Sustainability in Mallorca: Which metals can be recycled?

Many of the metals that we use in our daily lives can be recycled. Cans, tools, cables, motors… Reciclajes y Metales Pérez are specialists in the recovery of ferrous waste and scrap metals in Mallorca and we want to share our knowledge in sustainability with you.

The list of scrap metals that can be recycled is long: iron, steel, lead, brass, bronze, copper, aluminum can be used countless times without losing their properties. These metals are present in cars, machinery and tools, trains, airplanes, kitchen utensils, furniture, cell phones, tablets and computers. To give you an example, according to Ecoembes, the energy saved by recycling 100 cans would light a room for 2 weeks.

It is important to think about the footprint we leave on the planet. At Reciclajes y Metales Pérez we do our bit for the environment. We know that recycling metals helps to reduce water and air pollution and also the energy needed. In addition to saving millions of tons of scrap, we make the environmental footprint of the extraction processes smaller. It is not for nothing that our motto is “Recycling we all win”.

Undoubtedly, we are totally committed to the environment and we are a reference in sustainability in the Balearic Islands: our family business is a leader in Mallorca with more than 40 years of experience in the recovery of ferrous waste and scrap metal. Our objective is to contribute to avoid the pollution produced by waste when it is thrown anywhere. In data, we manage 600,000 kilograms per month of recycled material and we have 100,000 pieces in stock. To achieve this, we have all the human, legal and material resources for a correct and efficient waste management.
