction is now underway to install a new Hammermill pulverizer shredder, fondly known as “The American.” You’ll also see upgrades to the entire Lakeside yard, including a new outbound scale, four new buildings, and a concrete foundation around the entire processing center. Customers can expect this new shredding facility to be complete in the fall of 2017.

Get bigger payouts for industrial scrap and junk cars

Lakeside Auto Recyclers’ American shredder will not only benefit customers by offering faster, bigger payouts for scrap and junk cars, it also expands our ferrous and nonferrous shredding capabilities to include industrial and commercial accounts.

Compared to our competitors, Lakeside Auto Recyclers offers industrial clients a friendly, local approach, and a commitment to personal service, with no waiting and no contracts.

About our Progress

The American will expand Lakeside’s capabilities to process ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metals faster and more efficiently than ever.

The American shredder is a 2,000 horsepower Hammermill model that yields a higher processing rate of nearly 30-tons per hour. Thanks to its two-phase processing system and an adjacent fine-separation building, having The American on site will mean more profits for industrial customers who want the maximum return cash value.
