Advantages of scrap metal recycling for construction sites

Recycling your construction site waste can bring a range of different advantages. These include:

  • Saving time
  • Legally disposing of waste
  • Making money

Saving time

Construction sites don’t just generate building mess and waste, they often have to be stripped and emptied first. This generates a range of scrap waste, from old boilers to wiring and pipes, and progressing with the project can be a challenge until the waste is removed. As a result, working with a professional mobile scrap metal collection company, like ours here at X-met Metals, could save you time and money. We will come to you, to remove the waste, and to pay you on the spot. So you can get on with what’s really important.

Legally disposing of waste

It might not make much difference to you what happens to the waste from your construction project, but it is a legal requirement to dispose of your waste correctly. And with the spate of fly-tipping rising across parts of the North West, we cant help but feel this is a real shame. Metals and electronics dumped in natural areas can seep out toxins and pollutants into the soil, causing untold damage to the earth, and the environment. So why not cash this waste in instead, and dispose of it legally and effectively?

Making money

While you probably wont get rich from cashing in scrap metals, boilers or electronic equipment, you’ll get more for your waste than you will if you don’t take it to a scrap merchant. Or better yet, let the scrap metal merchants come to you. We can collect your scrap, and pay for it wherever you are. Our vans are fitted with industrial scales to weigh your scrap, and we’ll even help you organise it by grade, so that you get the most value for your metals. So why not turn something that is usually a hassle, and best avoided, and turn it into a great way to make some cash back, for a lot less work?

In addition, because we travel to you, wherever you are, you will also save money too. You wont need to stop work, load a van or truck, and drive to a scrapyard where you will need to wait, before driving all the way back. Instead, mobile scrap collection is a simple and quick process. And it will save you money on fuel, and labour costs.
