Recycling scrap metal is not only good for the environment, but it also helps conserve resources. Here are some types of scrap metal that we recycle:
Steel is the most recycled material globally and can be found in various items like cars, appliances, and construction materials. It’s magnetic and heavy, making it easy to sort and recycle.
Iron is a common component in many items, including machinery, pipes, and old tools. It’s prized for its durability and strength.
Aluminium is lightweight and corrosion-resistant, making it popular in the packaging (like soda cans), siding, and car parts. It’s highly recyclable and retains its properties indefinitely
Copper is one of the most valuable scrap metals and is often used in wiring, plumbing, and electronics due to its excellent conductivity. It’s easily recognizable by its reddish color
Brass, an alloy of copper and zinc, is often found in keys, door handles, light fixtures, and bathroom fittings. It’s known for its bright gold appearance.
