Metal Recycling

Metals are a commonly used material for all sorts of things – packaging for food and drink is a common use of metals, and metal containers can be used to store many different products. Metals are used in the manufacture of many everyday items and are easily recycled.

The Types of Metal We Collect

Metals are an important resource, and at Printwaste we make sure that they are easy for our customers to recycle. As well as food and drink containers, Printwaste can recycle a range of metal items, including (but not limited to):

Drinks Cans

These can be made from steel or aluminium

Furniture Components

Such as legs on office furniture, often made from steel

Tubing, Pipes and Wire Cables

Made from many easy to recycle metals

The Benefits Metal Recycling

Metal can be recycled many times over, and by recycling metal, fewer raw materials and resources are needed to be extracted from our planet to create new products.

Providing the right recycling processes are used, almost every type of metal can be reused repeatedly without compromising the quality of the final product.

Your business will benefit from increased recycling rates, and you will be contributing to the circular economy.
