BENEFITS OF METAL RECYCLING
As Australia’s population grows, so does the amount of garbage. So we’re investing in smart solutions for our planet.
Recycling metal reduces the amount of:
- Hazardous waste sent to landfill
- Mining needed for new metals
- Air and water pollution
- Energy needed to create new products (versus from virgin materials)
We’re conscious of reducing our carbon footprint. And we want to make it easy for you to reduce yours too.
Once we collect your scrap metal waste, we sort, sterilize and recycle. We follow Environment Protection Agency best practices.
Aluminium, iron, copper, brass and steel can be reused numerous times. Your old metals can become new appliances, cars, planes and building materials. Many metal food and drinks cans are already 100% recycled content.
