Why you should recycle your scrap metal?

Preserve LIMITED METAL SUPPLIES

Metal is such an important part of our everyday lives.  From the device you are reading this on, to the vehicle you drive and the food & minerals you eat – metals are an essential part of our functioning society.

The world has a limited supply of metals and as it stands at the moment, our demand far outweighs our supply.  But the good news is metals are infinitely recyclable, meaning when recycled we can use them again and again.

The better news is, Sims Metal will pay you to recycle your scrap metal.

Get paid cash to recycle your scrap metal

The more immediate benefit for you as a tradie is getting some cash for your leftover scrap.  Sims Metal provides a range of recycling services and always leads the market on price.

Our goal with tradies is to get you in and out as quickly as possible so you can get paid and get back on the road.

Where can you recycle your scrap metal?

Sims Skip Bins

For larger and more regular volumes of scrap metal, we can arrange to have a bin dropped off on your site.  We understand that not all sites have the same access so can arrange to have a custom bin built specifically for your site.

 

Sims metal Pick up services

If you have more than two trailer loads of scrap it might not be that practical to drop it off.  If this is the case, give us a call and we can arrange a pick-up service.

 

sims metal Drop off locations

We have 9 drop off sites across New Zealand for you to come in and drop your scrap metal off. Most of them have dedicated covered areas and we will always have staff on hand to help you unload.
