Iron, Metal, WEEE

Every year, Recyclables handles around 150,000 tonnes of material in the area of iron, metals and WEEE, thus creating the possibility for more and more raw materials to be used over again. Together within the Ragn-Sells Group we use our expertise to optimise our customers' resource value chain.

We handle all types of iron scrap, metals, and WEEE coming from all different areas within our society. We mainly sell to recyclers in Europe and our materials are sold and transported from our yards within the whole Ragn-Sells Group.

Over many years, we have accumulated great knowledge and expertise in this area and are happy to advise our partners. We always welcome follow-up requests.

Our main qualities are: 

  • Iron
  • Copper
  • Aluminium
  • Brass
  • Stainless Steel
  • Incineration scrap (FE and NF)
  • WEEE

We handle most of the grades in these areas, but also other metals.

Collective knowledge in the entire group

This work is carried out by a team of professional, skilled, and motivated employees based in each country. To advise our customers and deliver optimum quality for onward recycling, we try to keep up to date with the latest trends in this area through training and research.

Ragn-Sells actively participates in developments in the recovery sector through the company’s involvement in areas such as industry organisations, research and training, takeback systems, NGOs, and public authorities in the countries where we operate and in the countries where we sell or deliver our products.

Raw material versus waste

The reaction of most people on seeing a discarded beer or soft drink can is that it’s just waste, but we see 25 grams of raw material! It depends on how you look at things. We identify many resources in the waste stream generated by modern society, and we are constantly working to improve our methods of extracting these resources for subsequent use through recycling. Each time we use, recycle, and reuse the resources concealed in the waste stream, it means the earth has to yield that little bit less raw material for new production.

In our modern, vast consumer society, which is growing as living standards improve and purchasing power increases around the world, it's essential to recover as much as possible. It has been decided at the highest political level that we need to work to reduce waste; we must reuse, recycle, put materials to good use, and avoid postponing the problem by sending waste to landfill. If we don't utilise every last scrap, future generations will suffer the consequences of our overconsumption. This means some of the world’s resources will be exhausted and will need to be replaced with substances and materials we don't yet know of or that have yet to be invented, so we don't know what the consequences will be.
