Ming's Recycling

Public Buyback

Although most of our recyclables come via curbside pickup and brokerage services, we still offer public buyback services at both of our Sacramento locations. We pay cash for your household recyclables (CRV materials) and non-ferrous metals. Our multilingual staff can assist you in English, Spanish, Chinese, Vietnamese, Hmong, and Mien.
