Steel Recycling Christchurch

Iron and steel scrap metal (“ferrous scrap”), comes from end of life products (old or obsolete scrap) as well as scrap metal generated from the manufacturing process. Today, ferrous scrap is the most recycled material in the world. Roughly 45% of the total output of the new steel comes from recycled scrap and there is virtually no loss of metal in the recycling process.

We recycle all types of scrap metal at our yard in Woolston, Christchurch
