Benefits of Metal Recycling

Recycling metal reduces pollution, saves resources, reduces waste going to landfills and prevents the destruction of habitats from mining new ore.

Secure Destruction Benefits

Secure destruction for businesses is a requirement of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Every piece of data is valuable, no matter how old and companies can’t afford to keep every digital or physical information and just deleting the file or putting it in the bin doesn’t secure confidentiality. Therefore, secure destruction whether it be shredding, granulation, shearing or baling processes is the one way to guarantee that once it’s gone, it’s gone forever.

With a third-party secure destruction service, it takes time off the employees physically having to do it themselves. Therefore, staff can be more productive with their time. Also resulting […]

Soft
Lightweight
Heat resistant
Conductable

These properties make it one of the most widely used non-ferrous metals found in a huge variety of industrial and everyday items – most commonly in drinks cans, but also in other types of food packaging, electrical conductors, and engineering and automotive design!

The best thing about aluminium? It can be recycled indefinitely, without ever losing its quality. As one of the most valuable commonly discarded metals – the aluminium industry in the USA alone pays out almost 1 billion dollars a year for recycled cans – it really […]

Reasons to Recycle: Lead

Lead is a widely used metal due to its dense, malleable and soft characteristics, found in everything from car batteries to paint pigment, ammunition to cable sheathing, dumbells to radiation protection! This metal can be made into a variety of things, however, when it is no longer needed or needs to be replaced it can be challenging to get rid of safely. As it is a toxic metal, lead cannot simply be thrown into a bin and sent to the landfills. When these materials are disposed of improperly, it can cause many hazardous problems, for example, the lead could leak […]

So what better reason to recycle your waste copper with Entrec?
