Advantages of Recycling

Metal Recycling Saves Energy

Recycling scrap metal reduces greenhouse gas emissions and uses less energy than making metal from virgin ore.
The amount of energy saved using various recycled metals compared to virgin ore is up to:

  • 92 % for aluminium
  • 90 % for copper
  • 56 % for steel

Metal Recycling Conserves Natural Resources

Metal recycling also conserves natural resources. Recycling one ton of steel conserves 2,500 pounds of iron ore, 1,400 pounds of coal and 120 pounds of limestone.Recycling a ton of aluminium conserves up to 8 tons of bauxite ore and 14 megawatt hours of electricity.

Waste Oil Tank

Waste oil from ELV's is disposed of through Rilta.

Furnace

In 2011 we installed a state of the art sloping heat furnace to bring recycling to a higher level. We pay top prices for (Irony aluminium)engines, gearboxes, aircon pumps, wishbones etc ; any aluminium content.

Battery Storage

Lead balance weights and tyres are taken from the wheels.

Battery Storage

All fluids are drained from ELV's, Such as: Petrol / diesel, windscreen fluids, radiator coolant, brake fluid, gearbox oil and engine oil.

Battery Storage

All of which are stored separately and await disposal

Tyre Storage

Waste oil from ELV's is disposed of through Rilta.

Bailer

All heavier metals are sheared to reduce their bulk for export.
