Leading Scrap Metal Recycling Company

It’s no secret that scrap metal recycling is good for the environment. With responsible recycling, fewer precious raw materials need to be extracted from the ground, and reusable metal is kept out of landfill. What’s more, scrap metal recycling can be profitable for businesses, and that’s where Greenplant Stainless comes in.

As a leading metal recycling company, we’re always on the lookout for all kinds of unwanted scrap metal material, and can offer you superb prices for pieces of equipment that are no longer of any use to you.

Some facts about metals recycling

Aside from gaining cash for equipment they no longer need, businesses that use a scrap metal recycling company can be confident that they are being environmentally responsible too. Here are some reasons why:

  • According to the British Metals Recycling Association, using recycled metal cuts CO2 emissions by 200 million tonnes each year
  • Making items from recycled steel rather than new steel decreases air pollution by about 86%, needs 40% less water and reduces water pollution by 76%
  • Almost two thirds (60%) of the copper produced after the 1900s is still in use today
  • The scrap metal industry produces much more metal than the UK needs, so around 90% of recycled metal is exported. Little surprise, therefore, that the United Kingdom is one of the top exporters of recycled metals in the world

Practically all metals can be recycled to make brand new materials, usually to the same quality as in their previous lives. Why not free up your inventory and generate some cash by talking to our sales team on 01254 872287, or using our enquiry form.
