The value of scrap metal recycling in Perth

Recycling scrap metal involves the salvage and retrieval of reusable metal items and scraps, after which it is sorted, sheared, smelted, brokered, and reformatted by expert metal recyclers in preparation for reuse in an entirely new product.

As this process minimises toxic waste while preserving valuable raw ore from being extracted, it’s highly beneficial for reducing carbon emissions when compared to mining or processing virgin materials.

Recycling both ferrous (contains iron) and non-ferrous (no iron) forms of metals, qualified recyclers limit the amount of bulky waste sent to landfills and instead produce quality metal for manufacturing and construction.

How recycling boosts the economy

Scrap metal recycling resources valuable used metal and repurposes it for a wide range of essential industries from steel mills to refineries. This supply of recycled raw materials helps prevent price hikes for producers and consumers alike, with reprocessed metal just as strong and durable as its original form. This benefits the economy by:

  • Utilising precious resources
  • Providing affordable pre-existing materials for manufacturing
  • Minimising the extraction of raw materials, preserving metal ore
  • Preventing environmental hazards linked to mining practices
  • Saving money and energy spent on extracting raw ore
  • Reducing waste by collecting leftover materials from construction and mine sites
  • Creating jobs in the metal recycling industry

  • Supplying cost-effective materials translates to economic growth
