Down on her luck, Marsha Serlin found herself a mother facing divorce with the potential of a foreclosed home and a repossessed family car. She decided against being a victim. It was time to take action. Marsha asked one of her clients how he could afford his lifestyle and he introduced her to the scrap metal business.
With just $200, a rental truck, and working 16-hour days, Marsha founded United Scrap Metal (USM), an award-winning provider of innovative recycling solutions. The company has since grown into a $215 million dollar revenue generating business with a team of 180 dedicated employees serving more than 2,500 commercial clients coast to coast.
