From Paying To Recycle To Recycling On The Premises: Industrial Scrap Recycling Options

If your industrial plant is like most others, you probably have to pay a company to take your plant's scrap metals away. It is an expense you have come to accept, but it typically is not one for which you like to see the bill. What if there were better ways? There are, but you would have to choose the option that works for your plant now, and then choose the option that will still work or work better for your plant in the future. Here are your options going forward.

Continue Paying a Company to Recycle Your Company's Scrap

Even if you do not like doing this every month, there are cheaper companies available. You can shop around for a company that charges you less to help remove your bulk scrap metal. If you do not want to participate in other programs or if other types of recycling programs are not available in your area, consider finding a recycling company that charges less than what your current recycling company charges you now. 

Recycling Within Your Own Plant

"Green" factories have been converting parts of their property or parts of their factories to metals recycling and smelting plants. It really has gone over quite big with a number of industrial production companies. Being able to melt down all the extra scrap and then pour it and mold it into new sheets or new components for whatever your plant creates is a major move toward self-sustaining practices. It will require a multi-million dollar conversion or construction project, and it may just be something you put on the proverbial back burner for now. However, if you and all other owners, chairpersons, decision makers, etc., decide to do this, then the recycling of your plant's industrial scrap occurs onsite and hundreds of thousands (maybe even millions) of dollars would be saved annually. 

Getting Paid to Recycle

One excellent option is finding a recycling company that will pay you for the industrial scrap metal that your plant produces. Instead of paying an industrial scrap recycling company to remove and recycle your plant's scrap, there are companies that pay you. This is a very popular option, considering how quickly it helps remove scrap from factory grounds and then make money off of every ton of scrap your plant produces weekly or monthly. Pickup schedules are established, and payment occurs within a few days to less than a week after your scrap has been picked up.
