Services - Recycling Metal/Ferrous and Non Ferrous
Green Recycling cover the Essex, Hertfordshire, Kent, and Suffolk areas for the collection and recycling of all different types of metal including;
- Redundant machinery
- Metal offcuts
- Filing cabinets
- Scrap cars
- VIR Wire
We collect from offices, factories, shops, local authorities and schools.
|We can provide skips for smaller collections.||We can provide RO/RO (Roll on/Roll off) containers for larger bulk collections of metal.|
|Baled cans ready for recycling|
What happens to the metal next?
Once collected the metal is brought back to our MRF (Materials Recycling Facility) where each load is quality assessed and weighed on our on-site weighbridge.
|Yes please -||Clean metal with no contamination|
|No thank you -||AMetal with wood, plastics or other contamination attached|
Once this is completed the metal is tipped into bays for sorting where our 360° crane reduces the size of the material and loads it into a RO/RO (Roll on/Roll off) container. Once the bin is full, typically around 8 to 10 tonnes it is then ready for collection by our reprocessor.
The final destination
Once the material is delivered to the reprocessor it is graded and melted down and reformed into metal ingots which can then be used to form new products such as;
- Sheet steel
- Car panels
- New machinery
This represents the complete cycle of metal recycling from consumer, to collector and the end of the chain the metal reprocessor.
This completes the feed loop of this product and gives our customers complete peace of mind of where their products end up. Additionally Green Recycling audits all hauliers and re-processors on a regular basis to check waste carriers and site licences/exemptions.
Why should I recycle metal?
- It is good for the environment
- It uses less energy compared to mining new material
- Less waste to landfill
- It saves money
Should you require, we can provide you with recycling data for all collections.
