Where does scrap metal come from?

Scrap metal comes from a very wide range of sources. According to the National Waste Report, the construction and demolition industry in Australia produces roughly a quarter of all metal waste. This means much of our focus, and many of our scrap metal removal clients in Sydney, fall under construction or demolition.

Half of all the 5.7 Mt of scrap metal created in Australia annually comes from the commercial and industrial sector, meaning businesses of all kinds. The last 25% is produced as Municipal Solid Waste (MSW). This is household waste, which is often collected through hard rubbish, or weekly council rubbish removal services.

How do we operate?

At Sydney City Rubbish, we deal with all kinds of scrap metal. Most of the scrap we remove comes from construction projects, both residential and commercial. However, we also manage a large amount of office waste, some of which also becomes scrap metal. This only occurs when items like chairs and workstations cannot be reused.

We also specialise in delivering exceptional strip out and demolition services for offices and other businesses in Sydney. Through office strip outs, retail strip outs, and hotel room strip outs, we end up dealing with significant amounts of scrap metal.

Our process is tailored to suit each individual client. This means identifying your needs, finding out as much information as we can about the waste you’re getting rid of, as well as access points to ensure that the job runs smoothly. Then, we’ll remove your scrap metal efficiently, storing it in our rubbish removal trucks. Once we’ve finished up, we’ll ensure that the site is clean, and we’ll take the scrap to a certified recycling facility.

Why do you need expert rubbish removal?

Expert rubbish removal just makes everything easier. We’ve done it so many times that we could almost remove your scrap metal with our eyes shut. But we won’t do that, because health and safety is always priority number one. Instead, we’ll use our experience to ensure your project is completed quickly and safely, and we’ll do it all with a smile on our faces.

Hiring a contractor that doesn’t have the right experience, equipment, or trained personnel is a recipe for disaster. Time and time again, we’ve been called in to clean up someone else’s mess. This just means lost time, and a higher cost for our clients. It’s essential to hire an experienced rubbish removal company to take your scrap metal in Sydney. And the good news is that we’re still both reliable and affordable!

What scrap metal do we take?

We take virtually every type of scrap you can think of! This includes both stripped-down scrap metal, as well as items like furniture. Some examples include:

– Household appliances like washing machines, fridges, and dishwashers.
– Office furniture like compactus, old chairs, and workstations.
– Electronic waste such as computers, printers, and other electronics.
– Miscellaneous scrap metal items.
