About State Paper and Metal

Morris Gudelman started the company in 1939. He handled scrap paper, iron and other metal, and rags in the company’s original location on Woodruff Avenue near Cherry Street. The company was then called State Iron and Metal Co. Morris’s nephew, Norman Gudelman, immigrated to the United States from Israel and joined his uncle in the company in 1958. Three years later, he and the late Ralph Worshtil bought the company and moved it to the present location on Central Avenue.

Barry Gudelman, Norman’s son and the current President, and Mr. Segall, the Vice President, said the company has gone through a number of transformations. The central recycling items during each transition included paper, waste paper, and nonferrous metals such as copper, brass, and aluminum. Business is a mix of drive-up customers unloading their pop cans to industrial and commercial firms that hire State Paper to haul away tons of office waste.
