Copper Recycling Perth

Today’s global economy requires efficient use of raw materials, as well as material conservation through its reuse and recycling. Copper recycling is among these natural materials. On average, copper products contain 35 percent recycled content, which significantly reduces copper’s sustainable development footprint.

The Importance of Recycling

During the past decade, strong growth in emerging economies, coupled with an increased use of copper for innovative and clean energy technologies, has led to significantly higher copper demand. The recovery and recycling of copper helps to satisfy this demand and to build a sustainable future for people and the planet.

Copper is 100% Recyclable

Copper is one of the few materials that can be recycled repeatedly without any loss of performance. There is also no difference in the quality of recycled copper (secondary production) and mined copper (primary production), thus they can be used interchangeably.

Recycling Reduces CO2 Emissions and Energy Use

Recycling copper is a highly eco-efficient way of reintroducing a valuable material back into the economy. The recycling of copper requires less energy than primary production and reduces CO2 emissions.

In addition to its environmental benefits, the recycling of complex copper scrap, such as electronic waste, drives the recovery of many other metals such as gold, silver, nickel, tin, lead and zinc.

Lead recycling

Lead remains one of the most recycled materials in Australia. It has characteristics that contribute to its high recovery rate. This is evident in its infinite melting capabilities to remove impurities and reproduce them for public use. It is easy to identify and therefore highly cost-effective to collect and recycle. Lead is a scrap metal recycling process that contributes to more than half of its global use in the production of new use. The entire global economy of new lead products is sourced largely from recycled lead. Wanneroo Metal Recycling is a local company that can ensure high-quality lead recycling. We will deliver on the recycled lead that is almost identical to the primary lead collected directly from our clients. Lead is a highly valuable recyclable material because nearly all of it is easily recoverable and recyclable. 

Lead recycling process

After we’ve collected or received the lead from our clients through one of various scrap metal collection services, the products will then be broken down, and scrap lead is safely separated from other components. We will then carry out smelting and refining. The final refined lead will then be packaged for use in the production of various lead-based products like building construction material, cable sheathing, and in the healthcare industry.

Importance of responsible lead recycling

Lead-based products are very important components of thousands of vehicles and industrial equipment used on a daily basis around the world. The most important usage – is in batteries. Batteries can be used in many applications such as providing backup power for telecommunication systems, and they are also essential for cars to operate. This requires that businesses like ours are able to take on the work of systematically and responsibly recycling this metal material. Wanneroo Metal recycling is an expert in recovering and recycling lead and other scrap metals. The expert metal recycling that we specialize in, is directly helpful in reducing the release of lead to the environment and limiting any harm to local natural resources. It is important to remember that lead contains hazardous waste, and its disposal requires special care to prevent health and environmental threats.

Benefits of Wanneroo lead recycling

Not many local metal recyclers understand the importance of recycling lead and other materials like we do. Recycled lead is essential in the production of new products because it is cost- and energy-efficient. Recycled lead production takes only 35 to 40 per cent of the energy necessary to produce primary lead from ore. Unlike some of the other metals, we work with, lead can be re-melted and recycled indefinitely without the slightest of diminution in quality, making it the perfect material for the circular economy.

We process thousands of kilograms of scrap metal every year and this helps us to meet the demand of all of our local partners. Beyond our scrap processing work, we also closely monitor market trends to offer our customers the most competitive prices and top-notch service quality. Our facilities are designed with safety and efficiency in mind for both employees and customers. Our equipment is maintained and updated regularly, and our scales are calibrated quarterly.
