Wanless Waste Management has a global reputation for processing scrap metal. We take all types of ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metal, and process it with state-of-the-art machinery and technology right here in Australia.

Scrap metals include a number of materials such as aluminium, brass, copper, stainless steel, cast iron, lead, zinc and nickel.

Recycling scrap metal contributes to a significant saving in greenhouse gas emissions. Making items from recycled aluminium uses just 5% of the energy as making the same item from raw materials.

There are two primary streams of scrap metals:

Ferrous metals predominantly contain iron. These metals are magnetic and usually offer little resistance to corrosion. Ferrous metals include wrought iron, steel and stainless steel.

  • Non-ferrous metals do not contain iron and are not magnetic. They usually offer more resistance to corrosion than the ferrous metals.
  • Non-ferrous metals include copper, aluminium, lead, zinc and nickel.

By collecting and processing scrap metal, we reduce the ecological impacts of mining raw materials from the ground and reduce up to 97% of mining wastes. Over 50% of the world’s steel production uses recycled scrap metal, making it one of the world’s most recycled materials.

We’re more than waste management

A staggering 9 million tonnes of plastic ends up in the world’s oceans each year, and land-based waste is the greatest polluter. This ocean debris affects about 700 marine species, some of which are now endangered.

To help turn the tide on plastic pollution, Wanless eco(logical) is investing in Australia’s oceans.
