Maui County officials at that time agreed with the Shadrows' assessment. "We needed their help and expertise. We were pleased that someone with their experience in scrap metal was willing to invest in Maui."

In March of 2005, the headline of the Maui News paper read, "Maui's only scrap yard closes." Stepping into this island-wide disaster was SOS Metals Island Recycling, a new scrap metal recycling facility on a three-acre plot at the Central Maui Base yard.

The site included a 12,000 square-foot enclosed warehouse, a high-speed auto bailer (car crusher) and an Envirorac System which is used to safely separate fluids from old vehicles. SOS invested millions and developed cutting edge environmental controls to keep the site safe and eliminate pollution. SOS's professional approach combined efficient recycling with environmental responsibility. 

In 2006, the county signed a contract with SOS to process derelict vehicles and appliances dumped along Maui's roads. SOS gave the county a fair price, bidding one million dollars less than the next highest bidder, thereby saving the taxpayers over one million dollars a year. "SOS cut the price charged to recycle an auto and appliance to less than half of what the county was paying before we opened," stated Sandy Shadrow. 

Maui county officials, at the time, stated, "We now have the means to guarantee an end to the junk car problem and increase the effectiveness of an on-going County program."

In July 2008, SOS won another county bid, this time to clean up the Hana Landfill. They bid $400,000 lower than the next highest bidder. For twelve years, miscellaneous scrap metal, 3,000 derelict vehicles, broken appliances, propane tanks, batteries, and tires had been stockpiled at the Hana landfill.  SOS worked on site at the landfill to prepare approximately 4,000 tons of materials for hauling
