There are a number of reasons why you might want to sell scrap in Melbourne, from making a tidy profit for yourself through to doing your bit for the environment. If you want to sell copper scrap, aluminium scrap, sell brass scrap, stainless steel scrap, sell lead scrap, get cash for cans or even sell car scrap, Highett Metal is more than happy to be of assistance. We have been trading in scrap metal since 1961 and are also proud members of the Australian Metal Recycling Industries Association (AMRIA).
If you want to sell aluminium scrap – the second most widely used metal in the world – Highett Metal is listening. We accept anything made from this useful metal, from off cuts to old window frames. As aluminium can be recycled again and again without issue, we are committed to reducing the amount that ends up in landfill or that is mined from the earth.
If you want to sell copper scrap – currently the most valuable metal in the world – Highett Metal is ready to help! We accept anything made from this valuable metal, from insulated wire to dust and even chips. Copper deposits around the world are quickly being depleted, so we are committed to recycling as much of it as possible before it’s too late.
If you want to sell brass scrap – which is a copper-zinc alloy whose different combinations will provide the metal with varying properties – pay a visit to Highett Metal. In particular, we specialise in the purchase of swarf, which is the name given to the waste material that is produced during the manufacturer of various brass components.
If you have an abundance of stainless steel scrap – the name given to chromium steel that contains chromium, carbon and small amounts of silicon and/or manganese – that you wouldn’t mind getting rid of, Highett Metal to the rescue! We accept anything made from this popular metal, from old equipment all the way through to the kitchen sink.
The cash for cans scheme is not new in Australia, yet Highett Metal is happy to continue the tradition. Each year, hundreds of these cans end up in landfill where they lie around collecting dirt, as they don’t break down. It is important to note, however, that they can be recycled and put back into circulation over and over again – after all, they’re made of aluminium.
If you want to sell lead scrap – which must be disposed of appropriately to avoid it leaching into the environment – Highett Metal is happy to offer our assistance. We are committed to disposing of this potentially harmful metal in a safe and legal manner, giving you peace of mind that you aren’t contributing to the problem. We accept anything made from lead.
If you want to sell car scrap – whether you have a vehicle that was involved in a serious accident or one that no longer runs – Highett Metal is more than happy to take it off your hands. We accept all makes and model of vehicle, from Alfa Romeo to Volvo, and are committed to disposing of the various components is as environmentally friendly a manner as possible.
