Scrap Metal Collection

Does your business produce metal waste? We can help you with scrap metal collection.

The types of scrap metal available varies from being nailed down or made from some sheet of metal, to being a tiny sliver. All scrap metals, whether it is ferrous metals or non-ferrous metals, have some sort of recycling value and are relatively safe to dispose of as long as they’re not too large. Whatever the quantity of unwanted metal you have, Inspire Waste Management team will provide you with suitable skips for your local scrap collection needs.

We collect the following ferrous and non-ferrous materials:

  • Iron
  • Steel
  • Aluminium
  • Brass
  • Bronze
  • Copper
  • Lead
  • Nickel
  • Tin
  • Cable & Wiring

Our skip sizes for scrap metal collections vary between 6 yards and 40 yards. You also have the option of choosing between an open skip or closed skip to help you if you need to prevent the surrounding environment from becoming contaminated with other waste.

Inspire Waste Management provides waste management services that meet all of the scrap metal law obligations of your business, such as the environmental laws and safety regulations, so you can rest assured that your scrap metal is processed correctly.

The benefits of having recycling scrap metal

As a business owner, it’s important to care about the environment. Our team at Inspire Waste Management compiled a few reasons why you should consider getting rid of your scraps and recycle them – and why you should look into scrap metal recycling – below.

  1. Landfills
  2. Repeatable recycling
  3. Energy use
  4. Economy
  5. Natural resources

1. Landfills

It is important to ensure that as little of our waste collected ends up in landfills as possible, and it makes sense that we would want to recover metals. Biodegradability for metals creates a 50-500 year wait time which is too great of a wait. So let’s work together!

2. Repeatable recycling

Metal is a great material to recycle because it can repeatedly be recycled and not wear out like other materials. This means that scrap metal is diverted from landfill and it’s used again, without affecting the environment or adding to pollution.

3. Energy Use

Recycling scrap metal saves more energy than creating pure metal. Mining and processing metal ores and treating the metal for use in everyday life is very expensive and environmentally damaging.

4. Economy

Local recycling helps create jobs and grow the local economy. The recycling process is more time-consuming and requires more staff, but it still only takes one person to operate a truck at a landfill. If your company allows free collection of scrap metal, you can help bring more money into our economy.

5. Natural Resources

One of the best ways to conserve our natural resources is to recycle scrap metal, which can be used for production of new goods. By recycling metal rather than mining virgin metal, we help protect our natural resources by not depleting them any further; it’s a win-win!
