It takes safe drivers to run a safe scrap yard

At the US Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries Convention and Expo in Los Angeles, Mike O’Connor of Sadoff Iron & Metal Recycling in Fond Du Lac, Wisconson has received ISRI’s Safe Driver of the Year Award.

‘Mike O’Connor has 41 years of strong, safe driving experience,’ said ISRI’s transportation safety director Commodor Hall. ‘His track record illustrates that safety is a core value for himself, his coworkers, and everyone else on the road around him.’

O’Connor has driven for Sadoff Iron & Metal since 1977 after he served six years in the US Navy. He is a four-time winner of the Wisconsin Motor Carrier Association Presidents Safe Driving Award, and he was recognised as the 3rd place ISRI Driver of the Year for 2016, and the 2nd place ISRI Driver of the Year for 2017.

An example for others

‘Mike is our most senior driver and continues to be an example for others to follow,’ said Andy Coates, transportation service manager at Sadoff Iron & Metal. ‘His dedication to the company is obvious. Mike operates in a safe and efficient manner, servicing our customers with professionalism showing them why Sadoff Iron & Metal is the preferred choice in recycling.’
