Well, this is our guide to scrap metal collection and the environment.

Scrap metal collection and the environment

2019 is going to be a pivotal year for the environment. From the pollution and plastic in our oceans, to the melting polar ice caps, the environment will be a hot topic this year. And this will change company policies and practices in terms of recycling, reducing fuel and electricity, and generally being more environmentally friendly. If you work for or operate a company or business with eco-friendly policies currently, you’ll already understand what a minefield these can be. Especially for smaller businesses. But working with a professional scrap metal collection company could be a great solution for ensuring your waste is recycled appropriately. Like us, here at X-Met metals. We will collect, and pay for:

  • ferrous and non-ferrous metals
  • WEEE waste
  • combination boilers
  • cars and car parts including catalytic converters

Environmental advantages of scrap metal collection

So what are the environmental advantages of using our service? Well, our service could be beneficial for your company, because:

  • the scrap metal is collected from you, on site. This means that you can cut down on fuel bills, saving money, and the environment.
  • the scrap metal is recycled responsibly and legally, and you will have paperwork to show that you are recycling efficiently.

In addition, our scrap metal collection service is even better for the environment. All of the waste we collect is broken down and recycled effectively and efficiently. This means that it isn’t left to corrode into the environment, leaking toxins into the environment. Instead everything is stored and dealt with accordingly.
