With over 100 years in business, Kimco has become the leader in metals recycling. If you are disposing of scrap metal, whether ferrous or non-ferrous, Kimco will be happy to trade for it at fair market value and handle the materials responsibly.
The process of recycling metals involves first separating and sorting metal types. From there, the metals move on to processing, which includes crushing large chunks down with compactors and reducing them into smaller pieces by shredding. Then, metals are melted down and compounds are purified using electrolysis. The pure metals can then be used in the fabrication of new parts.
