Collection, treatment and recovery of scrap metals from manufacturers

Companies have been responsible for the collection and processing of scrap metals since law no. 75-633 passed on 15 July 1975 relating to the disposal of waste and the collection of materials. Legally, the producer of the industrial waste is responsible for its destruction or recycling.

As it is very tightly regulated and often difficult to implement, scrap metal recycling sometimes weighs heavy upon the productivity of companies.

To facilitate the recovery of scrap metals, the METACONCEPT Group offers waste and scrape metal collection and disposal services to companies operating within the metallurgical sector.
With its vast experience in the collection of scrap metals, the METACONCEPT Group has developed a fast and efficient recycling service for the transportation and recovery of tin-, lead- and silver-based waste.


Recycling different types of industrial scrap metals

Whether ferrous or non-ferrous, METACONCEPT handles scrap metals from a variety of different origins:

  • Polluted brazing or dinning baths
  • Wave soldering residues
  • Jewellery waste
  • Off-cuts from tin-based laminates
  • Oxides collected from molten metal baths
  • All scrap metal coming from tinware and electroplating…

The METACONCEPT Group is actively involved in protecting the environment and recycles industrial waste so that it can be re-used.

This prefecture-authorised activity is ISO 9001:2008 certified. Whatever your trade and whether you buy your products from the METACONCEPT Group or from another provider, [contact us] to find out more about the implementation process.


Good to know: 

Each year, an estimated 10 million tonnes of scrap metal in Europe could be subject to additional recycling through the development of alternative methods to crushing


Why recycle complex metals?

  • Retention of the properties of the metal for other uses
  • Economic growth
  • Reduced CO2 emissions, therefore less pollution
  • Reduced energy consumption when casting new metal
  • Less procurement of raw materials
  • Compliance with green business recommendations
  • Enhancement of your own sustainable development strategy
  • Lower logistics costs
