Recycling

Old Wheels ready for recycling

Recycling is at the heart of the castings industry and we have been recycling metal for hundreds of years.

Rather than going to landfill, most scrap metals are collected, melted down and re-used in producing new components at vastly less cost to the environment than mining and manufacturing new metal.

Around 250,000 tonnes of ferrous and 150,000 tonnes of non-ferrous scrap is recycled within the foundry industry each year to manufacture high quality castings for a diverse range of applications.

This recycling is both commercially and environmentally beneficial and the UK castings industry is at the forefront of recycling technology.
