Reclamet is a full-service scrap metal recycling company. We specialise in servicing the scrap needs of marine, transportation, industrial, commercial and energy industries in Kent, United Kingdom. Using our years of experience and resources, we offer reliable, innovative solutions to meet any project’s needs.
We primarily purchase ferrous metals, such as turnings, plate and structural (P&S), heavy metal steel (HMS) and white goods. We also buy non-ferrous metals (aluminium, brass, copper, stainless steel, etc.) on a case-by-case basis.
What are the top five industries that produce scrap metal?
Auto Manufacturing Industry
Vehicle parts are widely used in scrap metal recycling. Aluminium and steel are examples of the most common metals found within this industry.
The construction industry is a major source of scrap metals. The construction industry generates vast amounts of scrap from residential, new homes, high-rise, towers, and commercial buildings. Carbon steel is used in construction; electrical components, piping, and wiring are common scrap metals, usually copper.
Like the auto body and auto manufacturing industry, aeroplane manufacturing develops many spare parts in their plants. Common metals seen within this industry include aluminium, titanium, and steel.
Home Appliance/Appliance Industry
Appliances can range from home washers, dryers and industrial kitchen equipment. Consumer demand for new products such as ovens, air conditioners, and refrigerators is constantly increasing. This creates an ongoing need for new metals, showing the importance of recycling our old appliances.
Home Furnishings Industry
Home furnishings can include furniture, large appliances and interior structures. There are many different areas of the home that can create scrap metals that you wouldn’t expect. For example, storm windows are often made with aluminium frames. Also, a screen door’s structure can be entirely made of aluminium which can be recycled.
