Before metal can be fully processed and recycled, ferrous and nonferrous materials must be separated from one another. For those who don’t have metal shredding equipment, this can seem like a hurdle to metal recycling. Fortunately, at Scrap Metal Services, LLC, we offer high-quality metal shredding services for equipment and machinery of all types. If you have a metal shredding need, call our team today to learn more about our Chicago shredding services.
In a nutshell, metal shredding simply refers to the process of separating iron-containing (ferrous) materials from non-iron-containing (non-ferrous) materials so that the metal can be further processed. During the process, other materials, such as other recyclables and non-recyclable materials, are also separated.
Most of the time, metal shredding refers to the shredding of automobiles, but it can also be used to describe the shredding of large equipment, heavy machinery, scrap metal, appliances, and any other metal-containing items. Metal shredding is an important step in the process of deconstructing materials and recovering any valuable materials.
Our Chicago shredding services are meant for customers involved in a wide array of industries. In fact, we can even provide metal shredding services for individuals who have old automobiles or other types of large metal-containing equipment on their properties. Most of the time, though, we work with industrial businesses, including foundries, car manufacturers, naval demolition yards, steel mills, scrap dealers, and more.
When you choose to work with us, you can count on our team handling 100 percent of the logistics associated with your metal shredding project. To be sure, we understand that your company may not have the resources to shred metal itself, or even to transfer heavy equipment or machinery to our location for shredding. That’s where our team comes in – we have the logistical capabilities, as well as our own fleet of transportation, to manage any metal shredding job. We are happy to travel to your location to transport metal products to ours for shredding and processing. As a full-service scrap metal recycler, we will also fully process and recycle scrap metal, making sure it’s kept out of the landfill and remains part of a circular economy.
We also offer metal recovery services related to demolition and deconstruction projects – both of which our team can perform. Please call us today to learn more about these services.
Recycling scrap metal is important. By recycling, you’re doing your part to keep materials out of the landfill and reduce the need for new metal mining; you’re also supporting local jobs and the economy. But recycling can feel like a logistical nightmare for businesses without a trusted partner to provide logistical support. At Scrap Metal Services, LLC, we offer Chicago shredding services that put our customers first. We’ll work with you to make sure that recycling with us is as easy as possible, and that choosing us for your metal shredding services in Chicago is a win-win situation.
