SA Recycling marks milestone in iron ore exports

Iron ore exports exceeded 2.5 million tonnes from October 2020 at the SA recycling terminal in the port of Long Beach.

Since 2013, the Pier T terminal on Terminal Island has received iron ore mined in the western United States by rail. The material is loaded on bulk carriers sailing in East Asian ports.

"I want to congratulate SA Recycling on this achievement," said Mayor of Long Beach Robert Garcia. "Thank you to all the workers across our region who have made this milestone possible."

"We congratulate the team at SA Recycling for growing its business and thriving throughout the pandemic," said Steven Neal, president of the Long Beach Board of Harbor Commissioners. "This is a company that has shown its ability to innovate and adapt. Their hard work is a huge benefit to the community."

"We are proud to partner with SA Recycling, which excels at generating jobs and economic opportunities, all while serving as a steward of the environment," said Port of Long Beach executive director Mario Cordero. "We applaud SA Recycling for achieving this milestone in iron ore exports and we look forward to many more years of working together."

It should be noted that SA Recycling has more than 75 facilities in eight states of the United States, with more than 30 facilities in California.
