We have designed our operation to be as environmentally sound as possible, and by recycling as much of the scrap metal we process as we can, we hope to reduce the impacts of mining, conserve natural resources and reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill.
The use of recycled metal saves up to 74 per cent energy, reduces air pollution by 86 per cent and water pollution by 76 per cent, in addition to reducing water consumption by 40 per cent.
