Established in 1946
Middleboro Recycling’s parent company, Walter Zion’s Used Auto Parts, was founded in 1946 by Walter Zion Sr. He began with one dump truck collecting miscellaneous scrap and “junk” cars. As time went on, people started bringing their “junk” to the yard and started buying various parts that they needed. For many years, Walter was best known for selling used vehicles, used auto parts and rebuilt transmissions. In self-reliant style he also sold new and used tires out of a barn at his house.
