OROVILLE – Chris Celli has opened CNC BuyBack Center, a scrap metal and salvaging business, just south of Oroville at 32888 A Hwy. 97.
Celli, who comes to Oroville from Tacoma, has moved to the area and has been operating his business since May. The business has already bought several thousand tons of scrap since opening.
“We give the opportunity to give people the chance to clean up their places and get paid for it,” said Celli.
The BuyBack Center buys metals, like steel, brass, copper and aluminum. They also take appliances, except for refrigerators and they do not take cars or car bodies at this time. In the future Celli said he would like to start a wrecking yard for people who want to get rid of their junk cars, but at this time he is sticking with the scrap metal business.
“I felt that coming to Eastern Washington to start a business that most everyone could benefit from would be a good idea and fun as it’s beautiful here,” he said. “I give people the chance to make money off of junk metal as opposed to taking it to the dump or having to pay to get rid of it.”
Celli can be reached at the CNC location or by phone at (509) 560-0182.
