    What happens to the scrap metal after I sell it to you?

    Sorting and Processing: At our facility, your scrap metal goes through a meticulous sorting process. This separates different types of metals (ferrous and non-ferrous) and may even involve further categorization based on specific characteristics.

    Processing for Reuse: The sorted scrap metal undergoes various processing techniques depending on the material. This could involve shredding, shearing, or baling to prepare it for efficient transportation and re-melting.

    Smelting and Re-refining: The processed scrap is then transported to smelters or refineries. Here, it’s combined with other materials and melted at high temperatures. During this process, impurities are removed, and the metal is essentially “reborn” for a new life.

    Manufacturing New Products: The re-refined scrap metal becomes the raw material for creating new products across various industries. This could be anything from car parts and building materials to appliances and even new consumer goods.
