Scrap Metal Recycling
Power Recycling recycles both ferrous (containing iron) and nonferrous scrap metal (not containing iron). The most common metals we recycle are copper, steel, aluminum, brass, iron and wires. But we may accept additional metals for recycling and, most importantly, we give you cash payouts for your scrap metals.
If you have racking, strapping or obsolete machinery, our operations include a complete fleet of trucks and trailers, creating a one-stop shop. We offer a customized industrial scrap management program that may feature on-site scrap recycling equipment.
Supporting Sustainable Production
Recycling scrap metals supports sustainable production and consumption. It also reduces your waste disposal costs and increases your carbon savings, helping you reach your environmental targets. Recycling scrap metal can enhance your brand image, and provides you with an additional income stream. So whether for ethical or financial reasons, industrial recycling of your scrap metals is a no-brainer.
Metals are precious natural and non-renewable resources. Nonferrous metals — aluminum, copper, nickel, tin, etc. — are non-magnetic materials that do not degrade during the recycling process, allowing them to be recycled endlessly.
Ferrous metals are magnetic and derive from iron; they include steel and alloys of iron with various materials, like brass or pewter. Depending on product life-cycle, ferrous scrap can also be reused in the production of new steel and cast-iron products, helping you to achieve a zero-waste stream.
