All metal can be dropped off either at the metal yard, or if you have a load that you are unloading, then the metal can be pulled off your trailer at the tip face. Metal should also be placed at the top of your mini-skips. Metal products are assessed to ascertain whether they can be reused and resold on-site, or if no use can be found, the metal is sent to a scrap dealer. They bale the metal in Hamilton and then send it to Auckland where it’s shredded. Magnets separate out copper and aluminium, and the metal is then put into a furnace to make reinforcing steel.
