Bay Beach Recycling was founded in 2015 by the Lange family. Brett and his father Ralph initially got the business off the ground. Soon, friends were helping out and volunteering time to break down washing machines, strip wire and sort metal scraps of all kinds.

From the very beginning, people commented on how fairly and honestly they were treated, and saying they’d be back. That initial small following has continued to grow as people realized they could actually enjoy a visit to the “scrap yard.” That’s because a basic tenet of the company is that people are of the greatest value, and deserve to be treated as such.

“I’ve known the Lange family for years and they are some of the hardest working, friendliest and most honest people I know. Anyone who steps into BBR will discover what it means to be blessed.”

“Life is hard for me. I don’t have much. When I go home, I go to nothing. This is the best part of my day. You guys make me smile and laugh. I love coming here.”


“I love coming here because you guys treat me so well.”
