The environmental benefits of using scrap metal services

Trading Metals is as responsible and environmentally friendly as possible, and lives by the mantra here in the recycling trade that almost everything can be recycled or reused in some way. We break down and pull every scrap of metal from an incredible range of objects in our mission to make sure no scrap is left behind. This removes unwanted materials during clean up operations and can only be good for the greater environment in the long run, reducing resources, greenhouse gases and energy consumption.

Scrap metal bin services

If your scrap metal accumulation is an ongoing one, we have just the solution you need. Trading Metals is pleased to offer a scrap metal bin collection service for South Australian businesses to accumulate scrap metal and simply inform us when it is ready to be collected. We are dedicated to making everything as customer-friendly as possible, from delivering your bin with any instructions and training needed to collecting your scrap metal expediently. We guarantee a 24-hour turnaround for changing your bins, when required.

A scrap metal bin is surely the most convenient way to handle an ever-growing pile of scrap metal, simply gather it together and have it taken away when it’s full.
