PGM Recovery Systems is a buyer and processor of scrap oxygen sensors for their precious metal values. Our specialty is in O2 sensor recycling, we market nationwide offering competitive quotes to auto dismantlers, catalytic converter recyclers, auto core recyclers, scrap recycling operations and auto repair service technicians.  

As an added benefit to recyclers; PGM Recovery Systems expertise in Platinum Group Metal recovery from auto catalyst is available; please call and speak to one of our professionals today for details.

Our national marketing program has developed a great number of companies that are now harvesting and recycling O2 sensors due to their value. Still there are companies that continue to discard O2 sensors in their trash or scrap steel bins not realizing the loss of profit…however, that trend is changing. Recycling O2 sensors has now become a source of value to many types of recyclers.

Oxygen sensors are processed to remove the precious metals contained by stripping away the steel scrap. A near total extraction is extremely difficult, requiring multiple steps in the process.

Due to the technological challenges presented in processing, plus the capital investment required; many companies choose not to specialize in purchasing and processing O2/ oxygen sensor scrap. More difficult issues occur when processing sensors with brackets and/or heavy reducers. These sensors reduce the precious metal recovery by at least    one - third and greatly increase the process costs required for oxygen sensor recycling.

We accept up to 4-5% of sensors with brackets/heavy reducers; however, if you accumulate sensors across all car models this will not be an issue. Therefore, please contact us before shipping if you handle only Toyota and Lexus models. 

PGM Recovery Systems through the combination of scrap recycling technology and extractive metallurgy is able to monthly process tons of scrap O2 sensors.
