Metals, such as steel (iron), aluminium, copper, lead and zinc, are very valuable as raw materials and can be recycled indefinitely. You can dispose of metal materials via the waste recycling point. Empty tin/metal packaging may also be handed in with the PBD.
What happens to the waste?
Tinplate and other metal can be recycled very well. After collection and sorting, the metals are remelted. Subsequently, new products can be made from it, such as parts for bicycles and cars.
