MidWest Iron & Metal

The recycling company was established in 1903 when Israel Smith along with Wichita/Denver Railroad opened a scrap operations next to a chicken processing plant. Tin, iron, rags and animal bones were recycled and shipped via the railroad. The recycling business continued to prosper and eventually Mr. Smith took over the railroad depot at 700 South Main, Hutchinson, Kansas and acquired a partner, Mr. Louis Gordon. Together they served the local community by collecting and recycling all type of metals, glass, rubber, bones and rags.

The company name, Midwest Iron & Metal Co., was established in 1927 when Mr. Gordon became the sole owner.
