Upstate Shredding-Ben Weitsman Purchases Eastside Metals and Recycling

- Upstate Shredding-Ben Weitsman of Owego continues to expand its footprint across the Northeast.

The scrap metal recycler is purchasing Eastside Metals and Recycling Corporation in Fort Ann, New York near Lake George.

Eastside is a family owned and operated business that began in 2003 as a recycled auto parts seller and expanded into a full-scale scrap metal recycling operation.

Weitsman says the yard will receive its typical beautification makeover and be rebranded Ben Weitsman of Kingsbury.

It plans to retain the current 20 person staff.

The purchase marks the 17th acquisition by the company.
