Why Recycle My Metal?
Recycling is essential for keeping the environment running and everyone doing their bit has a substantial impact. The EU reports that using recycled raw materials, including metals, would cut CO2 emissions by approximately 200 million tonnes every year. The problem with producing these materials is that they have a harsh impact on our air and water, but recycling these materials reduces the problem drastically.

Approximately 10 million tonnes of scrap metal are recycled in the UK every year.
Around 70% of all waste metal from the UK is recycled.
Treating recycled aluminium requires approximately 95% less energy than it does to produce it.
Recycled steel requires roughly 40% less water than producing it with raw materials.
