Steel

Ferrous scrap is one of the most recycled materials in the world with over 50% of the world’s steel produced from scrap. Scrap recycling reduces greenhouse gas emissions by requiring significantly less energy to manufacture products from recyclables than from virgin ore.  Recycling also diverts materials away from landfills and help with cleaner air and water by safely removing potentially hazardous materials and keeping them out of landfills. Recycling also helps extend the life of the world’s dwindling base metals resources as metals can be recycled infinitely.

We provide a variety of bins to collect steel scrap.  Bins can be provided on either a short term basis that can be used to clean up your home or factory or on a permanent basis to suit your business requirements.  We offer a prompt collection service.  Click on the contact us link to arrange a bin to suit your needs.


Statistics from the USEPA suggest the following additional savings when recycling steel:
Energy savings 75%
Savings in virgin materials use 90%
Reduction in air pollution 86%
Reduction in water use 40%
Reduction in water pollution 76%
Reduction in mining wastes 97%
Reduction in consumer wastes 105%
For every recycled tonne used in the refining process saves 1136 kg of virgin ore, 54 kg of Limestone and 636 kg of coal.
