Action Metal Recyclers


Over the years we have established ourselves as one of the leaders in scrap metal across Queensland. We have built our business on understanding what our customers want and providing very competitive prices

With over 50 years experience in the scrap metal recycling industry, we have established ourselves as one of the leaders in scrap metal across Queensland. We have built our business on understanding what our customers want and providing very competitive prices. Before 2013, we employed 25 staff and operated from only 3 sites in Coopers Plains, Kingston and Toowoomba. Today, Action Metal Recyclers employ over 120 employees and provide services from 8 sites across Queensland including Oxley, Banyo, Townsville, Gladstone and the Gold Coast.

Our substantial growth during this time has been achieved through exceptional customer service, our state-of-the-art machinery and technology, which we use to process scrap metal economically and efficiently, which in turn enables us to pay the most competitive prices across all products.

We buy all types of ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metals ranging from the common domestic products such as fridges, window frames and roofing iron,  to commercial scrap metal such as structural steel and machinery.

We services some of Australia’s leading businesses and government organisations throughout Queensland and pride our selves on our prompt response and quality of service.

Action Metal Recyclers are proud to announce a brand new addition to our arsenal – The Comes State-of-the-art Hammer Mill Shredder with the additional Steinert Eddy-Current downstream system!

Replacing our previous model as the primary shredder at Action Metal Recyclers, the Comes shredding abilities massively exceed its predecessor’s.
Our shredder plant delivers a substantial momentum in the recovery of ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metal. With outputs of up to 12,000 HP, we shred material such as car bodies, in seconds!

Our robust, powerful magnetic separation system and eddy-current downstream system convert our shredder into one of the most eco-friendly and recovery efficient machines in Australia.

With these state-of-the-art advances, we secure high purity levels that make our scrap metal extremely desirable globally.
