In 1989, after visiting an equipment auction in New Dundee, Ontario, Bill and Irene Kropf recognized an opportunity within the recycling industry. Dundee Recycling began as a small operation, recycling materials in an environmentally conscious manner, and with a lot of hard work they experienced incredible growth within the first few years of business. In the early 1990’s their relocation to Bridge St. enabled them to better serve the community and surrounding areas.
At Dundee Recycling, we are amazed and grateful for the expansion and new opportunities the past 30 years have brought to our business, while operating on the same principles and ethics as we have from day one. Today Dundee Recycling is under the leadership of Stephen Kropf, who is as passionate about the business as his grandparents were when it was formed decades ago. Proudly operating in our third generation, we look forward to serving the community for generations to come.
Recycling metal is highly effective as it can be recycled repeatedly without its properties being altered. Metal recycling comes with economic and environmental benefits including; lower metal material costs, a decrease in pollution and greenhouse gas emissions from landfills, and energy conservation as it reduces the need for mining.
We have over 100 years of combined experience in the industry

Stephen started his career in the metal recycling industry at the age of 13! After school and on weekends he would help his father and grandfather around the yard doing things like sweeping, cleaning, and removing steel from brass and copper. At the age of 18, Stephen became a full-time employee with the company and immediately got his AZ driver’s license. He drove a variety of trucks (and still does from time to time), doing deliveries of our metals and servicing our accounts. At the age of 25, Stephen’s father promoted him to a manager’s position. It did not take long for Dennis to see his true potential within the company as he played a major role in the expansion and growth of the company in a short period of time. In 2017, at the age of 28, Stephen was named President and his father Dennis took a step back. Since the time Stephen took over his role, the company has seen huge growth, innovation and success that has made Dundee Recycling into what it is today. Stephen continues to grow his team and add new value daily.

Myles has been involved in the scrap recycling industry since 1992. He started out as a truck driver driving Lugger and Roll-Off, followed by a few years in the back of the warehouse working in ferrous and nonferrous receiving loads and further processing scrap for consumer sales. It wasn’t until 1994 that Myles made the big leap to go out on the road buying scrap from industrial accounts as well as other scrap dealers. Myles quickly learned that being a great scrap salesperson wasn’t easy, and through hard work and dedication to his craft he soon became aware of what it took to become a great salesperson. Myles believes in determination, self-discipline, and most importantly being himself and treating all those he deals with, with dignity, respect and above all, sincerity. Over the last 30 years, Myles has worked in all aspects of the scrap business with some very well-known companies in the field, and with his expertise, wisdom and knowledge of the business he is now part of a young talented and progressive company, Dundee Recycling.
