Metal scrap recycling is the process of separating, cleaning and melting scrap metal to reuse it as raw material for new products. It covers any metal, from cans and wires to laptops and cars. It is an environmental and economical activity that helps protect the environment and natural resources. Metal recycling can be repeated over and over without degrading metal performance.

There are many options for recycling scrap metal, such as scrap yards, mail-in, curbside and pick-up, and donations. Scrap metal can be divided into two categories: ferrous and non-ferrous. Ferrous metals contain iron and are magnetic, such as steel and iron. Non-ferrous metals do not contain iron and are not magnetic, such as aluminum, copper, brass, lead, zinc, etc.

Scrap metal sorting and recycling equipment are tools and machines that help collect, sort, clean and process scrap metal for recycling. Some examples of waste sorting and recycling equipment are:

Metal Shredders: These machines reduce the size and volume of scrap metal by cutting, tearing or shearing it into smaller pieces. SUNY GROUP shredders and pre-shredders are some examples.

Granulators: These machines further reduce the size of scrap metal by crushing or grinding it into pellets or powder. Some examples are SUNY's scrap copper wire granulator.

Briquetting machines: These machines compress loose metal filings or swarf into dense briquettes that are easier to handle, store and transport. Some examples are SUNY GROUP's metal briquetting systems.

The cost of scrap metal sorting and recycling equipment can vary depending on the type, size, quality and features of the equipment. Some factors that may affect cost are:
