Recycling

Wait! don’t trash it; after all, one man’s trash is another’s treasure. Your scrap metal horde can prove to be a treasure for you!

You can learn how with Scrap Metal Windsor.

Scrap Metal Windsor transforms unwanted metal objects so that they can be put to use again. With metals, there is no end to how much you can recycle.

Metals can be recycled over and over again without losing any of their characteristics. Steel is the substance that gets recycled the most on the globe, Aluminium, copper, silver, brass, and gold are some of the other highly recycled metals.

Scrap metal recycling is not only good for the environment, but it can be a good source of some income too. Scrap Metal Windsor is here to help you in case you have scrap metal that you don’t know what to do with.

Why Do We Recycle Metals?

Metals are precious materials that can be recycled numerous times without losing quality or characteristics. People are motivated to gather scrap metal to sell it to recycling firms because it has value. There is also an environmental benefit in addition to the financial incentive.

Many metals can take hundreds, if not thousands, of years to break down into atoms tiny enough to return to the ground in a landfill, occupying space for hundredsof years. Some metals, such as lead and mercury, are dangerous and will leach into the soil and water over time, so they should be properly disposed of.

Recycling of metals also enables the preservation of natural resources while also requiring less energy to process compared to the manufacture of new products using virgin raw materials. Recycling also emits less carbon dioxide and other harmful gases as compared to when metals are mined from their ores.

Metal recycling also needs less energy to process in comparison to when metals are extracted from their ores. This is because recycling emits less carbon dioxide and other hazardous chemicals.

Financially, recycling saves money and allows manufacturing businesses to cut down on their production costs. Recycling also creates jobs. Recycling saves money and helps manufacturing companies decrease expenses. Recycling also results in the creation of employment opportunities.

Scrap Metal Windsor is dedicated to assisting the community by recycling scrap metal. We are passionate about what we do since it allows us to not only dispose of your scrap metal responsibly but also to help the environment.

Bring your materials to Scrap Metal Windsor and play your part in lowering waste in significant ways for all of these reasons and more.

 

 

Interesting metal recycling facts

  • Metal is 100% recyclable and can be used over and over again without losing its basic properties. For instance, recycling one tonne of tin saves 99 percent of the energy necessary for its initial manufacturing.
  • Scrap metal recycling contributes to the economy by avoiding landfills and saving valuable land. Moreover, CO2 emissions are reduced by 99 percent when scrap lead is used instead of its ore.
  • It is also important to note that almost 40 percent of the world’s copper demand is satisfied by recycled copper
  • Carbon dioxide emissions are decreased by up to 65 percent when copper is recycled instead of being extracted from mined copper ore.

Types of Metals Recycled:

We deal in both ferrous and non-ferrous metals at Scrap Metal Windsor. Iron and carbon are combined in ferrous metals. Carbon steel, alloy steel, wrought iron, and cast iron are all common ferrous metals. Non-ferrous metals, on the other hand, include aluminum, copper, lead, zinc, and tin. Nonferrous metals are more valuable than ferrous metals.

An Overview of The Process of Scrap Metal Recycling:

The main stages of the metal recycling process that we follow at Scrap Metal Windsor are:

  1. Collection: Because metals have good scrap value, the collecting procedure differs from that of other commodities. Large steel constructions, railroad tracks, ships, farm equipment, and consumer scrap are among some of the sources of scrap metals.
  2. Sorting:The technique of extracting metals from scrap that has been mixed is known as sorting. We start by removing paper and then separate the metals from the rest of the materials, keeping just plastics and metals. Then, we generate electric currents, which only affect metals. This is known as eddy current separation. Separating ferrous and non-ferrous metals is an important part of the procedure. At Scrap Metal Windsor, we have cranes with electromagnets that can remove large volumes of ferrous scrap. This technique alsohelps in removing plastics from the scrap.
  3. Processing:Metals are crushed so that they may be processed further. Pulverizing metals speeds up the melting because small shredded metals have a high surface-to-volume ratiowhich is why melting them requires considerably less energy. Steel is converted into steel blocks, whereas aluminum is reduced to thin sheets.
  4. Melting:At Scrap Metal Windsor, scrap metal is melted in a massive furnace. Each metal is sent to a furnace designed particularly for melting it. Depending on the size of the furnace, the degree of heat, and the volume of metal, melting can take somewhere from a few minutes to many hours.
  5. Purification: Purification delivers a high-quality, impurity-free end product. The purification method used is electrolysis.
  6. Solidification: After purification, melted metals are conveyed by a belt to cool and solidify. Scrap metals are molded into certain shapes, such as bars, which may then be used to produce a range of products.
  7. Metal Bar Transportation: Once they’ve cooled and set, they’re ready to use. The metals are then transported to other businesses and used as raw materials in the production of new products.

The metal recycling process starts all over again when the items created from these metal bars reach the end of their useful life.
