DMR and Community Involvement


DMR worked with the State Legislature in 2012 to pass one of the nation's most comprehensive recycling law.  In this law, video taping is required of all transactions concerning the sale of regulated metals.  Early indications from law enforcement officers in our four locations indicate that this law is cutting down on the  occurance of metal theft.  If you can't sell it without getting caught--why steal it?

DMR owner Bart Phillips believes in giving back to the community.  Currently he sits on the Winter Springs Planning and Zoning Board as well as the Seminole County Economic Development Committee.  Mr. Phillips has also served on the Orlando Metroplan Advisory Board.

Safety Director Bob Goff is the former Mayor of Casselberry and has served as a Seminole County School Board Member.  He currently is chairman of the Leisure Services Advisory Board for Seminole County and chairs the Trails and the Parks subcommittees for that group. Mr. Goff is coordinating the donation by Mr. and Mrs. Phillips of what is widely known as the "missing link" of the Cross Seminole Trail to the State of Florida.  When completed next year, the donation of 30 feet of Hwy 419 frontage at the Winter Springs site will allow the bicycle/hiking/horse trail to run uninterrupted from Orange County to Lake County.

DMR currently provides the Seminole Fire College with automobiles, vans and trucks for classes to practice with such lifesaving equipment as the "jaws of life".  Below are a few of the awards and honors earned by DMR and 419 Metal and Auto Recycling Centers.
