Our History

Based in Elmira, Kaplan's Scrap Yard was created to serve the complete metal and paper recycling needs of clients throughout New York and Northern Pennsylvania . Our goal is to provide high-quality recycling services and products at fair prices.

Acquired by Staiman's in 2013, Kaplan's is a brand-new division of the Staiman Brothers' respected recycling group. In 1900, Kalman and Jacob Staiman created their business as a ferrous and non-ferrous metal processer. Now offering paper recycling, as well as container service and scrap buying, the Staiman Recycling Corporation has grown to be one of the most respected organizations in the region.
