Mervis Culture

Who is Mervis Industries?

At Mervis, we are focused on creating progressive solutions to the recycling needs of our customers and communities. Our near century-long family management has built a reputation of financial stability, integrity and customer loyalty that few other recycling centers can match. We are proud to be one of the most respected and experienced recyclers in the industry and the largest recycler throughout Central Illinois and Indiana.

As our company expands and evolves, Mervis creates innovative ways to add services, increase recycling, add value for our customers and to put new life into unused land and abandoned facilities. With nearly 275 dedicated employees, Mervis Industries currently serves clients throughout North America and the Pacific Rim. Mervis is a full-service provider for iron, metal, plastic, fiber, and all other recyclable products.

Mervis Industries’ services extend well beyond our public and industrial recycling centers: Mervis Plastics provides custom grinding, colorizing, and pelletizing. Illini Castings produces high-quality remanufactured railroad parts in our state-of-the-art and environmentally-sensitive facility.

Family Company, Family Culture

With more than 90 years of family ownership spanning multiple generations, Mervis Industries carries a unique culture and set of values for our employees and customers alike. We view our team members as an extension of our family, which leads to working practices different from every recycling company in the industry.

We want employees to be able to work hard, do a good job, and be able to focus on their lives outside of work without constant on-the-clock mental, medical or financial stress. We offer an extensive benefits package, fair pay, good hours and no second shift. We want our employees to be able to spend quality time with their families that they work so hard to support.

At work, we’re tight-knit, collaborative, and never afraid to have fun while getting the job done. We train for the work we do so we know we can do it right, and we all trust one another in our roles to provide the best service possible.

Opportunities For Advancement and Growth

With a rich history of recycling excellence, we’re here to stay, and so are our team members. It’s common to see Mervis employees who’ve been around for years and even decades within senior roles, because we promote from within.

If you work hard, show initiative and carry a hunger for professional growth, you’ll be able to make your mark and advance within a company that sticks together like family.
