Scrap Metal Collection

Scrap Metal Collection

The United Kingdom generates several million tonnes of scrap metal every year, which comes from various sources, such as households, commercial businesses, and numerous industries. A range of scrap metal is generated, including aluminium, brass, copper, steel, and iron.

These are expensive metals, and their constant demand from countless businesses implies that their usage can devastate natural resources, and the processing cost can be immense. The good news is that the United Kingdom has a high recycling rate for scrap metal, with over 90% recycled each year. This reduces the pressure on production and the waste for landfills.

At Elite Waste Removal, we follow the best industrial and safety standards to provide you with reliable and safe scrap metal collection, which can then be recycled or reused by a host of industries and businesses to make new products.
