Recycling Scrap

When we recycle aluminium, we save 95% of the energy needed to make it from bauxite. (aluminium in raw form) This energy saving makes scrap aluminium increasingly valuable. Money is the incentive to recycling, but it also improves the environment. Aluminium recycling is the process by which scrap aluminium can be melted down and reused in products after its initial production. Remelting scrap aluminium uses only 5% of the energy required to make new aluminium. The nature of aluminium makes the metal one of the few infinitely recyclable materials used today. It can be recycled without losing its quality. All the offcuts of aluminium in our extrusion plant as well as rejected or damaged material is cut into short lengths to fit into the baling machine in which it is processed and bundled.

The prepared scrap is then weighed and palletized. The buyers are notified when a load is ready to be collected. Each pallet and bag is labelled before an invoice is produced.

Ready For Despatch

Our customer collects the scrap to melt down and thus helping to save that 95% energy mentioned above. We sell our aluminium scrap to the Largest Extruder in South Africa thus partnering with them to assist in the saving of the earth’s natural energy. In our quest to become a world class supplier of extrusions, we will putting in a furnace in the near future to re-melt scrap.
