Recycling one tonne of aluminium saves the carbon dioxide emissions of driving nearly 27,000 miles. Recycling one aluminium can saves enough energy to run a television for three hours. Recycling aluminium takes 95% less energy than producing it from its raw materials.
Got any PVC cables lying around?
In general, PVC cables are recycled mechanically. At the end of their life cycle, cables are recovered by recyclers that, through a process of peeling, separate the conductor (copper) from sheathing and insulation (the plastic materials). The copper is recovered and recycled in the foundry.
Lead recycling makes an important contribution to achieving and maintaining sustainable development in the construction industry through a simple and energy-efficient recovery process. The relatively low melting point of Lead, 327°C, means the process has a low carbon footprint and a minimal environmental impact.
A regular metal in our scrap yard! Copper has been recycled and mined for thousands of years. Obviously not by us! but thousands of years by people around the world
It’s even a common fact Ancient Egyptians were very involved!
Due to being a hard wearing metal and its powerful multiple uses, copper remains popular as ever.
Brass can be found in large quantities within taps, doors, radiators and plumbing.
Brass is a regular in businesses and home settings! Also, hotels always have a potential find!
