Increasingly common in our green vocabulary are phrases like Product Stewardship, Extended Producer Responsibility and Original Equipment Manufacturer. These are all phrases used to promote the idea that responsibility for a product must ultimately extend to everyone involved in the life cycle of that product.
Undisturbed, Mother Nature, has no difficulty with these recycling concepts. Plants are grown in the soil and returned to the soil, for example, and new vegetation is created. It is seamless and unless interfered with, the process has no resistance.

The recycling process often generates its own stream of by-products which also require innovative solutions. Although our primary focus at Peel Scrap Metal is metal recycling, we increasingly have an interest in plastics since the introduction of our chopping line for wire and cable granulation.
Plastic & Copper
Our chopping line uses insulated wire and cable as its feedstock and separates the metal conductors, copper or aluminum, from the plastic sheathing which insulates those conductors. Both the metal and the plastic are chopped into granules as part of the separation process. The granulated metal is sold as a premium product or ‘chop’.
