Scrap Metal & Recycling Security Solutions

Scrap yards are very alluring for someone looking to make quick money from discarded materials. Stealth Monitoring works with many scrap metal and recycling yards, successfully deploying remote monitoring solutions that reduce theft, monitor and record site activities, and mitigate liability.

Live Video Monitoring: Our trained security operators watch strategically-placed cameras in real time to monitor access points and protect assets. We can trigger speaker alarms and call for police dispatch when we see trespassers, unauthorized visitors, building break-ins, and other suspicious activity. Cameras record site activities 24/7, which can be used as a valuable tool for owners and managers. Our proactive solutions are typically 25-60% more cost-effective than traditional security guards and include options with video monitoring, video review, gate control, system health checking and can be further customized to even document load weights from on-site weigh scales.

Security Concerns

Security Guards

Many scrap yards rely on security guards to monitor their property, but they can be expensive, costing tens of thousands of dollars a month. Additionally, there are other constraining factors involved with guards including inadequate training, limited coverage, as well as a lack of confidence in their ability to do the job they were hired to do. With Stealth’s live video monitoring solution, you get a team of operators to watch your cameras, so you can rest assured that your property is always being watched by trustworthy, trained professionals.

Security Guard Expenses

Security Expenses

Drive-by patrol services that visit scrap yards are inefficient and expensive. Other camera systems that are not being watched will not produce the same results as Stealth’s proven proactive solution.

Theft & Property Damage

The outdoor, open areas of scrap yards, combined with high-value material, present a security challenge. Stealth’s live monitoring and high-quality IP megapixel video provide a more effective alternative to traditional surveillance methods. Our trained operators can watch potential access points for live break-ins and property damage. When suspicious activity is noticed they can activate speakers and communicate with authorities, which increases the likelihood of deterring crime before it happens.

Waste & Recycling Liability


Threats aren’t restricted to outside intruders. Our customized solution can ensure employees are following your protocols to keep the yard safe and help protect you from liability by watching for risky situations in real time.

Waste & Recycling Remote Locations

Remote Locations

Many scrap yards are in rural areas that can be difficult or costly to secure after hours. On-site guards can only cover so much ground. Stealth video monitoring provides remote operators the ability to view multiple cameras at once, no matter where the project is located.
