The Ship “Graveyard”

The ‘Graveyard’

One of the hallmarks of our Staten Island location is the ship ‘graveyard,’ which dates to the days following World War II when Donjon began operations as a marine salvage facility.


We receive many inquiries from amateur and professional photographers and filmmakers requesting access to the graveyard from our property.  Unfortunately, we are unable to grant such requests.  Donjon Recycling is an operational scrap facility utilizing heavy equipment, and safety regulations prohibit us from allowing photography of any kind.

Filmmakers interested in obtaining special permission may Contact the Donjon Recycling offices. 
Thank you for your understanding.
