What happens to my recycled metal waste?

At NRC Business Waste, we are fully committed to sustainable practices. That’s why we make sure 99% of the waste we collect avoids landfills, with 43% being recycled and 56% getting converted into green energy.

Metal is one of the easiest materials to recycle, with most types going through the same 5 stages of metal recycling:

  1. Sorting – We sort the recyclable from the non-recyclable metals, before they are divided into their different types. Checking the quality of the scrap metal is essential, as we want to make sure we’re using the best materials to craft top-notch new products.
  2. Shredding – The scrap metal is shredded into manageable sheets. Steel is reshaped into neat blocks. Both processes help make the metal easier to handle and melt.
  3. Melting – Each metal type has its own furnace for melting at various temperatures. This phase uses quite a lot of energy, but still costs less than producing new metals from scratch.
  4. Purifying – This stage involves pulling any impurities out of the waste metal, making sure the final product is of the best possible quality.
  5. Solidifying – The molten metal is sent down conveyor belts to cool. By the end of the process we are left with metal that’s as good as new.

What is metal waste management?

Metal waste management is the process of collecting, transporting, and disposing of metal waste in a safe and environmentally sound manner. We specialise in efficient, cost effective business metal waste management - get in touch with our teams today for your free quote.

Why is metal waste management important?

Metal waste management is important because metal is a valuable resource that can be recycled and reused. Recycling metal helps to conserve natural resources, reduce pollution, and save energy. Metal waste that is not properly managed can end up in landfills, where it can leach harmful chemicals into the environment.

What are the benefits of recycling metal?

Recycling metal has a number of benefits, including: Conserving natural resources: Recycling metal helps to reduce the need to mine new metal ores, which can save energy and reduce pollution. Reducing pollution: Recycling metal reduces the amount of metal waste that ends up in landfills and incinerators, which can help to improve air and water quality. Saving energy: It takes much less energy to recycle metal than to produce new metal from ore.
